The Test System

Before starting up The Crew and checking out its performance, let’s take a quick look at the test system.  The test system is running an Intel i5-4690K processor on a Gigabyte Z97M Gaming-5 motherboard, pushing the processor to 4.4GHz.  The Windows 8.1 operating system was installed on a Samsung Evo 750GB SSD.  For the memory, 16GB Kingston HyperX Blu DDR3 was installed.  To keep the system cool, a Corsair H105 liquid cooler was installed.  The video card used in the performance testing is an eVGA GTX 970 SC ACX 2.0 with the GeForce 344.75 WHQL drivers, which enable MFAA for select titles.

    I cant believe these idiots didn’t produce this game for ps3… I will never by an xbox and im not in the market for a ps4 yet.. Makes no sense ……

  • Cool game intro

    GTA 5 Remastered looks 10 times better than this unless i dont get rid of jagged roadstripes and flickering? MSAAx4 slows my comp down, and thats weird since i have a very good comp. Nvidia inspector and control panel doesnt seem to affect the game at all.

    Perfect CPU utilization. Perfect SLI scaling. Best looking 60fps game play I’ve seen in a long time, and this is coming from someone with a 120Hz monitor. I don’t even notice it’s capped to 60fps. It’s just unfortunate that there’s an artificial frame rate cap hardcover at 60. Even when using cheat engine to edit the frame rate value in memory, it doesn’t go above 60, showing it’s been hard coded in there for some reason.

    Beautiful game indeed. If only the AI in the game was realistic instead of being in godmode. Like the crown Victoria cop cars that accelerate several times faster than a pagani or Koenigsegg. And. When they brake they activate anchors or hooks into the ground and becoming completely stationary.

    There is potential though. Best looking and most fun PC racing game I’ve ever played.

      Funny you mention that about the cops, just a little while ago, I did a mission to evade them in Detroit and was near impossible to get away from them. Going 170mph, and using a full boost, didn’t get out of their radar…had to run them into buildings and things to get away, kind of funny really. And as for the AI, I noticed a flaw with that mission…the cops wouldn’t go off road…finally ended up going off road (on accident) and just kept going, noticed they stayed at the road LOL
