    it was over 12 months ago when i was getting sucked into all the hype surrounding project Scorpio but leading up to the release this week of the X1X i felt that all that early hype had kind of run out of steam... and if anything i had grown suspicious of MS's earlier claims.
    Anyway following the release and the very positive early reports (mainly from the rival station) i decided to get it and after a day of loading my games and knowing that AC had not released any additional patch to make the most of the new hardware i thought i would just try it out first to see if there was any difference before diving into the titles that had released a X1X enhancement... anyways i've just done a 5 lap race at Brands in the RSR and it was sooooo so smooth! i've only ever known AC on the xbox one and to be honest had no frame of reference regarding peoples gripes about fps but just now i was so impressed that i felt i should come on here and ask how others are getting on with it as there's been very little talk here so far?
    Because it runs so smooth everything else seems nicer too especially the other cars but maybe thats just the placebo effect after forking out a bit of my hard earned... Maybe but one things for sure its velvety smooth! and i loads up a whole lot quicker too!

    Every game runs so much beter on it, P Cars2 is a major improvement and looks so good with a solid frame rate. Forza 7 also looks better and runs smoother, also my TX wheel also seems to be smoother, Might be because the games are actually running at 60 fps instead of 40ish. I've also done a couple of races on AC, super smooth frame rate, game runs a lot better, but my god how dated does it look, this game needs a enhancement patch. This is how the xbone should run.

    not even been on the others yet and it was the hype around PC2 that forced my wallet in the first place!... done about 4 races now on AC and i couldn't be happier.
    Gotta feel for these game developers who know how good their products can be but can't really go around blaming the under powered systems of the bigger companies they have to play nice with.

    Better fps but as stated earlier, some kind of graphics patch would be nice.

    Well it looks dated because it is a 5 year old PC sim tbh, bumping up the settings from medium to high does not really increase the visual quality much. Maybe the most you can get out of the patch is better AA, reflections and shadows but the latter two are heavily CPU intensive in AC which have a bad effect on fps even on the PC platform, but since you can only run 16 AI on the consoles (correct me if I'm wrong) you probably do indeed have some overhead to do a couple minor tweaks without screwing the framerates again. A workaround on the PC side is that we do is to use custom weather and lighting mods, plus add further post processing outside of the game's engine like SFx or ReShade and get it to look good and up to date which is not the case on consoles. Don't get me wrong, I love taking AC screenshots and that's one of my favorite things to do in AC, yet I can't bear to look at the stock game because even on ultra it looks a bit meh... but with just a couple external tweaks it starts to look gorgeous for what it is.

    So yeah, TL;DR version - Most you can and should expect to get out of a patch is mild increase to AA/AF, reflections... even Forza and GT, especially PCars 2 have garbage shadow maps so I wouldn't expect AC to bump that up. Don't get the hopes up high for AC to magically turn into something other than an ugly duckling with a simple graphics patch. Maybe AC2 will be running a better graphics engine to keep up with the new titles. :p

    black cat country apart (which looks like a old set from star trek) i like how AC looks, whenever i come back to it it feels clean and uncluttered... more natural but in a passive wholistic kind of way.
    But i agree with the above in that if you were to look closely at the individual renderings they are a bit simplistic and dated.

    Wish every racing game could be optimized for that beautiful, 60fps-smooth experience.

    May I ask you a couple of questions?
    1. Does the performance take a big hit while using GFX mods like G&B Weather?
    2. How many PP effects (provided by Kunos) are available on PC?
    Thanks.

    Default weathers that come with the game -

    GBW mod comes with these weathers -

    Default PP filters are - b&w, blue steel, default, default bright, default dark, movie, natural, photographic, sepia, vintage

    The GBW mod has no performance hit atleast on my rig, given that mine is a bit of an overkill system for AC but tbh I don't think you'd even lose a frame or two at worst using those on a mid range PC. That said, stuff like ReShade and SFx can drop the framerates by 5 to 10 depending on how aggressive of a filter you run.

    I have a XoneX too and AC feels and looks much better now. Same with all other games i tried. The X is worth every cent. Kunos should bring a X Patch. Higher Resolution or something like that. Shouldnt be to much work i think.

    I second that. While AC may be missing some bells and whistles in the graphics area, somehow visibility is better in this game than in some of the more recent games, and it really helps with the driving.

    In addition, colors in AC look very natural compared to PC/PC2 (which often look over-saturated), and AC doesn't have the long-distance rendering anomalies that you see in PC2 (shimmering textures for example), and that can be very distracting.

    Overall, for me, the clean and crisp look of AC really helps with immersion and focusing on the driving.

    Having said that, I just played the Forza 7 demo on XBox One X, and I have to say the graphics look fabulous.

    Agreed... Pc2 is a patch or two from complete but boy is that game good on the X1X, it really ironed out most of the issues i was having.

    I know I can’t believe the difference it has made to p cars 2.
