    It's Black Friday and I'm in the market for a new graphics card. I have a NVidia GE Force GTX960 2gb gddr5 card now but I'm tired of the fps drop coming out of turn 4 on a lot of the newer tracks. Any suggestions? I've read here in the forums that the Radeon cards eliminate the fps drops. True?

    i5-6600K
    Asus Z170 pro gaming motherboard
    32gb gskill ripjaws

    Should have added that all the car have been compressed using winmip2.

    Yes AMD does a better job with legacy drivers essentially. I run an R9 390. I dont have any of the issue I had when I tried the 970 or the 1070. I gave both a spin. Went back to my AMD cards both times. 7870 at the time when I tried the 970 GTX, and I opted to get a R9 390 to replace that. Tried the 1070 FTW by EVGA same issues. So it went back. If I buy another card it would be AMD hands down. They have never let me down on compatibility for this game.

    I would recommend and RX 580 or 480. They are about equivalent to my R9 390 in performance terms

    Thank you Alan. That's what I thought I had read but wanted to make sure before I spent the money. The RX580 will work with my Z170 motherboard, right?

    Perfect. I'll wait until Monday and see if the price drops any for Cyber Monday. Alan I really appreciate your help. Hopefully my FPS drops will be over soon.

    Got the AMD card on Friday. All of my FPS drops are a thing of the past. It's nice to run any track without any problems.
