    If windows auto sets the refresh rate to something lower, then the game itself wont be able to run at its full refresh rate unless you disable Vsync.

    If you are certain everything is running ok, then I am not sure what is wrong. I would check everything if I was you. Check your CPU and GPU temps, check to make sure your ram is seated properly, check to make sure you GPU is seated properly, check all drivers. Go over your entire system with a fine toothed comb. Because with your CPU and GPU, you should be having no issues with this game.

    Ive been playing DR2 since it released, on 3 different systems.

    i7 6700k with a GTX 1080 (1080p high details and VR)
    a laptop with an i7 8750H with a GTX 1070 (laptops have lower clock speeds overall at 1080p high details and in VR)
    i7 10700k with an RTX 2070 super. (3440x1440 high details and VR)

    All with excellent FPS for me, in both pancake mode and in VR. So unless something is wrong with your hardware itself, or the OS installation or some other 3rd party software messing things up; I have no idea why you cant get it to run properly. Especially at 1080p.

    @PJTierney Do you have any idea's or any inside information specific to RTX 3000 and DR2????

    Thanks for you help. I’m almost certain my hardware is running fine. All the games I own from Red Dead Redemption 2 to F1 2020 all run exactly how they should on the relative settings.


    I thought someone may have known a common issue with these cards or 3rd party software?


    I will try a clean install of DR2 and disable some 3rd party software and see if that makes a difference.

    Lower your multisampling

    Turn off screen space reflections

    Set crowds to low

    Set all other options to "medium" or "replay only" and let me know how it goes.

    Also, make sure your displays refresh rate in windows is absolutely set to the refresh your monitor is capable off.

    Just tried all this and made no real difference FPS ranges from 45 at best to 18 at the worst points.


    You mention refresh rate, I’m playing on a 144hz monitor it’s all setup correctly but does this game have problems with this?

    What CPU are you using, as GPU is only half the story.

    I7-5930, neither the GPU or CPU are under heavy load.

    I’ve come over from Assetto Corsa Comprtizione (which has the exact same recommended specs) and I can run that on the highest settings at 90 FPS?

  4. Can’t get this game working with my rtx 3060ti at all. Struggling to get above 35 FPS on medium settings at 1080p single screen, with random spikes up to 90 FPS.


    Yes all drivers are up to date and my hardware runs all other games as it should, it’s only in Dirt Rally which I experience this.


    I've tried all the suggestions in the guide for low FPS on this forum but it has made minimal difference.

  5. Hi All


    I recently bought Dirt Rally 2.0 via the recent Humble Bundle. After installing today and looking at the range of DLC via the Steam store page I can see you can get the seasons DLC included with the GOTY Edition. Currently this edition is on sale on steam for £9.99 but I am unable to buy it because steam states I already own the game.


    I know I can buy the Year One Pass to obtain all this DLC but this is not on sale and double the price (£19.99). 


    Is this an oversight that the Year One Pass has not been put on sale or is there another way I can get the GOTY Edition?
