    Could you try to run with default graphic settings? Move/backup your player.json file, the game will create new file with default settings, just change the resolution to see what you get.

    Thanks for the help, the issue was the pci express, i had the 2.0 8x, now i reactivated the 2.0 16x.
    From 2.0 8x to 2.0 16x i gain about 50%-80%....

    I guess this still happens with RF2. Interesting...

    Yeah and the difference seems to have increased. It was 12% back when this thread first started but I tested today and the difference now seems to be 20%. But I didn't perform the bench test of this thread when observing a 20% difference between 2.0 x16 and 3.0 x16.

    Results with latest build 998:

    CPU: i5-4690K @ 4.4GHz
    rFactor 2 Build: 998
    Graphics driver version: 355.82

    1080p:

    2.0 x8 to 2.0x16/3.0x8 = 46% increase

    2.0 x16/3.0 x8 to 3.0 x16 = 22% increase

    1440p:

    2.0 x8 to 2.0x16/3.0x8 = 37% increase

    2.0 x16/3.0 x8 to 3.0 x16 = 16% increase


    In the previous post i said it was a 12% increase when i tested last year but i may have confused that with my GTX 770 results. Anyway, skimmed through and found someone with a 970 from last year who reported an 18% increase. So perhaps performance differences between different pci-e modes has changed with new rf2 builds.
