Threshold video: Graphics and performance

Interesting that he turned the weather into stormy and didn't really got an fps hit..! Wow!

I've mentioned this before, how the sim does not necessarily respond to settings changes in a way that's all that similar to what we are accustomed to, making it perhaps a bit confusing to those who don't internally assimilate that fact while attempting to tweak performance.

All my digits are crossed that their final pass on the beta plus an Nvidia driver update will squeeze just a bit more out of the sim for the sake of my poor old 1070 OC card.

Shows how much more advanced this sim is in terms of utilizing modern pc power.

I would be curious to see a more modern processor used with that same setup and see if anything changes.  Maybe the GPU works harder when you have an outdated processor.  IDK.  Enlighten me.  His graphics look great.

Hmm pretty surprised with those frames he wasn't running at 4K.

I'm Basing this on seeing other examples of 2080TI's hitting @4k 45-60 frames. I can only assume the render scaling and Terrain level of detail levels were toned down on those - good Video though.

 

So I'm sticking to plan A then - 3080Ti in Sept.

 

plus a 2TB Sabrent Rocket Nvme PCIe 4.0 M.2 drive Q4 2020

That will make for one outstanding setup.

So, when msfs uses all cores, could that be a tendency that the AMD 3900X might be better cpu because of more cores than intels i9 10900?

I’m glad he said get a G-sync monitor. This would also be my number 1 advice. No more locking at 30hz and 30frames etc. That’s Stone Age stuff that should be left in the past. 
 

Does anyone know how hyper threading affects the new sim? On or off?

I know that one of the xplane devs said that the AMD has a higher buffer/cache (probably not the correct technical term.) that really helps with the modern stuff, and actually helped with vulkan in xplane. I wonder if that is also the case with MSFS.

One thing is for certain ... the graphics card will be fully utilized, a constant 98% load was shown in other videos too.

Get yourself the biggest video card you can afford and prepare for a lot of fan noise ... and hopefully no smoke. Oh, and prepare for a higher electricity bill too. 🙂

I've been thinking of getting an AMD setup. I'm currently looking at Ryzen 7 3800X, 32GB ram, with my GTX 1080. The PC I'm building will come in at around $1134.92

That with liquid cooler for the processor, power supply, windows 10 ect.

I've got the 1080, so no need to buy another card at the moment.

It’s the opposite. If your CPU is the bottleneck, it can’t send commands to the GPU fast enough to keep it busy.
