Project CARS Devs Address AMD Performance Issues

There is a post on the Project CARS Steam forum addressing performance issues on AMD based video cards. It seems that the developer is blaming AMD's drivers for the performance issues.

  • We've provided AMD with 20 keys for game testing as they work on the driver side.

  • But you only have to look at the lesser hardware in the consoles to see how optimised we are on AMD based chips.

  • What can I say but he should take better stock of what's happening in his company. We're reaching out to AMD with all of our efforts. We've provided them 20 keys as I say. They were invited to work with us for years.

  • Looking through company mails the last I can see they (AMD) talked to us was October of last year.

  • Categorically, Nvidia have not paid us a penny. They have though been very forthcoming with support and co-marketing work at their instigation.

  • We've had emails back and forth with them yesterday also. I reiterate that this is mainly a driver issue but we'll obviously do anything we can from our side.

  • Some great gains we saw from an earlier driver they released have been lost in a later driver they released. So I'd say driver is where we start.

  • Again, if there's anything we can do we will.

*UPDATE* AMD says it is working on a fix
