  1. The four pin is optional yes, and dare I say never used in any case. You are fine with your connections.
  2. Wiggle your headphone pin a bit where it goes into the motherboard / pc. Sometimes I have to pull the pin out ever so slightly due to bad connection, which makes sound go away. Maybe try it?
  3. Your 6800xt will run like a champ. Its faster than the 2080ti.
  4. You can attend to all above suggestions, its definitely one or a combination of all mentioned. One critical aspect also is video memory overheating on the 3080, but especially on 3090. One NEEDS a very good airflow case for these cards to keep the video memory (GDDR6X) cooled.
  5. Remember to deactivate all other anti aliasing when trying SMAA.
  6. Fredric, If you are running reshade, did you try with SMAA activate in your reshade profile? Its a similiar technique as FXAA as it is also a shader based anti aliasing. Another thing which a lot of users of Ryzen platforms never do: Did you download and install the latest AMD chipset drivers? Without these drivers installed, some things can go south even on the graphics side.
  7. Hi Fredric. Always go back to everything default in such a situation as you are in now. Default config (delete the old, let p3d create new), and default nvidia control panel settings. What I do is simple, and get beautiful image: I switch off all anti aliasing in p3d, and switch on FXAA ONLY in nvidia control panel for that application. Then set image sharpening to 40, max 50. Thats it. Try it, it should work for you? Regards
  8. I agree fully. I despise these computer screens on the panel of a plane, give me steam gauges yes. And... I want to pilot a plane. Fly it. Experience the scenery while doing it, not get bogged down in pressing buttons and turning dials the whole way. This will suit me very well. VirtualCol has always focussed on some niche planes that NO ONE else is doing. And some shapely ones at that. The Beech 99 in terms of shape is surely a looker, and I like flying good looking planes. For me some of the default planes in MSFS is butt ugly.
  9. Robert, your Duke is literally the only plane I think of when flying MSFS, wishing I was in that cockpit. I would pay serious money for a compatible version. No way to convince you?
  10. AMD is also releasing the new Radeon RX6000 series next week. And with more Vram than NVidia. Wait for them if you can.
  11. Black screen problems have been reported with some of the latest Nvidia drivers, so most probably not the sim causing it? Have you installed the latest 456.71 WHQL driver?
  12. Yes, correct. I mean performance improvement in terms of load spreading over more cores, which should lead to a smoother experience. I should've been clearer.
  13. Yes, DirectX 11 is not the best API to spread workload across cores and threads, which MSFS uses at the moment. The better API's for utilization of more cores and threads is DirectX 12 and Vulkan. So, the situation with MSFS will only really change when it is move onto DirectX 12. That is why XP11 also runs bit smoother, as it is running on Vulkan. No fiddling on earth is going to make a major difference with MSFS at present unfortunately. I believe the biggest jump in performance for MSFS will come when they move it to DirectX 12, hopefully sooner than later.
  14. Yes, always a good exercise, which will get your gamma, brightness and contrast more in line. Easiest is to type "calibrate" into your search on your taskbar, click on "Calibrate your display", follow the steps right through, and your done. Thereafter make sure you load the colour profile that was saved after this exercise as your default, and your set. It does make a nice difference to your graphics.
