Project Cars 3 – Best Graphics Settings

Project Cars 3 best graphics settings – Project Car 3 has finally made its way to the launch day. A lot of people were waiting for this release after the huge success of Project Cars 2.

The game is fairly demanding and even with the latest drivers there is not much you can do if you have a low end gaming rig. So lets see if it is possible to make this game run for people with low end graphics cards by tweaking the in-game video or graphics settings.

It is always recommended to run a game on a medium end gaming rig if you want to find out the best combination of graphics settings for the game. There is no point in running benchmarks on gaming rigs with high or enthusiast level graphics cards. Because lets be honest, every single game will run smoothly without any issues on a RTX 2070 Super or a RX 5700 XT.

The test has been done both on Sunny weather conditions and Rainy weather conditions.

Project Cars 3 is quite demanding title. But the problem is the game doesn’t look that good. Considering the system requirements of the game you would expect that the game would look extremely realistic. Sadly, that is not the case here.

Apart from the cars and some other in-game stuff, everything else looks a but blurry and washed. I am pretty sure that it has something to do with the Anti-aliasing of the game.


That’s all folks!
