Evaluation Method

We evaluate what the card being evaluated can supply us in terms of a playable gaming experience while supplying the best culmination of resolution and "eye candy" graphical settings. We focus on quality and immersion of the gameplay experience rather than how many frames per second the card can get in a canned benchmark or prerecorded timedemo situation that often do not represent real gameplay like you would experience at home. Then we will follow with apples-to-apples testing in with minimum, maximum, and average framerates.

Drivers

It seems that no newer drivers from AMD or NVIDIA have been released since the game was released and we performed our preview. The latest driver we can use from AMD is AMD Adrenalin 18.6.1. This is the same driver we used in the preview, nothing newer has been released yet.

The NVIDIA "Game Ready" driver for The Crew 2 is version GeForce 398.36. This driver according to NVIDIA: "Provides the optimal gaming experience for The Crew 2." This is the same driver we used in our preview, nothing newer has been released.
