  1. Every is a critic I suppose. I watch his videos regularly and I don’t see any of the things you describe here. Frankly, I’m grateful for the content he creates.
  2. It’s not just stutters but can also be a reduction in frame rate. A great way to check for this issue is to pan the camera around 360 degrees horizontally and then do another 360 degree rotation. If this is not fluid then VRAM might be an issue. Of course there might also be a complex object in view, so I would also look at the VRAM amount to ensure that stutters are related to the stutters.
  3. Are you using DX12? I assume so, since you probably want to make use of the “Frame Generation” feature unique to 40xx cards, but asking just in case. Dx12 is known to use more VRAM and (according to my limited knowledge) the VRAM management is up the GPU, and what I have experienced with my 4070Ti (which only has 12 GB of VRAM) is that Dx12 seems to be more VRAM hungry.
  4. I have and I can assure you the visual clarity is amazing 😂
  5. For what it’s worth: I have the same issue, sometimes more frequently, some times less frequently. I raised it in Navigraph’s support forum and was told that this shouldn’t happen, but ultimately no resolution was reached.
  6. Good choice. I don’t think you can go wrong with the 7800x3d. I’d recommend to pair it with 6000Mhz RAM. Seems to be the sweet spot got this platform.
  7. The iGPU is actually only used to render the Fenix gauges (ND, PFD, MCDU). I have a single monitor connected. In essence, the iGPU frees up some resources on the dedicated graphics card, but this is a unique feature that is (afaik) only available on the Fenix A320. Regarding the 7800x3d vs 7900x3d: the former has two more CPU cores available for use by MSFS (as the 7900x3d parks half the cores during gaming) but as you pointed out, the frequency is higher. I haven’t compared the two, but I saw some benchmarks that showed a modest speed advantage for the 7900x3d, while others showed the opposite. Hard to say, and might depend on the specific situation and used apps. I chose the 7900x3d purely because I got it for a good price (probably because most reviewers hated it 🙂 ). I’m not quite sure where my bottleneck is now, but I think I’m mainly main-thread limited.
  8. I have just gone from 5800x3d to a 7900x3d, mainly because I got the chip at a very good price on Prime Day. I’m quite happy with the results and would estimate a 15 to 20% increase in frame rate and improvement in overall smoothness. Most importantly (and the main reason I did this) performance in the Fenix A320 has significantly improved, as I am using the integrated the AMD graphics chip render the Fenix displays. I’m running the Fenix at high quality and am getting the same performance as the PMDG 737. Note though that I am using PBO for the 7900x3d (which the 5800x3d is not capable of) and I’m at 1440p, not 4K. I also invested in fast RAM (6000Mhz). Graphics card is a 4070 Ti.
  9. Hi Ken (I assume), I’m not sure if the options described here are actually available on your specific graphics card generation, but it doesn’t hurt to try out a few different settings. Just take note of your original settings so you can switch back.
  10. I’m the exact same boat here and while I think it’s a great card which delivered amazing performance, I do agree that the VRAM limit is a problem in detailed airports with AI. I’m actually contemplating selling the card and going with the 4080 or perhaps even the 4090 (painful price point though!). For now I’m just waiting to see if there is anything to the rumours that higher VRAM cards (4080Ti or Super) are inbound. That said, if you are happy avoiding complex 3rd party airports then I think the 4070ti is probably a good choice when considering value for money.
  11. I had that exact combination and ran it on a 4K TV to test. Worked well, but will need to drop settings from Ultra.
  12. Same here. Complained multiple times in their forum but this is still not resolved. I have it happen mid flight sometimes. Very frustrating.
  13. Looking forward to giving this a try and crossing my fingers for a 787-9 mod to complete the set.
  14. You might, but don’t speak for the rest of us. The current gen of Flightsim has been the best value for money I have had in a software purchase (commercial or gaming). why wouldn’t they charge full price for the next installment?
