We can confirm that the game runs better with this latest update. That is without the game’s Ray Tracing effects. With RT, the game still drops below 60fps on our Intel Core i9 9900K. However, these drops are not as low as before, so that’s at least good news. Furthermore, the game is really smooth now without its RT effects, even when driving throughout the city. So, great news for those that are still playing this game!
