F1 2015 launches without SLI support, isn't as broken as Arkham Knight

F1 2015 experiencing various performance issues on PC, doesn't include SLI support at launch

The launch of F1 2015 hasn't been perfect, with some users reporting performance issues on the PC version of the game. There's no support for NVIDIA's multi-GPU SLI technology. We've seen the game running on PC at 1080p 60FPS, where it looked quite good.

Some users were quick enough to have the day-one patch rolled out to them, but Codemasters' Community Manager took to Reddit to write: "Hey everyone, just wanted to hop in and say we're aware of a lot of the issues users are facing at the moment and the team are working on getting a lot of these bugs squashed as fast as possible. As always we really do appreciate your feedback and patience with us while we get these sorted".

The day-one update for F1 2015 has fixed up a bunch of parts of the game:

  • Flashback and the Instant Replay Flashback causes game to crash to desktop
  • Instant Replay - The game is crashing when entering an instant replay in all game modes
  • Backing out from a lobby in which you were a Client and Hosting a new Lobby will result in you not having Host Options for your new Lobby
  • Fuel info resets every time you cross the start/finish line
  • Out of box settings appear to be too high on onboard Intel GPUs
  • Graphics options do not save in certain situations
  • When a player collides before or after resetting to track, they get disqualified.
  • Clipping on the nose camera on the Manor car
  • Game crashes after running benchmark
  • Tyre wear carries over from short qualifying to race between intermediate & option tyres
  • Hang occurs when host backs out of Custom Lobby just before countdown finishes and loading begins.
  • Multiplayer qualifying result inconsistent across players
  • Backing out of a Lobby on 0 seconds of the countdown timer can result in a Hang if the player then creates and leaves a Custom Session.
  • Host will perpetually load after quitting game via front end after getting terminal damage in multiple races in custom lobby.
