    What graphics card is everybody running

    Mine is a gtx 1050ti its pretty decent but i have seen it up to 90-100% at times !

    Will rf2 run on dx12 where we can split graphics load between 2 cards ?

    rF2 does not do dx12. You could still use 2 cards(I think) with an SLI cable.

    My card is not sli compatible :(

    Does studio 397 plan to convert rf2 to dx12 ?

    There is nothing that would indicate they will.

    If you have an AMD card, it runs dx11 just fine. They have listed DX12 as far back as the RX-480, but all those cards, afaik, have no issues with dx11.

    Hello
    If your gpu works close to 100% its not always bad it means you are not bottlenecking cpu for example

    1050ti is old gen what resolution and graphics setting are you running the game at?

    I have 3 screens running at 1920 x 1080

    The cpu has 16 cores and i run 64gb ram

    The central screen does most of the work, the side screens are not that busy

    The settings are not handy right now but a lot of the unnecessary detail is turned down

    I run a 1050 Ti, it's still doing its job for 1080p, but would never have thought anyone runs triples with it... interesting. The 4 GB VRAM is starting to get short even on 1080p single screen.

    I can run at medium-high detail if I make sure to close browser and other background apps before starting the sim. rF2 performance really tanks once you hit the VRAM limit, but obviously it depends on the content you run as well. Nordschleife with S397 GT3 cars can easily consume twice more VRAM than running, say, a couple of years old mod on a shorter track.

    SLI is all but usless these days. A good upgrade would be a mid-range GPU with 8 GB VRAM, but good luck finding these now. :)

    I run of my set up which is triple 1080p with a 6700xt locked at 75fps with MAX settings and GPU utilization at 100% in some tracks

    I don’t know what FPS you are getting but I don’t see how a 1050ti would do the cut to be honest

    Good luck in any case

    When you say monitor sync - do you mean where all 3 monitors are set as one ?

    Can rf2 run with 3 seperate monitors ?

    Yes, it has decent triple monitor support - as long as they're the same resolution and preferably the same size. Can either present them as a single big resolution (with nVidia surround for example) or the game can be set to run a custom windowed resolution.

    It doesn't handle different resolutions between screens, or any height differences.

    With 'identical' screens, it offers multiview (meaning the side monitors are given a different viewpoint, allowing them to wrap around the driver without distortion). A weird combination of screen sizes/resolutions may necessitate running the screens close to flat/straight to avoid distortions - rF2 can only split the resolution into 3 equal sections horizontally.

    Over Clocking. Speeding up the Video Ram by using an app that will adjust the memory frequency. The higher the clock speed of the memory, the supposedly faster it transmits data.
