I'm getting 40-60fps which is totally playable, just wondering if my settings are optimal. Anyone care to post the settings they find work the best in terms of the AA combinations, texture detail etc? I have a HD7970 with i5 4670k
Connor just get fraps to see your fps, it's free. Lazarou, I tried your settings and found my fps to be the same but the game looked much lower in detail. I guess my poor fps is due to my amd gpu, hope they update drivers soon. I suggest you try my settings which likely won't affect your fps but will make it look much better.
First race for me and my GTX 660 fried on me... Caused all sorts of problems and I had to run Windows in safemode until last night when my new GTX970 showed up. So far it's working well, but I haven't had much chance to mess with settings. I'll check tonight also and post what I'm getting.
Also my new GPU temps are around 72deg C. That should be okay right?
Some things you can lower to get improvements in FPS is Reflections, they can really bring down frames when it rains as when things are wet, they reflect more, there is almost no difference between high and medium shadow details, only high takes more from your system, particles is something you can lower as well, you barely see them only when you or other cars crash.
Bloom, turn it off, it eats away at your frames, same goes for Motion Blur. Grass can be lowered to medium because when do you really see the grass? Most of the time you are going 100 km/ph.
Also, the higher the AA the more it will eat at your CPU and make it work harder (the reason why we see allot of people with AMD CPU's complaining about higher temperatures), the physics engine in the game has been proven to be put more strain on AMD GPU's as Nvidia has implemented their Physics engine in the game so more cores are used while with AMD it uses one main core and stresses it out. Hope this helps out...
Can someone suggest how to get the shimmering of the white lines and fencing please. GTX 770 mostly high with a couple of Ultras but it's the AA and AF which don't seem to be eliminating the shimmer/flashing. Game looks amazing otherwise.
