    FX 8320 clocked at 4ghz, AMD RX480 8GB, 8GB RAM, Windows 10 creator update in game mode.
    With the last beta update, 1080p, AA5, after one lap, 20 cars on track and displayed, silverstone, formula ISI 2012. Check the min and average fps, don't pay attention to the max.

    Settings

    PP None

    PP Medium

    PP Ultra

    It changes a lot depending on the car. Lower result with the corvette and again lower with the GT500.

    56 fps on the grid with DX11 and 63 with DX9, no pp.
    DX9 is still faster.

    Tested with shadows MED and PP LOW and now i had a ~60 (around pit) - 90FPS (couldnt even get that in DX9 with medium shadows so thats a nice development so far). The only issue is fullscreen not working and thus vsync isnt working and thus sim is stuttering. Cant wait to get vsync working again.

    I've lost about 20fps with the latest patch,not a big deal as if it means others get better performance I can live with it.

    Man, this is just typo or bug. The dx11 branch in steam cannot run in dx9 mode! You do not need a dev for this.

    Pretty sure they are printing the latest available dx9 version while hiding other versions. Dx11 rf2 is a newer version of dx9 rf2. So you might find tiny things like that in the game. I doubt this is important at this stage. But you are free to send in a bug report.

    rFactor2 launcher shows that 1.4 is installed. I have also deleted rFactor2 steamapps cache to force package re-download but it didn't help.

    it works fine here with headphones output. I tried to check the sound on youtube and it seems to be the sound of the 2017 model.

    The sound is still offset. Try changing driving view while driving or looking back. You'll hear the right speaker go louder when not in cockpit view.

    @Gonzo Just tried @Will Mazeo tip, and installed After Burner, it was early morning when I noticed the info on the launcher, and @Will Mazeo was right MSI Afterburner did say rFactor 2 is running in D3D11, so thank you @Will Mazeo ;)

    Rolled back to DX9. Performance is much better.
    Will come back when full screen is available again.

    Do any of you think that having Direct X 12 would cause any issues with this new update?

    More I would say as there would be thousands with W7 having nothing to drive plus those with cards that couldn't drive DX12

    I just had a full multiplayer race on DX11.
    Car: USF2000
    Track: Lime Rock
    Multiview, AA 4, PP none.

    Yes, FPS isn't as high as it should be, but NO STUTTERING!!! It ran smoothly from practice to the race's checkered flag.
    Couple of issues though:
    1) as others have mentioned, alt+ctrl+del doesn't work, same as alt+enter
    2) I had Discord opened, the push-to-talk button was working, then I joined the server in Fullscreen and the push-to-talk stopped working. Again, after quitting rF2, push-to-talk was back in operation. Audio was fine, though. So I don't know, could be Discord, could be rF2 DX11 Fullscreen problem.

    It already was. The button was working as long as I wasn't on rFactor2.
