Problems with new GTX 1080Ti

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I just updated from my GTX980 to a Asus GTX1080Ti OC but since the upgrade I only get problems with P3D. I didn't change any settings but I keep getting the DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG error. In addition to that I get terrible FPS at any airport, less than what I had with the GTX980. 

My specs are:

i7 4790k at 4.7ghz

GTX1080Ti OC

16 Gb RAM 2133mhz

Any ideas what the problem might be?

 

Cheers

Alex

Did you uninstall the graphics driver, reboot and reinstall it using the "clean install" option after changing cards?

Know it can be a pain, but backing up/deleting the prepar3d.cfg file (and clearing the shaders) is part of my routine when updating GPU hardware. Had a bad experience with the first upgrade I did (and didn't clear out old settings).

And: never forget to delete the shaders after such an upgrade.

So I deleted the shaders and the .cfg. In addition I also reinstalled the graphics driver and from what I see now the problem is fixed .

Thank you all 😊
