    It's cleverly done to look like so but the reflections are updated every 10-15 seconds instead of something like every 0.2 seconds on low (which makes it stutter) and perhaps in real-time on high (can't notice any stutter at all, like with it off). What you are seeing on reflective surfaces (cockpit and car bodywork) as you drive along is a constant reflection map taken at some point in the last 10-15 seconds. If you look carefully, you will notice the reflections suddenly pop in new reflection map.

    It's usually quite unperceivable but occasionally it is obvious, such as when the reflection map is updated as you are driving in a shaded area of track and then you drive out into a bright area of track and sometime later the reflection map updates and you notice the pop-in effect of the new reflections.

    I hope ISI can tweak this with some sort of gradual fade between the two? Because the performance loss is too great for high, low sucks and off is perfect apart from the pop-in effect.

    I've tryed the current beta with the 290 and i'm not sure if it's placebo but anyway everything is more stable, but a performance increase is not noticeable.

    Still time for some compliments because it looks great and performs relatively good with the settings i use atm with a singlescreen. To be honest i can't see a big difference to some of the current competitors.

    The combination of GT3's/Open Wheeler and Silverstone looks great and it makes much fun to drive with lesser AI's and above 120 fps.

    I hope everything else get sorted out with time, hopefully very soon.

    I have the GTX770 which is a direct competitir, and Im having your fps with +-200% your resolution if thats not a big difference ...

    You are on 1920x1080 (2,07Mpx) and Im on 3840x1024 (3,93Mpx)

    Yes that is, and i'm aware of that issue but above 120 fps is still enough for some fun and generating impressive visual results.

    edit: you get me wrong, with competitors i meant not the hardware. :)

    MPx doesn't have a big impact on AMD card, the problem is anywhere else.

    I now have same fps than your 770 at 4032*1024, reflections off, transparency AA off.

    Visually I don't see much difference.

    The latest beta 13.11 think its 9.4 is quite a big improvement over the last few releases, for me anyway. No idea about benchmarks but the first and last corners at malaysia are now pretty driveable, so the experience is smoother one for AMDers. Tomorrow I will have the gtx so can make a good comparison.

    To all the people than benched their AMDs in this thread, (especially 79x0 users) , can you please redo the tests with the brand new drivers? :) Lol

    All cards tested with the same system(cpu, ram, hdd etc...)?

    Just tested with new drivers and its around 3 fps worse off for me.

    CPU: I7 920 @ 3.8 ghz
    GPU: Sapphire 7970 oc edition
    RAM: 12gb 1600mhz
    Drivers: AMD 13.11 betas(9.4) old average of 27.8 with 13.10s(9.2)

    2013-11-24 20:01:09 - rFactor2
    Frames: 5034 - Time: 200492ms - Avg: 25.108 - Min: 11 - Max: 58

    I don't think cpus hard drives etc are going to make a huge difference in rf2.

    Got a new gpu today so I'll did your bench as a gtx760 was still missing from your list :)

    RAM: 16gb 1600mhz

    Hi all,

    Loch Drummond replay benchmark:-

    CPU: Intel Core i5 2500k@4.5Ghz

    GPU: 780GTX Classified@1306Mhz Boost

    RAM: 8Gb 1600Mhz DDR3

    Drivers: 331.82

    Frames: 19644 - Time: 205656 - Min: 76 - Max: 130 - Avg: 95.519

    I highly recommend this GPU for Rf2, currently costs £100 less than the Ti in the UK and is stupidly overclockable! 1400Mhz is possible with a voltage tool without voiding the warranty, and mine is happy at 1306Mhz all day long. :)

    We really need a triple screen benchmark to see the effect of having more video memory, as that is where you should probably see the difference and maybe influence the choices people make. I decided to get the Evga classified gtx770 4gb for this very reason, I could of course be assuming wrong but there is a reason the titan had 6gb. Higher resolutions require more memory I believe. It would be nice to see SLI vs single card in a triple screen benchmark too. Plus I would be really interested if someone with a SLI setup could run that FCAT test that shows micro stutter levels, as im so pleased with my card I'm immediately wondering about getting another for an 8gb video ram setup. Had my fingers burnt with a crossfire setup and micro stutter before so really wary of SLI. Changing from the 7970 to this nvidia card is like getting the greatest build of rfactor 2 to date!

    Incidentally in the player folder the config file contains a line "run benchmarks" I tried enabling it but couldn't see where to go from there. Maybe it isn't implemented or maybe it needs something typed in the CLI. Maybe somebody who knows stuff could look at that? An integral benchmark not requiring fraps that reported all your in game as well as clock settings would be a great tool.

    don't get confused with sli or crossfire regarding ram, they don't get added together as you may think, ie 4gb +4gb wont =8gb, anyway your 4gb card wont ever get saturated imo.

    I didn't know that but I checked and that is true. But I must be maxing out my 4 gb card now, it certainly won't run everything maxed out at playable levels on 3 screens, I doubt it would on 1 screen. I doubt a titan does either. That's why I'm calling for a 3 screen benchmark. Really to be properly playable you want min fps levels of 85, for your input and the graphics to feel fluid and related. I'd like to know what you need to get those levels of performance on 3 screens maxed out, or if it is even possible with todays hardware.

    You need at least 2x780 Ti's to get close to a min fps of 85, in triple screens & using multiview, and hope that the sli scaling is working very well.

    Maxed out graphics are overrated. Put every single thing 1 step from max. Should barely be able to tell the difference, especially while driving.
