Hi @CptLucky8, I know you are still experimenting with things post update, but I would love to hear your thoughts on some things regarding SU5 & the follow-up patch. My system is very close to yours, except that I have a 2080S.
I’m one of the folks who sat back and wondered why so many people had issues in VR pre-SU5. Using many of your suggestions and other random tweaks I had a great balance of performance and excellent visuals. Things looked crisp, cockpit was very readable, and the sense of immersion was excellent in part due to the quality of reflections in the cockpit, etc.
Post SU5 my experience has been the opposite. There was perhaps a minor performance upgrade, but the visuals took a huge hit. And I am ignoring the LOD pop-in issues, which don’t bother me too much at 200. My real problem is just how blurry and washed out everything is. Not just the terribly aliased menus, but the entire sim. It also seems that the reflections in windows have been degraded to where they barely exist even on ultra.
The only way that I can come close to the image quality that I had before the update is to run at TAA 100% and SS 200+. This is somewhat playable, however a net performance decrease. I actually think it is slightly better with motion smoothing turned off, but still worse than pre-SU5.
Could you possibly give an update on your experiences with the Index post SU5, even if it is just some brief highlights? I am so shocked by the differences I see that I would love to know what your thoughts are. I read posts from others who seem to agree with me, but some who don’t seem to see the same downgrades. But I am especially interested in what you have to say given that you have a similar system to mine, AND you are our most trusted Good Captain, who has never lead us astray!
