Project Cars 2 PC Performance Review

1440p Performance

At 1440p we can see that none of the GPUs that we have tested was able to achieve a solid 60FPS, showcasing exactly how demanding this game can be when the weather is harsh and the vehicle count is high. 

Even so, every GPU on this graph is able to achieve a solid 60FPS with the correct graphical settings, thanks to the scalability that Slightly Mad's game engine offers. Please look at page 7 to see how scalable the game is at different graphical settings. 

We can also see AMD's R9 Fury X take a small performance lead over the RX 480, though it is clear that AMD's old Fiji flagship does not like Project Cars 2.

Surprised at how demanding the game is given the steep visual downgrade in the lighting and rain effects compared to the first game.

..Photo mode is better though.Quote

This is one of the huge challenges with this kind of testing. There will always be a scenario in a game that will be more demanding than others, but in this case, the performance loss is pretty extreme.

Favorable weather conditions can cause minimum framerates to increase by as much as 45%.

In all the game is extremely scalable and is very easy to run in most situations, though it can really make your PC cry if using unfavourable racing conditions at the game's highest settings.

I kinda wish that I had Bernard's watch or something similar so that this kind of testing could be done within a more reasonable timeframe.Quote
