Hi @HenpeckedDoor83,
Can you check this topic to see if it’s also the same issue as yours?
If it is, would you let me know? We only want one bug report/issue per topic as we use this to bring up to the developers. Bugs & Issues has vote counts and if a duplicate is created it spreads those counts.

Thank you!

Okay, this topic does match my case. However it is all regarding Nvidia cards. I run AMD Radeon cards. They don’t use G-Sync. But while exploring down that path that they used. I found in the AMD Radeon software Global and Game settings for V-Sync which have always been set at AMD optimized. But low and behold, after Update 3 it no longer works set like that. After disabling V-Sync by changing from AMD optimized to Off in the AMD game setting page for MSFS2020. Everything works fine again. So share this fix with all the AMD Users.
