I was using MSFS since day one, since the new VR option I hardly stopped flying it and I love it. At the beginning the performance of my G2 Reverb has been acceptable with settings in Mid-High, 100/80 and all the tweaks that you can find on the forum with 457.30. With each version and hotfix the FPS started dropping. The latest hotfix, maybe related to the offscreen pre cache, it has become a hardly 20 FPS experience with a lot of stutters. I posted a couple of questions and comments started to point that probably the problem was on my settings but I doubt it, I havent changed much on my side. I lately upgraded to the latest nvidia driver which pushed 2 extra FPS but within the airport areas it drops below 20 and my VATSIM connection drops. When I check my CPU and GPU usage nothing is maxing out, plenty of room there.
With my 2080TI, i9 3.8Gz, 128GB RAM and M2 Drive I started to think that I was on an “old” hardware, not capable of driving the desired performance so I decided to remove the dust from my Xplane. With similar settings, mostly HIGH, SkyMax Pro and a lot of addons to make Xplane nicer and a complex plane, trying the E190 and the Zibo 737… I was amazed to see 48-50 FPS with my Reverb G2 using SteamVR at 100/100. So smooth that I really started to doubt the MSFS VR implementation.
Its not a rant, it was a realization that there is nothing wrong with my hardware and I hope the Asobo team checks whats going on with the VR performance. Does anybody else experienced this difference?
