BREAKING NEWS, PROJECT CARS HAS GONE GOLD!!!

 

Project CARS is getting closer to its slated Mid-May release, and we’re getting more and more news announcements. The latest we’ve had from Slightly Mad Studios is the system requirements for the racing title. While Project CARS is one of the most visually impressive racing games, it looks like it will be able to be scaled quite nicely.

MINIMUM SPEC
CPU – 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400, 3.0 GHz AMD Phenom II X4 940
GRAPHICS – nVidia GTX 260, ATI Radeon HD 5770
MEMORY – 4Gb RAM, 1Gb VRAM

RECOMMENDED SPEC
CPU – 3.5 GHz Intel Core i7 3700, 4.0 GHz AMD FX-8350
GRAPHICS – nVidia GT600 series, AMD Radeon HD7000 series
MEMORY – 8Gb RAM, 2Gb VRAM

My system is almost identical to the “Recommended Spec” (I have the Nvidia GeForce GTX650ti BOOST [2GB model]), and I will say that it is a bit of a chore having Project CARS run everything on “High” on a single screen. Generally when I’m running on high, I’m at around 45-50 FPS. While that’s by no means unplayable, it is clearly not as smooth as 60+ FPS. I would say you would want, for Nvidia, a _60+ card for solid single screen performance.

I am planning on doing a preview video on Project CARS in the near future, so that will be one thing to look forward to seeing on the SRP YouTube Channel. What car/track would you like me to take a look at? Let us know in the comments!
