I had very little faith that this update would fix the longstanding CTD issue that the AMD 5000 and 6000 series owners have had with Reverb G2. Prior to this update, I have not been able to finish a leg of bush trip without crashing to desktop. I just tested the new SU5 and too my surprise, I finished a 90 minute flight without a CTD. This is the first time in 8 months that I feel like flying again.
I am hoping this is not one of those random times that the sim decided to play nice, but am planning to do a whole bunch of testing with different settings in the next few days.
What’s noticeable is that memory footprint has been halved. It now uses no more than 4GB of RAM and 5GB of VRAM throughout the entire flight. The performance gain is roughly 20%.
With my current setting, I used to get about 50fps in 2D 4K and 33-35fps in G2. After the update, I am getting 63-65fps in 2D and 40-42fps in G2. There’s also 0 stutter.
My config for reference:
10900K @5.1GHz all custom water loop
6800XT @2550Mhz water cooled
64Ghz @3200Mhz 16CL
512GB WD Black NVMe Drive
OpenXR Render Scale: 80%
Sim Render Scale: 100%
Graphics settings: High/Ultra
I am keeping my fingers crossed, but hope the optimization has finally fixed the issue that made this seem unusable.
