Hi, I'm having some issues with F1 2010. At 1920x1080, I'm only getting ~30 fps, no matter what settings I use, and whether I overclock my CPU or not. I've already installed patch 1.01 and the problem persists. I wouldn't think that my frame rates should be this low because I am able to run everything on Ultra with DX11 on DiRT 2 at over 50 fps.
Here are my relevant specs:
Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 OC'ed to 2.8 GHz GTX 460 768 MB OC'ed to 825/1025 MHz 4 GB DDR2-800 RAM
I'm forced to play the game with DX9, but still I only get ~39 fps which I still think is low considering my card isn't all that bad. I've seen people with GTX 260s maxing it out at over 50 fps.

Your CPU is the more likely bottleneck. F1 2010 is apparently quite CPU intensive. Comparing it to DIRT 2 is also misleading; they are entirely different games.
I agree with Herr_Koos. The game is very much CPU intensive. it may require a quad core to run at 50 FPS or so while maxing it out.
