Rain or No Rain - Performance as changeable as the weather?
Before jumping into the data. Please note that this performance analysis comes in two parts. We have the written component and the video component, both os which was worked on by OC3D staff across the UK. As such, some of our data comes from different members of OC3D's staff. This means that some of our data doesn't necessarily line up perfectly due to differences in racing style and track settings. Data from each member of OC3D staff are offered on separate graphs and are never used together.
The data below comes from OC3D's managing director, Tom Logan.
GRID;'s performance is hugely dependent on the game's race settings, so much so that the game's weather can have a larger impact than many of the game's graphical options. If it's raining, expect your PC to be hit hard, but when it isn't, expect the game to run like a dream.
More often then not, when the game's rain effects are enabled, the game's framerate can tank by 15-20%. This applies to all resolutions and to both Radeon and Geforce graphics cards.
