This post title could be something like “A wise man changes his mind, a fool never will”. Few weeks after the disappointment carried by the release notes (see my September post), simmers release feedbacks. Serious one. I tried to put away simple fan’s reaction and analyze the others. They are some interesting videos like this one :
Despite Jordan King’s video focused a bit on memory management (VAS(1) and OOM(2)), an area I wasn’t much concerned (not flying huge aircraft addon like PMDG), one thing was reminded to me within the video : the SLI(3) support. The King’s video was made with a SLI configuration and clearly shows that artefact disappeared. See by yourself erratic lightnings for example started at 26min22 and author’s comment at 31min50s. Did I forgot I bought - some time ago - a second nvidia GTX 770 connected in SLI ? Yep, some kind of because of the annoying SLI artefacts created by the 2.5. So I fly with the SLI feature desactivated since a while.
Just to keep you update, I finally bought my Professional* Prepar3D licence last Sunday and downloaded the 10Gb files. Now it’s time to evaluate it.
Let’s keep in touch.
* The only license available to me as I’m not student anymore nor am I a developer :
(1) Virtual Address Space
(2) Out Of Memory
(3) * Two or more video cards connected together to get extra graphic power
