Default Re: Official Flight Simulator X Thread

Never noticed a difference with different drivers... Somebody said the new 150 series drivers offload some work from the CPU, but I didn't notice that.

I installed SP1 and got up to a 100% increase in some cases!

I loaded a flight on the runway at Meigs in Chicago, and did before and after comparisons.

Before SP1: 16-23fps

After SP1: 31-36fps

Thats a 95% increase on the minimum value. I also loaded a flight over the UK.

Before SP1: 23-25fps

After SP1: 40-47fps

Thats an 75% increase on the minimum value. This is certainly the best patch I have ever seen for a game.
