Why Do You Need a GTX 1080?

NVIDIA GTX 1080 Founders Edition

The steep recommended hardware is most likely due to the new EGO engine which requires DirectX 12. While the minimum is often for running the game at 720p at minimum settings, the recommended settings is for optimal gameplay for either 1080p at 60fps.

Considering the space requirement also needs at least 100GB, we can expect high-resolution textures which need a lot of VRAM. Interestingly, F1 2019 only recommends at least a GTX 1660 Ti, although it recommends an RX 590 equivalent.

This suggests that GRID will most likely have NVIDIA-exclusive features such as RTX enhancements. After all, NVIDIA has opened up these features to non-RTX video cards.

Codemasters also plans to release a version of the game on the Nintendo Switch. See the trailer for that below:
