In F1 2012, players will feel the unparalleled thrill of becoming a FORMULA ONE driver with a host of new features, wide-ranging technical and gameplay advancements and extensive competitive and co-operative multiplayer components. F1 2012 will feature all of the official teams, drivers and circuits from the 2012 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, including the debut of the 2012 FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX at Austin, Texas, and the return of Germany's famous Hockenheim circuit to the calendar.

Like we've seen every time when we test CrossFire on the R series of cards: F1 2012 performance just plummets. Not only do we not have an increase, but the FPS drops to below 60 FPS at all resolutions. This hasn't always been an issue, and it's something we're really hoping is resolved in the future.
