1080p Performance - Will GRID scale to high refresh rates?

Below we have two sets of tests, one which showcases the game's general performance levels during normal, daytime, races while the other uses the same race track and setup with rainy weather. Most races in GRID are during the day, so we decided to set our standard tests in these conditions. 

During daytime races, all of the graphics cards we tested were able to maintain 60+ FPS framerate averages. Only our RX 580 and GTX 1060 dipped below 60FPS in this scenario at 1080p. This can be mitigated by lowering game settings to High, which will result in a significant boost to game performance.  

We can see with the RTX 2080 Ti that game performance becomes CPU-limited at high framerates. We can see this by looking at the increased gap between the Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti's 99th percentile framerate and 95th percentile framerate. Using a faster processor would likely result in increased game performance at 1080p on an RTX 2080 Ti, allowing the game to more easily max out a 144Hz+ 1080p monitor at Ultra settings.

We can see below that GRID's rainy races offer gamers significantly lower framerates than daytime races. PC players should bear this in mind when adjusting GRID's graphical settings, as great system performance in standard races will not apply to rainy days.

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
