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.

F1 2012 acts up a little when overclocking is thrown into the mix, and often we can see quite a dip in performance. While you can see the Twin Frozr takes a bit of a dip, the MSI R9 290X 4GB Lightning OC dip isn't quite as large, and the lowest FPS we see is still a massive 156 FPS at 2560 x 1600.
