  1. (A few more pics as I continue to put this new Nvidia card to the test. So far, I have not been disappointed.) Catching up with 'an old friend' on the waters near Catalina ....... no SIDS, no STARS, ... just BEERS (and a designated Captain) . Thank-you, for sailing along !
  2. Today, I figured I'd test out my newly-configured Nvidia card. Used Nvidia Profile Inspector to set it up. My 9 yr. old AMD Radeon 7970HD bit the dust just before year's end....but hey,... he lived a long, productive life ! So here it goes, .... the trip leaves at Two Harbours (L21 seaplane base - found the .bgl file on line), cruises over to Avalon for lunch, then back. En route back, I met an 'old' friend along the way. Hope you enjoy. Sorry about all the pictures ..... .... and, No, .. the second last picture is not real...... it's Orbx !
  3. Funny thing is my computer guy says the exact same thing, especially about the ancient 14nm architecture. He built a few flightsim systems recently, using AMD, and figures most likely the new 2020 sim platforms will all be multi-core applications. 2020 will be a most interesting and exciting year, indeed.
  4. The AMD Ryzen Threadripper may have 32 cores with single core max boost clock of only 4.5GHz, but don't FSX or P3D still mainly utilize only a single core ? If so, then wouldn't an i9 9900k with max single core speed of 5GHz (no OC) be more suitable ? Perhaps MSFS2020 will be a different beast utilizing multiple cores (I hope so) ? ....... We'll all have to wait patiently for this one.
  5. Thank-you, everyone, I'm glad you liked these. When my 9 yr. old ATI Radeon HD 7970 died a couple months ago, I decided to keep my existing system temporarily on life support (not knowing yet what 2020 will bring) , but with an upgraded video card, .. this time of the Nvidia brand. It wasn't until I was pointed to 'Nvidia Profile Inspector' that everything really started to 'gel' and I quickly realized the potential of these great cards.
  6. After a bit of a hiatus, I finally got some free time before the holidays. With my new replacement video card tuned and ready, I couldn't resist stocking up on some airports today, ... and a new ride, and some repaints, and more fun stuff. Started by visiting 80WA ........ parked in the small lot, and took in some great tunes. Then off to 'J-Co' after a wardrobe change (new livery, shown below), for some lunch at the Spruce Goose ....... .... but I think I missed the party !
  7. I currently purchased 6 new scenery packs for FSX (all have been out and available for over a year at least ) and the 'manual download via Central' key in my account, which I use to generate my backup files' now gave me 'c4' files and not the 'WinRAR zip' files I got before. Apparently the older 'FTX Central v3' uses the zip files but cannot make use of the c4 files, whereas the new 'Central' uses c4 files, but cannot make use of zip files. I now see many hours spent creating local zip file backups of each of my Orbx sceneries rendered as going to waste by upgrading to 'Central' - unless the Orbx staff somehow come up with a patch or something. Orbx Central forum is also quite active with various things users have brought up, .. seems to me best is to wait for now. Why fix something when it ain't broke ?
  8. Hopefully we will be notified when end of support for FTX Central v3 occurs. For now, I see both FTX Central and 'Central' are available for download. Also good to know for those that do local scenery backups - apparently Central cannot install from FTX Central zip files, as it uses c4 files.
  9. .......... I heard no manual installer is available either.
  10. Great shots, John ! Does anyone know if this TD product is available to download through Orbx somewhere ?
  11. MS has everyone puzzled and on the edge of their seats right about now ......... you know something's coming, but what that may be is anyone's guess ! I just know that 'something' sure looks mighty fine to me.
  12. Thanks, Pete, for your 'downsampling' thread link. I will check this out next, now that I have the card reasonably well set-up. My fps is slightly better vs what it was with my ATI card, as far as I can remember, .. especially at KSEA.
  13. I turned 31 in October of the the year these guys wrote this tune ..........
