Recommended specs to get decent FPS in AMS2?

AMS2 sure looks like it's going to be good. I want it!

But... I'm wondering what kind of FPS I could expect with my system? What's known about this so far?

I have an i7 4770k and a GTX 1080ti (with triples). Should I start saving up for another PC? Is AMS2 expected to be as demanding as Project Cars 2?

If anyone has any insight on these questions, I'd love to know.

I was able to run pcars2 pretty well in most situations on triples at 1080 / 60 on a 2500k (clocked at 4.5) with a gtx 1080.

It struggled in certain situations ( thunderstorms / large ai fields) but 90% of the time it was fine. I’m very sensitive to frame rate drops. I would imagine you’ll be fine, but it depends what you’re after. I reckon your cpu will be more of an issue than your gpu. It was the case for me.

I’d be interested to hear other people’s views, as I’m planning a new pc build this year for ams2.

First post. Yay!

Thanks for your informative first post. And ... welcome to RD. :)

You say "1080 / 60". Does that "60" mean 60 fps?

You’re welcome. Yes, 60 FPS.

I think I read somewhere that Reiza think some of their assets are lighter (resource wise) than the SMS ones.

With new gpu and cpu tech supposedly coming later this year, I plan to wait it out a bit for my planned new build for ams2. I’m hoping my (9 year old!) cpu will allow me to have a dabble just after release (when early bugs are being patched etc), and then dive in fully later in the year with a new machine.

My gtx 1080 could handle pretty high graphics settings at 60fps on triples, so if you’re happy at that framerate, I reckon your GPU will be good enough. Obviously, this is based on pc2.

I suspect your cpu will be struggling. I think a lot of the heavy work of splitting the image across 3 monitors was being done by the cpu in the madness engine.

I guess until the game is released it’s all just speculation, but my hunch is, a cpu upgrade might be worth pondering.

HTH

Based on your PC2 experience, do you guys think a 1070 or 1080 will be totally fine for a single screen user? Like zero issues?

Yes, should be fine although you did not mention the resolution of your screen.

I have 2 computers running @1920x1080. I'll be installing AMS2 on 2 machines, 1 has a 1070 and 1 has a 1080.

If 60 FPS is your target, then both those cards would be fine for pc2. As I mentioned, I was running 3 screens at high settings off a single gtx 1080. I can’t really comment on higher frame rates I’m afraid.

Yes it will be fine.
I’m running dual 27” 2560x1440 Acer predators 144hz on an i5 8400/2060 Super which is 1070ish performance just fine on PC2.

I hope AMS 2 has not the Graphics Problems as in PCars2 in MP Mode that the Graphics stopps for 1 or 2 second .
