    P3d v4.3

    PBR would be fantastic, as implementation generally doesn't come with a huge performance hit (it's a different way for treating light).

    All good - thanks for sharing.

    Best CPU for Prepar3dv4.2

    This may be the CPU you're looking for... 😉 https://www.neowin.net/news/intel-teases-mammoth-single-socket-28-core-processor-for-pcs
  4. Hi Rob, I also read that there is an HDMI limitation where you can only do 4:4:4 chroma and 8 bit, or 4:2:2 and 10. This doesn't occur with displayport.

    Hotfix 2 for REX Skyforce 3D available

    I will say the performance of the SF weather engine is fantastic when compared to Active Sky or Opus (particularly when modelling dense / complex layers) - just wish the weather transitions could be smoothed... and that patching can be applied without redoing all settings.

    TrueSKY tech for P3D ?

    If we're going down the speculation path, I'd agree with this. The implementation and effects sure look impressive...

    ORBX EU Netherlands TrueEarth released

    Hi Gerard, I did get wide fps fluctuations when I tried that leg, so you may be on to something (a bit further north and I'm hitting EHAM traffic...). Other areas are quite stable, though I'm only running a single 43" 4K screen, with 8xMSAA + MFAA and settings dialed back just a tad from max - don't have your or Rob's monster systems 😉

    ORBX EU Netherlands TrueEarth released

    Just did a test and I'm getting about 35-55fps in the same areas (with AG buildings at dense and vegetation very dense). Did you want to post up your settings and specs?

    Fantastic shots Gerard. What are your cloud textures?

    So, do we like skyforce

    I saw a noticeable increase in performance using the SF weather engine with SF textures / models than when combining it with OPUS or AS. Try running that as a test case Michael...

    GTX 1080 worse than GTX960

    There is nothing wrong with your memory speed! Running two matched memory modules in DDR is 2 X 1066MHz = 2133Mhz...your timings do seem to show you're clocked at your XMP 1 profile.
  12. Perfect - thanks very much Nils. I'll give these a shot.

    GTX 1080 worse than GTX960

    Thanks Greg - you've got a solid system and those temps look great. To enable the cache driver on the EVO SSDs, install the Samsung Magician software and enable RAPID mode in the settings. And can you post a picture of the SPD tab in CPU-Z - that should list the XMP profile settings for your memory. And I also agree with Dave that the 4770 is a gem of a processor and is fantastically simple processor to overclock. You can try finding a relatively conservative overclock to set your clock at (4.2 -4.4) while still enabling Hyperthreading and XMP. You should then disable Intel Turbo Boost as that can be the source of stutters on some systems.

    GTX 1080 worse than GTX960

    Greg - two questions. Are you running P3D off an SSD (with the cache driver enabled) and have you been able to enable the XMP profile for your memory?
  15. Hi All, Been a while since I tried X-Plane and was wondering if there were any recommended RW weather and AI traffic addons? Cheers
