After SU5 I noticed an improvement in fps when flying in VR, I was also able to turn off motion reprojection which is a definite visual improvement.
But I’m still getting more stuttering than I would like and I still only have render scaling set at 60% in Openxr and 80% in MSFS, and other graphics settings set at medium with a few on high.
I’m happy with how it looks over all, but I would like to get smoother performance for a more immersive feeling, and to be able to increase render scaling for a clearer image in VR.
My system currently has 32gb RAM and an RTX3070, which should be adequate. But I think the i7 7700k CPU (oc to 4.8ghz) and Rog Strix Z270-H gaming motherboard might be holding it back.
I’ve been looking at replacements and have pretty much decided on an i9 10850k CPU (considerably cheaper than an i9 10900k with marginally less specs) and an Asus prime Z490-A motherboard.
Before I go ahead and click ‘purchase’ I’d like to know from other MSFS users whether this upgrade will give a substantial increase in performance over the i7 7700k and allow me to increase render scaling too. I checked some benchmark pages but didn’t find any info specific to MSFS.
