      Installed it, started SR22 in EGPA, clear skies, fuel 50%, all low to medium settings. I took off, trimmed neutral and for the first time in my MSFS I really enjoyed the plane flying by itself for an hour with only the smallest of fuel consumption trim adjustments and heading changes. Yours may vary but this is what I want in a sim, easy flying when I want it, fighting rough conditions when I choose it. Only my opinion, MSFS has definitely outclassed FSX in VFR. I'm happy to fly FMC long haul in my FSX Gold. At this point my system is still too limited to be able to judge complex aircraft systems. Waiting for GPU to drop even more, but for now I'm excited about the VFR stability that is provided. Big thanks to MS - Asobo - Azure.....

      "Waiting for GPU to drop even more"

      Good luck. Not sure where you are but here in the US the prices having only risen and availability gotten even smaller.

      That said, I didn't notice any performance increase but I did notice the increased thickness of cloud layer in real world weather. I have a 32" 4K monitor capped at 60FPS/60Hz (ultra quality, 100 draw distance).

      Of course you didn't you are at like max specs on your PC with that 3080Ti. That's like putting 100 octane in your Dodge Viper and saying, "I didn't see that big of an increase."

      I wasn't clear. So did you notice any FPS increase assuming you ran a similar flight? When I say I didn't notice any performance increase running a high end system, I mean I didn't notice any reduction in my GPU power or percentage use like I do when say I reduce quality settings. I run EVGA's performance monitor overlay and monitor those things for the slightest performance increase (or decrease in GPU strain at the same locked FPS) with every update. I noticed a FPS drop after WU6 but increase after WU7 which is where the FPS cap baseline measurement comes in handy.

      I miss the Viper!
