    Hmm... AI control should almost certainly avoid the CPU issue. Maybe we are talking about different things after all.

    I don't know. I own the game since last monday, and today is the first they I experience that much lag. It was okay before, but now it's just too much,the game is not playable.

    this is it,but after a crash. the purple bar is full when I'm driving. when the AI is driving,it disappears,it's not filled like when I'm driving. and the lag goes away too,when the AI's in control. just tested it

    Everytime you are telling us something else!
    Few posts before you said letting AI drive does nothing in terms of lag/stuttering!??
    However, strange behaviour your system shows! Loading times of 15 to 60 minutes is ridicoulus!
    Maybe your HDD is bad/defective? Don´t know anymore, really....
    Hope someone here can figure it out with you.

    Yes,because before letting the AI drive did nothing. But now I've tried it again with different graphical settings (all on low),and it does.

    edit : Sorry, I should've said that !!!

    That screenshot is when you are lagging or not?

    It is when I'm lagging,but the purple bar usually reaches the right side completely.

    Yes. Yesterday the game was working with stock car and tracks. Even with AI. it was smooth.
    I haven't changed anything. Turned on my laptop this morning to play the game,and it's broken. Both with downloaded and stock content.

    Energy saving settings due to battery usage?
    Did you checked that?

    Yes. Power plan on high performance, in advanced settings everything turned up. Every CPU / INTEL / BOOST thing is off in the BIOS. I'm not running anything in the background. Everything seems fine. I can run Rfactor 1 on full graphics and I get 60 fps. I can run other games with 60 fps and no lag as well,just checked COD Ghosts

    I use VSync. I'm sure I can achieve a lot more.

    The purple bar should never go that close to max, it should stay around 50% to be within a safe margin. Your CPU is quite recent, so I suspect it's not running at max performance. Try changing Windows power management scheme to "High performance" or plug in your laptop power plug (sometimes laptops running on battery lose 50% of FPS).

    Btw, rF1 is no good reference for performance, it's a 12 year old sim built in the time when multi-core CPU's didn't exist.

    @Alexxx0 What controller are you using? (wheel/pedals/joystick/whatever)

    I'm using a wheel.
    I removed my battery, my laptop is plugged in, it's on high performance.
    If I had something eating resources, wouldn't other games lag too ?

    @Alexxx0 sorry, I meant exactly which wheel are you using - brand, model, driver version. In case that's an issue.

    rF2 puts the player in the loop, reading your input many times each second, adjusting the physics response each time, and outputting new FFB values to your wheel. Many other games will run along by themselves if your input is delayed, or will just skip forward if your CPU can't keep up momentarily, whereas rF2 will still calculate all those physics steps, which are then out of realtime (in slow motion). That makes it more demanding, not as overall CPU usage (like task manager reports) but in each part of every second. Your CPU is quite new but its clock speed isn't all that fast, so it doesn't take much for rf2 to start asking too much of it if other things are also taxing it.

    Sorry for the late reply, I had to deal with school and stuff :)

    My wheel is: Logitech Formula Vibration Feedback Wheel. My drivers are from their website. I'm using logitech profiler. My drivers are downloaded through logitech gaming software.
