  1. Hi Nick If my 2080 card does not have HDMI 2.1, yet a 3080 card does have HDMI 2.1 and I have a 55" Oled TV with HDMI 2.1 (i.e. no need to buy an expensive dedicated 4k PC monitor) - do you think the upgrade is worth it to enjoy 4k visuals (instead of 2560 x 1440) on a large Oled screen with good FPS and refresh rate? Interested to hear your thoughts.
  2. Interesting view Nick. I just found the following article which shows a good graph at various resolutions in Ultra quality DX11 (per their specific test scenario) for the MSI 3080 Gaming X Trio 10gb card for FS2020. https://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/msi_geforce_rtx_3080_gaming_x_trio_review,20.html At 2560 x 1440 the 1070ti achieves 29 frames per second, the 2080 achieves 42 frames per second and the 3080 achieves 48-50 frames per second. Therefore for 8 frames per second gain (or c. 16% FPS gain) from a 2080 to 3080, it is hard to justify the price of the upgrade to a 3080. Also presumably when the developers have nailed and released a stable DX12 in FS2020 this should enhance visuals and frames per second further with some existing cards.
  3. Hi flyers I play FS2020 in 2560 x 1440 and have an Intel i7-8700k processor with 32gb of Corsair 3200Mhz ram. I have owned an MSI 2080 Gaming X Trio 8gb graphics card for 3.5 years and it is an excellent graphics card for FS2020. As you all maybe aware, the prices of Nvidia graphics cards have recently started to reduce to much more 'reasonable' prices. I was thinking of upgrading my 2080 8gb card to a 3080 10gb or 12gb card and would be interested to hear your views. I can easily sell my 2080 card on Ebay for c. £400 at present, before Ebay commission/fees. My queries are: - Do you think it is worth upgrading from a 2080 8gb to a 3080 10gb or 12gb card now? - Will I see a noticeable performance increase in FPS in FS2020 by upgrading? - Is it worth waiting instead for the Nvidia 4000 card series later this year e.g. the 4080? Thanks.

  7. Hi John Do you know if the development team are going to amend and fix the runway approach lighting so it represents the real airport runway approach lighting - per the official aerodrome charts? Surprising to see this has not been implemented before release. Do you know why? If you look at the following video review at c. 22 mins 00 secs and 35 mins 30 secs this highlights the anomalies.
