    After latest patch, graphics are blocky, anyone else notice this?

    After the latest patch, graphics are blockier, anyone else notice this? I run on max settings and thought my eyes were getting worse or something, or maybe too many beers, but something is really wrong. In cockpit view, the focus is off when viewing afar at Imola. It kinda acts like the helmet cam and yes i know the difference. I love this game with 125 hrs in just 6.5 months and this is the real issue that I've questioned. Any thoughts?

    What you mean with blockier? Would you mind to share some pictures?

    Did you checked your graphic configurations after the patch?

    I have, multiple times since the patch. I readjusted to highest (ultra) in all setings. Don't get me wrong, it's still looks good, but not as great as before the patch. And I'm just talking about looking into the distance while driving has gotten worse

    Have you changed the drivers? (guess not)

    I use to race at Imola quite a lot. Didn't see anything wrong. Maybe, just maybe, I think the AA filters are a little bit worse after the patch.

    Yes, all my drivers are updated and pc's working fine. And yes, I agree that the AA filters seem a little bit worse after the patch and that's with DS16X AA setting.

    Could you post some pictures that show the objects that have become worse in your opinion?

    Is it possible you're running a lower resolution? Mine was dropped down to 720p after the previous update.

    After some more hours on Imola, I've discovered that it's just one of those more resource intensive tracks. I've tried to install Shadowplay to record a video, but that made it undrivable with the drop in FPS, especially with 24 cars on the track. I'm going to have to compromise on some settings with certain tracks, even in the dry

    Begin with turning down:

    - reflections
    - Environment Map
    - shadows

    Okay, so after 3 more hours spent on a race and then experimenting afterwards on settings, this is what I've come up with as my optimal settings:

    Resolution: 1920x1080 59 Hz
    Texture Resolution: High
    Texture Filtering Anisotroptic 16x
    V-Sync No
    Anti-Aliasing DS9X
    FXAA - Off
    SMAA - Off
    Reflections - High
    Environment Map - Low
    Car Detail - High
    Track Detail - High
    Shadow Detail - Medium
    Enhanced Mirror - Yes
    Motion Blur - High
    Render Frames Ahead - 4
    Detailed Grass - Medium
    Particle Level - Medium
    Particle Density - Medium
    Stretched Headlight Reflections: Yes

    Now I'm also aware that if I go out on the track as the only car for hotlaps, sure I can put everything on ultra settings. But I always prefer to have 23 other cars out on the track with me to push me
