CPU Performance - Core Scaling and the power of DirectX 12

GRID (2019) is the first game from Codemasters to support DirectX 12 exclusively, offering players no option to switch the game to DirectX 11 mode. One of the major benefits of DirectX 12 is the API's ability to make efficient use of multi-core processors when utilised correctly. This is definitely the case for GRID, which sees significant performance increased as we move towards higher core/thread counts. 

In our daytime race tests, we can see significant increases in 99th and 95th percentile framerates as well as average framerate when using higher core/thread counts. It is also possible that even higher core counts, or core clock speeds, could result in further performance enhancements.

In our more demanding rain benchmark runs, we can see similar improvements to GRID's framerate on PC when using higher core/thread counts. While performance seems mostly identical when using our six-core and quad-core hyperthreaded configurations in these benchmark runs; it should be noted that our higher thread count system offers players higher 99th percentile framerates, making the game a lot smoother.

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
