    Well, I tried it and definitely get worse performance in Gen 2 mode vs Gen 3 mode:

    - Gen 2: 54 min to 80 max fps, with frequent drops in the mid 50s and very pronounced stutter all around.
    - Gen 3: 62 min to 101 max fps and a lot less stutter (I always suffer some micro-stutter in R3E unless I enable Vsync, had it with my 970, 1070 and now my 1080...).

    In both modes PCI-E Link State Power Management was disabled, and GPU loads were similar in both modes. My GPU did seem to run a couple degrees hotter in Gen 2 mode though :confused:

    Anyway, Gen 3 mode it is for me.

    Hey, no need to feel sorry for me: I'm happily racing 55 AI in downsampled 4K resolution at 60fps ;)
    If the Gen 2 thing works for you guys, I'm glad for you :)

    I tried racing with AI today. Here is what I found.

    Triple screen, with ryzen 3 1300x OC 3.8 ghz, geforce 1080 ti.

    With everything maxed out.

    No AI:
    Cpu usage: 30-40%
    Gpu usage: 100%
    Fps > 120

    With 20 AI
    cpu usage 70-80%
    Gpu usage: 55%
    Fps < 60

    If I gradually remove AI, cpu usage goes down and Fps and Gpu usage goes up. If I stay at the start line and let all the AI's drive away Fps and Gpu usage are still low. The cpu is struggling even though it says 70-80% cpu usage.

    A question to the R3E beta users: does disable the replay recording improve the performances?

    I doubt this makes any noteable difference, but you can try yourself by using the command line parameter -disableReplay in Steam.

    This is typical for systems where an application doesn't leverage all cores. You should see in per-core utilization that some are maxed out.

    The game probably uses up to 2 cores, the gpu driver another one, meaning you are at 3/4 cores hence the percentage you see.

    If you are low on memory it might improve a bit on performance and especially would prevent you from crashes. That was the main reason for the introduction of the option to disable the replays.

    If I remember right, since the last Update there is an option to disable the replays in game now. So there is no need for the Launch-Parameter, but I guess it would still work.
