        You've got a beefier card than me but any chance of a screenshot of the settings you are using? Still runs a bit poo for me.

        I made sure to turn off detailed grass.

              Switching reflections to low seems to have a big impact. an extra 15-20FPS for me.

              Project cars feels so much better at greater than 60fps.

              Real pita that u have to exit and restart to apply changes each time.

                        That would be good. I've installed now, I might give PC a quick lap or two, see if there's any improvements.

                          for sure it would, a free 10% boost (give or take across the titles) would be lovely

                              If you have recently upgraded to Windows 10 and had a few errors during installation of the AMD driver, try DDU. Display Driver Uninstaller.

                              http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/...-download.html

                              This worked for me, removed all traces of the old driver and allowed the new driver to be installed without error. Also CCC now opens as it should for me.
