PC Performance Review at 1080p Ultra Settings on Ride

A PC build like this can expect to get an average of 83 FPS on High settings in Ride at 1080p. There may be some lower frame rates in some parts of the game, but we have chosen the components to get some solid frame rates. Increasing the quality in the game to Ultra, will see us still getting an FPS of 60.
