Re: Upgrade CPU/ Motherboard

So, what clock speeds can you achieve with the 8700K and Ryzen 7, respectively? Remember that, FSX- and P3D-wise at least, Intel CPUs are more efficient at processing instructions per clock cycle.

Re: Black screen/Shader issue?

That started happing to me after Windows 10 1903 update late last month.

Re: Upgrade CPU/ Motherboard

I did research the Intel I7 8700k and found that by going with the Ryzen 7 I can also get a CPU cooler and 16 gig ram for the same price. Also, I have other games that recommend the AMD chipset over Intel chips.

Re: C-130J-30 Tail textures applied to external tanks

I am assuming that I need to uninstall the Content msi from 4.3 and reinstall the content msi from 4.4 to get the updates for this.

I can not hear anyone talking to me when using the C130 because of the engines. The sound sliders in settings seem to have no effect on this aircraft, I even u...
