Hello all, first off - this is not in any way P3D bashing, I have always been a huge P3D fan and absolutely adored v4.5. But,with reluctance, I uninstalled and had a refund of P3D v5 due to the fact that, even with a GTX 1070 and 8GB of vRAM, I kew I wasn't going to make it. I hadn't even installed any "big guns" yet and I had multiple OOM which made my blood boil. And yet, I see some with 1060s saying it runs great etc etc.
So the favor I am asking is: can someone with a similar card try LatinVFR Miami with a GA aircraft and let me know the vRAM usage upon loading? I tried this with the RealAir Turbine Duke and the Alabeo M20 and the sim loaded with 6.2 vRAM usage out of a possible 6.7. Needless to say, I did not get off the ground.
I had turned off TrueSky and had most slider to the left in hopes that I could gradually move them a bit at a time. I also ran it in HD and not in 4K which I thought would have helped. After hours of experimenting, I realized that once I load PMDG and FSLabs, I would have zero chance.
I'm also hoping that LM will do some sort of memory optimization in the next few weeks that I can once again give it a whirl.
Hoping someone can run the simple test for me!
