    It all depends on the card, their not all the same. I bought this one : http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-Dual-Link-Graphics-03G-P4-2881-KR/dp/B00GDIIIPW which is an 875mhz card. There is obviously some overhead there, I may explore later.

    my EVGA Titan is basically a 'base' EVGA its normal clock is 830 or something (not at home) but they all have basic o/c mine goes to 900+ when working hard

    My 780ti runs at 1200mhz and I still don't get any higher fps than John at 875mhz, but as I said it gets a higher score with a 3x higher resolution and 8xAA so somethings screwy with this test or somehow I have a bottleneck.
    The test seems to indicate that there is very little gap between massively different hardware, since I have had a 7970 and also a gtx770 I know that this is not the case, each time I upgraded I saw a big jump in performance with rf2. All 3 cards would not score the about the same, so somethings off here.

    After some problems I have finally managed to perform a benchmark and I had to overclock something the old CPU. :)

    CPU: Phenom II 955 3200@3600Mhz
    GPU: R9 290 standard
    Memory: 16GB 1333 MHz DDR3 standard
    Chipset: AMD 890FX standard

    Now it's clear that the system is a bottleneck for the graphics card, since the overclocking of the gpu brings no additional benefit, what was also obvious but previously not been clearly because i guess the graphics card apparently was slowed by the driver.

    However, here the relatively good results as I think on one screen 1920x1080 :

    Min 42, Max 89, Avg 62

    how come the 780s are getting relatively poor 1920x1080p scores? WTF

    It doesn't make sense I know. It's something about the test but I can't work it out. Need to stop looking because I'm going to end up spending money on a z87 mobo and i5 otherwise.

    Some scores look very weird indeed. Guys, bring your drivers settings back to default, start with fresh rF 2 player profile (PLR file mostly) and set rfconfig/gpu settings according to screens from the benchmark package. Otherwise, your scores will be useless.

    It doesn't seem to matter what card and cpu you have you get 50-60 average at any resolution. If you (like I did when not quite sober last night) forget to set to cockpit view, so do the benchmark from the default view the replay starts with (trackside cameras) you get much more sensible scaled results when adding more work (extra AA or higher resolution).

    Could cockpit view somehow be overriding some fps setting? The mins and max figures seem very close. When I run the test from the outside view I see lows of 35 and highs of 120.

    Boost clock its the frequency your card may be running while playing at least until reach 83º and start throttling.


    Your problem is your CPU m8. Intel are far far ahead in CPU's right now...

    Now we have a 680 DCU II OC with lower fps than a 660Ti...

    As Lesiu said all drivers should at least be set to default without any external software to optimize that otherwise this tests are useless....

    is it bad to reuse player PLR? as i have it there for all my wheel ingame settings

    Same setup on triples, tested with standard resolution of 5760x1080 :

    Min 41, Max 66, Avg 54

    I have noticed a issue with the gfx setup menue where after a few tests and changes the performance could adversely be affected to the negativ. I suddenly had problems with the shadow's, although I had before, and yesterday performed some tests without any problems from this direction.

    I have deleted the plr to let create a new and empty CBash, reconfigured everything in the sim and retested. To my satisfaction the problem was gone and the performance back to normal.

    Finally it looks a very satisfatory performance for AMD cards. And as you say you CPU (entire system) is your bottleneck now...

    Ran the bench mark twice yesterday and again to day this is what I got nothing change to the settings.

    Specs on the side, NVCP at default, card at stock "superclocked" speeds, new PLR generated for this test. Something is up here because my results should be much better than some of those above (especially post #36 above me). I used the settings as indicated in the download.

    SLI enabled:
    Frames, Time (ms), Min, Max, Avg
    5690, 155531, 30, 46, 36.584

    SLI disabled:

    Yes it will soon be time for a new base, though I am satisfied with the performance in other games, and rf2 now also runs quite well. That gives me, the development of products and software more time. Maybe I can get still somewhere some power out. I might should try to increase the cpu freq something by the multi, although I do not think there is to get much more performance from the CPU.

    Possibly the next updates of the driver or build can further increase the performance. I for one am now much happier with the way I can experience rf2 :)

    Some people seem a bit slack with their timing, the benchmark should take around 156/157 seconds. Anyway for a laugh here's mine, got awful black shadows/reflections randomly appearing around the track...

    Resolution: 1920x1080
    Drivers: 285.62
    W7 64bit

    CPU: Intel i5-3570k @ 3.4GHz
    GPU: MSI GTX470 @ 650MHz (~7% OC)
    RAM: 8GB DDR3

    Frames: 2116 - Time: 156251ms - Avg: 13.542 - Min: 9 - Max: 22

    HWiNFO64 reporting GPU D3D memory ~1240MB dedicated and ~960MB dynamic!

    Specs on the side. I ran the bench just for fun
