Since Simbin installed the new patch the race series is as slow as crap on my system. Stutters as many no one likes.

In the past I've given setups in the ATi screen that helped numerous of people, but I can't solve it now.

I'm using an HD4850 and I'm running maxed out, 8xAA, 16xAF and 1920*1080 on 22" monitor. I also do not want to lower this as I'm used to these settings..

So I'm focusing on ATi drivers now, and have tried 9.6, 9.9 and 9.10 all of them didn't solve it..

I think it's a problem with the latest patch... But if someone has it running smoothly, please tell me how...
OT: The offline pre-release version of Race On worked sooo smooth..

//edit tried around and so, and it seems it's mainly Curitiba causing a problem. All other tracks are doing fine..

Temp is not a problem, 36 idle and 60 load in my new computer case. Formerly it was 38 idle, 65 load..
Regards to drivers, I don't want to go back too far mainly cause of GTA4 having problems in old drivers. 9.6 worked fine for a long while, until after the patch. But now I read your story Michel, I think it's the latest patch with a problem.

Settings in CCC
8xAA, 16xAF, Catalyst AI disabled, mipmap @ quality, vsync on

Like I've always recommended these settings.

I think I'll wait for the patch from Simbin then.. And not drive Curitiba in th meanwhile.

Hi Johan, when I had my 4850 512mb I would get stuttering on certain tracks (after Simbin released a patch around the time of STCC) , basically I found tracks with lots of trees close to the track would lag. The only solution I found was the reduce the AA in the video options to 2 samples rather than 3 and reduce the track view distance to far.

Hope this helps.

Since I got my 5850 everything is maxed! :D :woot2:

I have the 512MB version and never had these problems until the last patch:thinking:. I've always ran maxed out.
I'd like to have a 5850, but atm it's too expensive for me and I'd have to upgrade my whole computer.

here it's basically Curitiba, Road America after the kink and the Nordschleife are all doing fine except Curitiba and brands a bit. I don't know what Simbin did with the latest patch to create worse results :(

Turning down AA works, but I just don't want to do that :p. And I guess you know why :p.. Simbin just should fix these issues..

3870, latest driver (just got updated recently by win-update), win7

I did not change anything in CCC, so what ever the default is. The game I confiured for 3xAA (interesting one, how does this relate to the CCC configuration)?

No problems here. Details in game all at max @ 1600x1050 plus a second screen with 1200x1024.

1xAA game = 2x in Catalyst
2xAA game = 4x in catalyst
3xAA game = 8x in catalys
