Project Cars Not Sabotaged But AMD are Working to Fix Performance Issues

Project Cars claims to be the ultimate driver journey, combining the “passionate community of racing fans and real-life drivers”, to create an immersive racing world with next-gen graphics and career development game play. But like most modern games the release has been plagued by bad news, in this case, Performance issues.

With AMD graphic card users claiming to have performance issues with the game, even on the top end AMD GPU’s. Ian Bell, the “big boss” at slightly mad studios has spoke out regarding rumours that the problem with this performance may have been due to Nvidia paying for the “issues”. He states that Nvidia have not paid the company one penny and were very supportive throughout develop and even now after release supporting them with driver issues. He does claim however that they gave AMD 20 keys for the game to be tested and have been inviting the company to work with them for years, and looking back at the company emails the last time they received a communication from AMD was October of last year.

Claiming that looking at the lesser hardware available in consoles shows how optimised they are on AMD chips, later on AMD’s Vice President announced through twitter that AMD is now working with Slightly Mad Studios to fix the performance issues.

With modern day gaming being plagued by performance issues on a variety of hardware, and the business models of companies coming under attack for expensive season passes, can companies afford to wait for the damage to be done before stepping in to fix performance issues?

Thank you DSOGaming for providing us with this information.

    You know what, I’m sick and tired of AMD’s approach to driver updates/improvements.

    Every article and new release comes with the same crap, the game plays well on Nvidia and performance issues on AMD. Even more so for me with crossfire 295X2, performance is great when it works. But it’s just so damn intermittent!

    Really need to up their game in this area as Nvidia never have the same issues, and when they do they’ve been working on them for a damn sight longer than AMD.

    I had the same crap with Dying Light, purchased the game on launch day (late Feb). Game was unplayable until a few weeks ago. That means I had a game I couldn’t play for just over 2 months. This is starting to happen with a worrying number of new titles, what are AMD going to do about it is the question?

    As it stands I can’t recommend any high end GPU from AMD, until they sort these ongoing issues. If they need a project/program manager to help organise their internal teams they can send me an email, I’ll work for free (shares) for this!

      you do know that it’s up to the developers, right? AMD and NVidia merely optimizes the driver to give the games a boost.
      If there is a problem, always blame the developers for not doing it properly.

        You do know that the developers need access to the proprietary data from both GPU manufacturers in order to ensure that a game runs well on both sets of hardware, right? I mean, you don’t expect them to know the inner workings, which are not shared openly by either side, without getting assistance and feedback from said manufacturers, do you? Do you also read statements carefully before commenting, or do you just whip out the sarcasm bat willy nilly? I only ask because:

        “they gave AMD 20 keys for the game to be tested and have been inviting the company to work with them for years, and looking back at the company emails the last time they received a communication from AMD was October of last year.”

        and more importantly:

        “later on AMD’s Vice President announced through twitter that AMD is now working with Slightly Mad Studios to fix the performance issues.”

        You see how that works, Sparky? First AMD weren’t bothering, now they are. Isn’t that pretty much what Wayne was saying? That AMD half ass things? Or we could ignore the literal facts as presented by both Slightly Mad and AMD, and go with your nonsense idea that AMD is blameless and it’s all the devs fault.

    yeah fucking great, now they’ve released their 15.5 beta driver and the game still runs like garbage on my R9 290. I can’t even remember the last time I saw a game run below 30fps on my system. screw this shit, I’m done with AMD and I’m done with pcars.
