    Does the in-game benchmark take into account your defined graphics settings, or is it a static affair?

    Updated article shows now increased vram usage to 6.1gb and thats on 8gb card with a 11gb card it uses more i guess for cache.

    Lets face it. One of the most expected games on PC this year (at least) has arrived and it behaves in a strange way.

    Its basically 2x more demanding than the rest. And quite unstable (even the benchmark is almost unusable)

    Many ppl cant even start it. And lots of those who can, just watch their monitors with "??" In their eyes, watching their expensive HW crumble.

    We can pretend that this is the "next gen" but truth is, its just a pootly optimized game. Produced by the heroes of the industry, the huge company with infinite budget.

    And they did the same, as the rest of companies. They delivered half azzed product, cashed in on preorders amd 1st day sales, and will MAYBE improve the game to playable state in the following months (my guess is it will take 6 months)

    So here goes... the letdown of the year.

    Its such a let down the masses cant yet even comprehend it. But it is what it is. Sleep and think about it tomorrow and in months to come.

    What a f mess :/

    There is no multi gpu support in this title what so ever... sadly.

    Ironically there has hardly been a game that needed it more than this game.

    there is one 1080ti user who says otherwise a few pages back.

    and on the evga forums sajin (believes he) got sli working with a profile (which i call bs on).

    i think he just found a set of ingame settings which are compatible with some mgpu implementation the game actually has got going.

    Can't really relate to this. The game plays fine. Sure it's demanding but I just knock down a few settings and it's buttery smooth so far.
    And don't be so dramatic dude :confused:

    This game has no DX11 support period.
    What are you even talking about?

    Could the bad results from graphic cards mean its ported down from consoles?

    I've settled for everything on high, textures at ultra, taa on high and resolution scale to 150%. Makes TAA that more usable, and without the shimmer you get for playing without it. Only downside is that I'm playing on ~40 FPS instead of ~60 FPS which is a downer but hopefully we'll see some improvements soon.

    Hey @Hilbert Hagedoorn Do you remember if GTA V had performance issues at launch? It was a while ago so I can't remember I think I was still on my Q6600 and dual 570s back then.

    It had both performance issues and they introduced a commit leak in the first patch.

    I love when nVidia cards are not doing that well we must blame the developers but when AMD cards (or every products really) are not doing well then it's all on AMD. Obviously it's Rockstar so we all knew it was going to be a piss poor console port. But it doesn't change the fact the 2070 Super doesn't look good at all here for the price it is sold at.

    Really RTX lineup (outside of maybe 2080) doesn't look great and i don't think nVidia needs any help here to not make it look great. And this is coming from someone who has been using nVidia cards for the past 15 years. RTX 2070 Super is barely better than a 5700 XT and in Canada it is currently 120$ (138$ with taxes) more expensive. Unless you care very very very much about underpar ray tracing performance man this is a hard pill to shallow.

    At this point my decision is pretty much final i'll go with a 5700 XT. It's 540$ CAD instead of 660$ CAD for the 2070 Super. I'll jump into ray tracing in 2-3 years when it will be more mature.

    Rage engine has evolved. From a single threaded dx11 and nvidia favored to multi threaded dx12 amd favored.

    Pretty streight forward.

    Now that I've played the game, as a 1080 Ti user. I think the fps is kind of justified. If ya'll just went in and saw the graphics, and i mean really see them for what they are. They done did it again,
    pushed a lot of stuff to their absolute limit. The game is utterly gorgeous and I'm starting to wonder how its even running real-time at all. All the whining about it being poorly optimized is ignorant at best.

    This. I still can't get over how negative people are being. I'm not making excuses for Rockstar or Nvidia, but I think a game like this with it's cinematic style and excellent animation works just fine and plays very fluid even in the 40fps range. Not to mention it's much slower paced than something like GTA 5.
