Does Windows 10 2004 update really give you 1GB of VRAM back

Recommended Posts

Okay thanks for the advice. In that case I think I'll just wait. But I thought the insider build is basically RTM and it's just waiting for a public release.

It is RTM, has been for a while. So what you are receiving via the insider preview today, is the same build they will roll out to the public, then any subsequent day 1 patching, everyone will be receiving. I wouldn't worry about it being some unstable test build.

You can also leave the insider preview immediately, never receive any additional insider updates and stay on 2004. Then come official release, you are effectively back on the 'main branch' along with everyone else.

Where can I download the RTM version of 2004 iso? Can I use the iso to do an upgrade? Not clean install. I don't want to reinstall all my apps and flightsim and 3rd party add-ons all over again.

If you signed up to be an insider (how-to here), you can download the insider ISOs here; https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windowsinsiderpreviewadvanced

Not sure if you can upgrade from the ISO, haven't tried that.

Which one is the Pro edition, and not sure what FAST and SLOW is.

That's the 'ring' of the insider build, fast is where they push a lot of early and potentially unstable updates. You want "Slow" for the RTM (RTM is build 19041)

And you choose Windows version during installation, Pro, Home, etc. should all be part of the ISO.

Quick reminder to those upgrading: Your GTN's from F1 and RXP will work on snail speed after the update. The 6.62 Trainer doesn't like Win 10 2004, at least he didn't on my system. Make sure to be able to do a roll-back.

I'm not seeing any impact on the RXP GTN 750 in Win 10 2004. Maybe you should  try a reinstall of the GTN and also ask about the issue on the RXP support forum.

If it's working for you great. My issue had by no means anything to do with the RXP or F1 software. The trainer itself lagged heavily after the upgrade to 2004. It may well be a coincidence and related to something on my systems and it's encouraging that you do not have any issues. I deleted and reinstalled the trainer a couple of times but this did not help. For now, I am staying with the older 1903/1909 version.

Yep, on my 2080Ti, went from 9.2 to 10.1 GB.  Nice having the extra headroom with all the addons starting to show up.
