  1. Yeah, on the flipside you are now limited by vram which is untweakable. I'd rather fight fps than vram because you have a hard limit on vram, with fps you can always compromise.
  2. Ok guys, I might just try it out. Thanks for all the input.
  3. Thanks for the input Nyxx but I do believe you get better details with 4k textures on an actual 4k screen. You would have to zoom in an awful lot on an aircraft on a 1080p monitor to appreciate the difference between let's say 2048 textures and 4096 textures.
  4. Thanks for your input guys, no need for 4k textures on my 1080p monitor. Torsen, do report back on your flight, if you ctd or not 🙂
  5. So I really want to get the FlyhtemaddogX for P3Dv5 since I'm upgrading to that platform as well soon but when I read that the MINIMUM vram requirements are 8gb I quickly hesitated since I only have a GTX 1660 super 6gb card. It really is asking a lot from users to buy 8gb+ graphics cards just to use certain add-ons and I won't upgrade my gpu for at least a year or so. If one were to use the MaddogX in 1024 texture resolution with only active sky and not other add-ons, would it be possible to use a 6gb card only? Does anyone have experience with the MaddogX in P3Dv5 using only a 6gb card? Any feedback would be useful. Cheers!/Andreas
  6. This I think https://secure.simmarket.com/sim-bit-world-sibiu-international-airport-lrsb-p3d.phtml
  7. Thinking about getting the Flysimware Falcon 50 or their Lear rendition, which do you guys recommend
  8. W What I meant was that of course people will see performance improvements when they go from a totally add-on burdened old install of P3D to a completely fresh add-onless install. "Amazing! my sim runs so well withouth 876 add-ons installed to it!" lol!
  9. I love it when there's a new P3D release/update and everybody goes "ooo!" and "aaaa!" about the performance when running a clean P3D install without add-ons. Whilst on the subject of performance, water rendering has apparently been optimized a bit, according to the release notes, so that's good I guess.
  10. You don't have to do anything, Microsoft are already distributing software updates through Windows Update to mitigate these issues. If you're on Windows 7 or 10 you're probably already updated.
  11. Sign me up on that one too.
  12. Yes but it only seems to affect pre-Bulldozer (FX-series) CPU's, Athlons and Turions etc. You should have written "Meltdown updates bricking older generation AMD PC's!". Otherwise people might get it wrong and think it affects the newer AM4 platform which it doesn't.
  13. What do you mean "AMD PC's are being bricked by the updates."? Haven't heard anything about that. I've heard that people who are using old Athlon and Turion CPU's (from like 2008?) are having performance issues, sure but just as you I haven't noticed much of a difference either and I'm on a AM4 platform with an AMD Ryzen CPU.
  14. Good to know that I won't be upgrading my whole AMD platform to an Intel platform in the foreseeable future. I know AMD is affected too, to a certain degree but it's Intel who's playing a shady game right now. I have an Asus B350-F board so I don't have to upgrade that part, or any other, when I will upgrade to the next generation (Ryzen 2) of Zen-based CPU's. Feel sorry for Win7 users still sitting on Haswell, which are still relevant, or older platforms, they'll most likely have some sort of noticeable performance degradation.
  15. Easily the GPU. That Haswell i7 still has life in it but even something like a GTX 1060 6GB would be a noticeable improvement over that GTX 780.
