I cannot get the game to work with any playable frame rate, after trying every combination of settings, tricks, fixes, etc. In fact, the game is not performing worse than it did with I originally installed it. I cannot figure out why. I have tried changing the settings in the ATI CCC, in the game, even putting the settings down low.
Right now the FPS is dropping from 50 in some cases, but not consistently to 8 or 9 fps within a few feet on a track. Also, all of a sudden there is a thumping noise with the 60's F1 car.
I think I have a pretty decent system, and do not expect to be having these issues. I can run GTR Evo Steam version with the settings maxed and get 100 fps. Scratching my head as to why I cannot get any usable fps in rfactor2.
In case anyone is curious here is my system:
i7 920 overclocked to 4ghz
ATI HD5850 Video card, with moderate overclock
Triple screens with Triplehead2go
Asus motherboard with realtek audio
I have updated every driver I can think of and no luck with anything. Even did a scan for malware and viruses. Very frustrating. Hope the next update helps with this.
