Assetto Corsa Competizione Patch 1.8 adds support for AMD FSR, NVIDIA DLSS & TAA Gen5

KUNOS Simulazioni has released a brand new update for Assetto Corsa Competizione. According to the team, Patch 1.8 updates the game to Unreal Engine version 4.26.2, and adds support for AMD FSR, NVIDIA DLSS and TAA Gen5.

Moreover, Update 1.8 brings numerous graphical improvements. For instance, it updates global lighting and exposure on all tracks to follow Unreal Engine version changes. It also updates visual tonemapper presets to follow Unreal Engine version changes. Furthermore, it improves car spray effect, especially in light/medium wetness situations, raindrop effect rendering logic to follow the updated spray effect, and rainfall shader appearance in external cameras.

Update 1.8 also comes with some physics engine optimizations to its variable component tick frequency. As such, there is smoother single-player performance with high number of AI. There are also fewer spikes due to overloading single cores on heavy calculations (such as simultaneous collisions).

Surprisingly enough, KUNOS Simulazioni hasn’t added to the game yet the Ray Tracing effects it showcased back in 2019.

As always, Steam will download this patch the next time you launch its client. Below you can also find its complete changelog.
