Axel, are the things to look for after running a complex track (Spa67) with a high-load carset (Sports), that the CPU and GPU clocks stays at max and that the load for the CPU is somewhere around 50-60% and the GPU may go as high as 90% loading?

Yes the NVidia drivers are the problem when rendering text, there is a thread about this here at SRMZ allready
last night I used my old PC with the GTX 960 and was surprised to see that this is still a big problem when showing the newspaper after the race,
this took very long and was not shown correctly,
on my actual PC with the AMD RX 580 this is smooth without problem but it has strange surprising framedrops sometimes.

Nobody is perfect...


Text rendering is something I'm struggling with lately do you have a link to the thread. Or a solution, right now I've turned off incar chat but the join and leave messages still appear.

Some interesting tests here!

I will also try the Open Hardware Monitor program on my system when I have some time after I have finished to clone my whole system (all partitions and hard drives) to my new SSD hard drive. Another thing on my GPL to do list that is getting longer and longer. :whistling:

@Greg,
the optimum is the clock graphs showing a horizontal line at maximum, what means the "intel speed step" is not working and the GPU runs in 3D mode.

The load of the CPU + GPU varies, as it depends what is happening in game and OS, and how strong the CPU single core or GPU is.
What was strange with Ramoats CPU load was that all cores showed 50% max load...

Thanks Stefan for the links, :hat-tip:
I had reactivated my old pc as a backup with a fresh W7 install and had not installed the fix

I guess it might be worth restating, that this entire investigation, for my part, was that while using Stefans settings gave me 60FPS and good image quality, but when ever I used GPL's text (ie . FPS or original replay screen) it dragged my frame rate down to 10 to 20 fps instantly.. While not an issue while driving now that I use FRAPS, I lost the ability to have original replays ( letter box with data from GPL at the top, ie driver, drivers speed, etc) . I would have tried Stefans settings a long time ago but my mistake was changing graphics card settings, going in game and as soon as it started in the pits, I would hit alt-f to begin my run. When I saw the horrible fps I concluded I couldn't use those settings while all the time it was the fps text that was killing my frame rates and I didn't realize it.
