GTX 1060 vs RX 480 Frame Time Analysis - Project CARS 2 Weather Effects [TC @ SILVERSTONE]

Weather and rain effects play an important role in every racing game - both with car handling and visuals. In this video we compare Project CARS 2 weather options: racing in heavy rain conditions (thunderstorm) versus clear, sunny racing day.

The rainy session through the iconic Silverstone track runs at half the frame rate compared to the sunny day setting - splashes, windscreen effects and reflections all add to the immersion but have a price when it comes to final performance. Both the GTX 1060 and RX 480 show similar performance loss on the soaking wet track.
