Project Cars 2 PC Performance Review

VRAM Usage 

Throughout our testing, Project Cars 2 never used more than 4GB of VRAM, making the game's highest resolution textures usable on almost all modern GPU hardware. 

GPUs with 3GB of VRAM or more will have no issues running this game with its highest resolution textures at 1080p, allowing a lot of older hardware to utilise the game's highest texture settings. This is great news for those that are using 3GB GTX 1060 GPUs or older GPUs like the AMD HD 7970 (3GB).

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
