AMD is working on Project Cars Performance Issues

 

AMD has many performance problems with Project Cars, with even AMD's highest end GPUs being crippled in terms of performance compared to the Nvidia competition.

Slightly Mad Studios' says that "Nvidia has not paid us a penny" for AMD's performance issues in project Cars and has given AMD 20 digital copies of the game to help them create optimized drivers as soon as possible. Here is a statement from Slightly Mad's Ian Bell.

 

“We’ve provided AMD with 20 keys for game testing as they work on the driver side. But you only have to look at the lesser hardware in the consoles to see how optimised we are on AMD based chips.

We’re reaching out to AMD with all of our efforts. We’ve provided them 20 keys as I say. They were invited to work with us for years, looking through company mails the last I can see they (AMD) talked to us was October of last year.

Categorically, Nvidia have not paid us a penny. They have though been very forthcoming with support and co-marketing work at their instigation. We’ve had emails back and forth with them yesterday also. I reiterate that this is mainly a driver issue but we’ll obviously do anything we can from our side.”

 

 

Hopefully AMD will have a new driver developed which will fix these issues soon, but strangely on the game does perform great on AMD's hardware in both of the current generation consoles.

Regardless, this need to be fixed. A 660Ti is faster than a 290X ffs...Quote

If game developers actually knew how to code a game, driver optimisations wouldn't be needed every time a new friggin game releases...Quote

I guess they were too busy screwing around making Free-Sync not quite work for the past few months.

Nvidia bias maybe? They've been quoted in Nvidia PR stuff/presentations for ages on how 'fanatstic' Nvidia are to work with.

I mean, AMD have been lazy in the past but (excluding gameworks games) when was the last time this happened?Quote
