I was one of the lucky few to get an RTX 3080 upon release and one thing I wanted to do to test and display performance was a huge grid of AI in rFactor 2 at a high quality track like Sebring or Nürburgring Nordschleife. But I couldn’t, because the AI couldn’t drive… Studio 397 today released a substantial update for their rFactor 2 title that fixed the AI issues many were facing with recent car GTE/GT3 releases, greatly improved the visuals of the Nordschleife release, and a number of other improvements.
