Ryzen, Xeon, Threadripper etc

Recommended Posts

Hi

Will Dirt Rally 2.0 work with logical core counts over 20? Dirt Rally was never fixed (just tried it now) and I've read online that Dirt 4.0 had the same issue. 

It would be nice to be able to play your games on PCs with high core counts without having to use BIOS or Ryzen Master to disable cores.

Thanks,

Nick

Can you explain what happens on the high core systems? Just wondering because I recently upgraded to a 9900k (8 cores + hyperthreading = 16 threads.)

Basically the old problem that the game just runs on 4 cores or something like that. Some older games like Flight Simulator only use Core 0 for example. That just makes the game run slower (depending on the situation) and it doesn't take full advantage of the CPU's capabilities.

No it isn't slow running. They crash with no report after the initial splash screen on both my dual Xeon (40 logical cores) and my threadripper system (32 logical cores). I found when Dirt Rally came out that if I disable more than half my cores then it would run fine on my dual xeon. My son was wanting to play on his threadripper (32 logical cores) system and I am having to disable down to 8 logical cores to get it to run on that.

I knew that if I posted it here I'd get lots of fan boys going "runs fine for me" but what I really want is for the devs to test on high core count PCs. I reported this on these forums years ago and nothing ever got fixed. I think that if codemasters don't want to address this they should at least be honest and post maximum specs as well as minimum specs. I'd like to buy their awesome games though but not if I have to work around this.

Hey OP, just a quick one on this: the crash you're referring to was fixed for DiRT 4 in 2017, and that fix will also be in DiRT Rally 2.0. 🙂
