Project CARS is scheduled to be officially released on May 7 2015, and it’s expected to push the limits of racing game. The game is realistic on every aspect, from the physics of driving, to the level of details and realism of the graphics and environmental details. Combining this level of details and realism with a 4K display, gives an astonish racing game experience, closer to real life than any other racing game.
However, to be able to play the game in 4K resolution you would need the computer version of the game and a good graphic card. So to have a better idea of what graphic card gives the best performance for Project CARS in 4K, we have collected a series of benchmark results, from GameGPU.ru and shown on the next table.
|Graphic Card||Min FPS||Average FPS||Price|
|2 GTX 980 SLI||45||55|
|2 GTX 970 SLI||38||44||($214 to $799 US)|
|Radeon R9 295X2||35||41|
|GTX Titan X||35||39||($0 to $8629 US)|
|2 GTX 780 TI SLI||33||40|
|2 GTX 780 SLI||29||34|
|GTX 980||27||30||($319 to $2699 US)|
|Radeon HD 7990||24||28|
|GeForce GTX 970||23||25||($214 to $799 US)|
|Radeon R9 290X||21||24||($0 to $8629 US)|
So as you can see the best performance is obtained using two cards in SLI and the two GeForce GTX 980 in SLI and two GeForce GTX 970 in SLI are a good choice, however two Geforce GTX 780 Ti and even two Geforce GTX 780 in SLI, can be sufficient to play the game in 4K with some tweaks in the game settings. If you want to use a single video card, then the Radeon R9 295X2 or the GTX Titan X can handle the game in 4K and 30 fps, or as a minimum a single GTX 780 can achieve 4K at 30 fps with some graphic tweaks.
If you don’t have a 4K display or the minimum requirement to play the game in 4K resolution, then you can always play the game in 1080p, and we recommend a video card superior to the Radeon R9 280X, or the GeForce GTX 780 to play at 30 FPS with maximum quality settings. To play in 1080p at 60 fps however, we recommend two Geforce GTX 780 or the Geforce GTX 780 Ti in SLI, can achieve this. Nevertheless the Radeon HD 7990 or the GeForce GTX 980 video cards can be good to play 1080p and 60 fps with some tweaks in the graphic options.
