I have an AMD 5800x/6700xt with 32GB. So far I think this has been a solid update.
-Smooth performance at big airports and in general
-Scenery popin’s are gone
-Bonus → VRAM usage increases with higher level of detail and draw distance
For test I took off to the north from YBCG. I did 3 tests and witnessed the VRAM after about 2 minutes after takeoff:
Terrain LOD (2), Objects LOD (2) - VRAM ~7GB
Terrain LOD (4), Objects LOD (5.5) - VRAM ~7.7GB
Terrain LOD (6.5), Objects LOD (5.5) - VRAM ~8.5GB
VRAM increased each time, photogrammetry seemed to improve and the draw distance went further out. That’s pretty much what you want to see happen. On the third test trees were drawn really far out.
We still have the blinding white light at times. I hope the bloom setting can be made into a slider 0-100%. Then that effect can be turned down.
