Project Cars Not Sabotaged But AMD are Working to Fix Performance Issues
Gareth Andrews / 1 year ago
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.
Great chat with Ian, we love @projectcarsgame and are working with them now. Update to follow shortly, rest assured AMD on Project Cars.

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?
