    Ati 7870 Graphyc Card...This same series, i talk

    But thanks Led.

    I read in several forums about problems with this graphyc series and 3 monitors trouble too.

    If any user could confirm that he can match, i need to know what dongle do you use with 7870;)

    Mobility user here - HD6770M (Macbook Pro / Bootcamp 8.1 x64). Installed 14.4's and was getting steady 42fps mid race. Have just downloaded the enduro patch, and now I'm sat at steady 60ish mid race. Worth considering for others using mobile GPUs.

    Tried this, now rFactor2 doesn't start up anymore. Loads up the splash screen then crashes. Will have to revert back to the unmodded drivers.

    To be honest, for mobility, best improvement is to get used to flipping mirrors on and off whilst racing as and when you need them rather than having them permanently on... 75fps without mirrors, 45fps with mirrors. Could do with ability to turn mirrors on whilst holding a button, mirrors off when button released, rather than button press cycling thru mirror modes.

    Hey guys, haven't checked in, in a while. Wanted to comment on my findings.. I bought a 290x ($499usd), and I laughed for a while at how great the sim runs now, pushed to the limit. There are no more settings to max out, with crazy AA from the CC too. At Silverstone, I as gettting 50-60 frames with my old card with setting on high, no reflection, high shadows, and no blur.

    This card at those settings were pushing 180 or more frames. I turned up everything, and added 8eq aa, and am getting 80-100 frames in a race, with 30 or more ai, as well.. CRAZY really. This card, this card here that I have, get this card if you like Radeons. Get a 280x ($299usd) also, that card tears this game up a friend tells me, pretty much the same settings. Word of warning though, lol. Make sure you have a full size tower if you get the windforce, it's 12 (11.25inch 285mm) inches long! I had to get a full tower to make the room, lol. Runs fantastic now.

    A friend gave me an EAH5850 1G some months back.
    I was getting decent frames but only with shadows killed (I think I had 13.9 driver).

    I installed x32 new build, but didnt see much improvement at fps, I was getting 2(!!) at Monaco with max shadows.
    Then yesterday i decided to try 14.4, I seldom try new drivers before a year passes, most of the times I get problems than (small anyway) improvements.

    Well, my fps shot from 2 to 60 !!!
    I run now Monaco Full shadows (one click down from max) on 80 fps.
    It feels like I bought a new game :)

    Btw at X64 I dont see much difference.
