Can anyone tell me witch settings the CPU uses and witch the GPU uses in P3Dv5.2

The AVSIM Prepar3D guide goes through which settings are mainly CPU and which GPU, although it's a little outdated now it should still be useful. In general, lighting settings are more GPU intensive and world settings are a mixture. In my experience, the key CPU intensive settings are Autogen draw distance and Autogen density. In v5 you also need to take into account the amount of VRAM - I think this is largely down to texture resolution but I stand to be corrected as I'm still on v4.

Here is the link to the guide:

Would be great if Rob would make a small update of that part of the document... V5, DX12 and EA has probably change the balance between CPU/GPU...

Thanks

I agree, a refresh/update of the document would be helpful for the community I think.
