  1. Hi If the below image is similar to what you see than this is normal, and regardless of which version you have installed, your ORBX products will work. And you will also need to ensure that your boxed FSX version is updated to service pack 2 (SP2) or Acceleration, so it will be compatible with Orbx and other addons.
  2. Hi Nick Please check page 19 of the user guide, which can be found at settings/help.
  3. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0uB17Io2is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Md3C7dP6W4 There are also many other very informative comparison videos on YouTube. Just use the search field in YouTube and type in any combination of hardware and it will provide lots of content.
  4. Awesome! That sounds like a great road trip!
  5. Ya, going east towards CYWG is definitely flat, but just west of CYYC is the total opposite. we have the foothills and a beautiful skyline view of mountains looking west. This is where I work Mon-Fri during the day, my shop is in the NW corner of the Air Canada Hangar, if you zoom in you can see my white shop van parked outside the back door. https://www.google.com/maps/place/8050+22+St+NE,+Calgary,+AB+T2E+7H6/@51.1246112,-114.0045237,329m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m13!1m7!3m6!1s0x5371641326050ca7:0x5e91a670e8a9d46f!2s8050+22+St+NE,+Calgary,+AB+T2E+7H6!3b1!8m2!3d51.124114!4d-114.0046878!3m4!1s0x5371641326050ca7:0x5e91a670e8a9d46f!8m2!3d51.124114!4d-114.0046878
  6. I love it too Jack! Looks like home.
  7. Of course, this is only intended as help to answer AnkH's question about single threaded performance gains of the new Ryzen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phKLyU2ObEw
  8. What would you like to know specifically? Usually anything I suggest, you dispute and berate anyway Like I have stated many times, my 1800X, 2700X, and now 3800X have all ran all the flight simulators very well. Do you consider the 7700K and 8700K able to run P3Dv4 very well (they are not ahead in gaming)? Is the 9900K faster in most games? Yes it is, but as you know gaming benchmarks don't necessarily tell the whole story all the time either because they are GPU bound at different levels. So I hope you will find the below videos helpful to compare where things are at. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpE2UAlhzVM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UsdKnnX4se0 Ryzen clock for clock IPC performance has already surpassed Intel with this latest generation. I can assure you the upgrade to the 3800X (with the single threaded performance increase) has translated into performance gains in P3Dv4. And yes, the situation will be getting better very soon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eg4G4YjWH5w
  9. Of course we test our sim after upgrade...do you? Why wouldn't they translate into P3D performance? Are you implying FS is optimized only for Intel’s single threaded performance?
  10. Hi Below are a couple of topics for your perusal.
  11. I have also noticed the under load average temps seem to be at least 10c cooler.
  12. Here is a quick look at my upgrade to the Ryzen 7 3800X on my X370 mobo, with no manual OC, just PBO enabled and memory XMP enabled.
  13. Unfortunately, this has been confirmed as fake news..
  14. Very nice! There are many very nice X570 mobo's to choose from. There are also a line of X470 MAX boards that will be released for this 3rd gen Ryzen....but for this round and because there will soon be some even better Ryzen CPU's coming down the pipeline, I am able to use my existing X370 board and install the R7 3800X or R9 3900X and enjoy a huge performance upgrade fully supported by ASUS. I have chosen the 3800X, which is on order. So this will be the same mobo now for my 1800X, 2700X, and now 3800X. Then in the near future I will upgrade to 4th gen Ryzen with new mobo and there should also be some amazing AMD GPU's ready for the PCIE 4.0.
