Thank you for the additional details. TAA80+SS60 is one of the 3 settings I’m retaining for my upcoming G2 recommendation topic. It is interesting my OXR “About” box is not displaying at the same location?! (mine is upper/right).
Looking at your settings, those you’ve set lower than my Index recommendation is wasted GPU possibility on the 2070S and you have more room with the 3070. I’ve spent countless hours validating up to what level and with which combinations to make sure my “non negotiable” ones are set to a minimum acceptable level while others have marginal impact whether low or high. In particular, you might want to change a few and compare (and let me know!): Aniso 8x (min req.) / Tex Synth. MED / Waves MED / Terr. Shadows 256 / Windshield HIGH. I believe you might even raise Shadow Maps to 1536 with the 3070 and don’t feel the difference.
It you have ample CPU avail you might really want to compare Glass Ref. Rate. to HIIGH as this eliminates stuttering induced by the EFIS (at additional CPU and GPU cost though) and if you do, you might want to lower clouds to MED or HIGH then. This could be the tradeoff in your overall settings you can balance whether flying GA or Airliner for example.
NB: Clouds impact depends only on the volumetric clouds level of detail, not if they are visible, in most cases. This is because their voxels are computed whether there is something visible or not in any case (unlike what you might be used to with FSX or XP11). It is possible when set to ULTRA there are additional computations only if they are visible but at MED and even HIGH I don’t see any difference in fps whether for example selecting clear sky or scattered clouds preset!
PS: I’ve forgotten to ask you: don’t you see any deformation when turning your head left to right? It does pincushion distortion with my system if using any OXR Reproj. settings and Scale between 50 and 60 included with OXR Preview (v105). Besides, if you disable OXR Reproj. you might immediately notice much sharper and more detailed image in the headset.
