    Interesting that you have not yet installed SU5, yet describe it as a "crime". You refer to a "scarce few posters who claim graphics as good as they were before the update", implying that this group...

    Found the problem -- it was the "We Love VFR" addon files, which apparently are incompatible with the Update.

    I have found that this varies considerably with time of day. Generally contrast is best when the sun is high in the sky. I did find that some adjustment of nvidia settings also helped.
