I am also disapointed with this games performance on my system, Im not 100% convinced that it is a graphics problem. Now i may be talking out my rear end, and thats likely :banana: But today i have closed as much of vista down as i could and changed my sound settings to stereo and then turned the graphics up for the game to high on everything except motion blur, 1680 X 1050 4Xaa 4Xaf. I had a much more enjoyable time with it on all tracks, but I did notice tracks that are narrow and enclosed seem to suffer far more from poor performance than the wide open tracks, but even the enclosed ones were better, not perfect, just better. McRae dirt had a problem with sounds from other cars causing poor performance and somone did hax the sound files to shut the sounds from the other cars down and hence improve the performance of the races with multiple cars. Maybe its also the case with this game, as for ATI cards suffering in particular, could this be somthing to do with the hdmi outputs on them causing this poor performance we are getting?
