Default FSX SP1 is Live!

FSX Service Pack 1 is now Live for downlaoding!

Check the fsinsider website at http://www.fsinsider.com

This update gives an estimated performance boost of 20-40%, and adds FULL support for muticore, the more cores the better. Personally I am seeing as much as a 75%-95% increase on minimum frate rates.

Enjoy.

Sounds good. When I upgrade to a q6600 when the prices drop I would hope my performance would be vastly increased.

Man, even Microsoft's games are unusable until they've gotten a service pack or two?

What is the world coming to

DX10 will come out this fall some time, righ before the expansion pack. The expansion will focus on Air Racing, and will include a 4,000hp P-51 Mustang and a Reno Air Races course.

The DX10 update will add enhanced visuals and increased efficiency.

Thanks for the heads up !
