Curious how it handles rf2 at 1080 p? I am building a new system and want to turn up the eye candy.
6gb vram is not enough for rf2 i guess, especially on lemans and nurbs, if you use opponent detail on high (not full), you can max everthing for 1080p
I have an hd7950 now, and its good except on nords. System ram will be doubled too, and from 8gb 800 mhz ddr2 to 16 gb 3200 mhz ddr4. Plus a much better processor, from phenom II x4 970 to a ryzen 5 3600. So, hopefully i should be good.
As was mentioned, unless you run Nordschleife with 40+ AI cars, that card should be good enough to run maxed @ 1080p. And with 40 cars you can just drop the opponent texture or better, circuit texture detail level, one notch, game will still look 99% the same but consumes 20-30% less VRAM.
Thanks Stone. I thought it would be fine for 1080p. I watched a lot of videos on youtube about the card, and it seemed great for what i want it to do. Now i just need to install Win 10, all my drivers, and see how it looks.
I am blown away by how great this upgrade was. with everything maxed, except post processing on high, getting well over 100 FPS at Nords.. But, my wheel shot craps, so now i need a new one lol.
Can I ask what CPU you have? This is the card I'm looking to get as well and am very curious what performance to expect in rF2. Thanks.
Ryzen 5 3600, with 16 gb ddr4 3200.
I also bought an Arctic Feeezer 34 esports cooler for the cpu. Works great and is only about $40 @ newegg. I read a few posts about the stock cooler not cutting it for gaming. So i figured, better safe than sorry.
A few screenshots with fps. Be advised, if you enable FXAA in Nvidia contol panel, it will drop your fps quite a bit. These are with it off. I was still getting decent fps with it on, 80-100, but I really can't tell a difference in the IQ with it off.
Hey just to add on to this I'm using the same config as you R5 3600 and GTX 1660 S.
I suggest looking at this guide to extract the best performance.
I've been able to manage fine at both 1080p and 1440p, especially if you reduce opponent car detail to low.
What sort of fps/what settings were you getting with the 7950?
