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.

Was interesting to see the 5700xt so close to the 2070S and with a nicer imageQuote

With dx11 my vega is 9% faster. However with dx12, i can use radeon image sharpening.
Dx11 is also better with my GTX980. I am waiting for a Sli profile.

The game looks ok but Forza 7 or Forza horizon 4, destroy GRID in term of visual quality and performanceQuote

Feels bad to give rather harsh critique to people whose word I take as canon in other hardware like cases, but these performance comparison videos don't convey much information even if you overlay the FPS of each benchmark run.


There should be more, even if it's just fraps bench viewer (link) graph, FCAT being the gold standard, but when DigitalOcean gives pretty deep analysis of where the GPUs fare well or badly compared to their competition, there's not much these offer over their analysis. And I understand the massive amount of work involved in that, but at the moment this looks like a whole lot of extra work for content which others do better.Quote

What I'll say here is that you can't expect anyone that's starting something new to come out with AAA-class content immediately. It takes time to learn things and as we learn more things will get better.

If you can, please PM me some links to this DigitalOcean. I've never heard of them and would like to see what they can do. Googling them isn't showing me anything outside of web hosting services.Quote
