Project Cars 2 review: benchmarks with 23 graphics cards

Which card do you need for high-octane graphics?


Testing method

We have tested Project Cars 2 with 23 different graphics cards, ranging from the entry-level AMD RX 550 all the way up to Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and AMD’s Radeon RX Vega 64. The benchmark consists of a lap on the Long Beach street circuit alongside 20 other drivers. The track is full of buildings and spectators, making it one of the tracks that will demand the most out of your set-up. The weather is set to “Clear” for the first set of benchmarks, but we will take a look at the effects of some other weather types on the performance of the game.

Below you will find a video of our test run, recorded while using a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti with the resolution set to 4K and settings on Ultra.

For this test we are using our GPU test system, which houses the following components:

For both the AMD and Nvidia cards we use the drivers with the latest game-specific optimisations. For AMD this is the Radeon Software Crimson ReLive 17.9.2 version, for Nvidia we use driverversion 385.69.
