  1. I used to run 3570K (4.4ghz) 1600mhz ram and GTX970, ran great at 1080p and surprisingly well at 4K with some eye candy turned down Cheers, Dakpilot
  2. I assume that the turbines both turn the same way on each engine, How heavy a rotating mass is there on these very early jet engines and would the high rpm produce any gyro force? A bit stupid/off topic but I was just wondering Cheers, Dakpilot
  3. On Sony Xperia XZ premium (smartphone) standard white balance, I can see a distinct green hue (tone?) in the mentioned cloud pics. I know this is not a monitor but maybe it will give a common generic reference and be of some help (my Pc is currently down) Thanks for your great work on this subject Cheers, Dakpilot
  4. Always nice to see people's work Have you seen this thread Cheers, Dakpilot
  5. 9600k 6 cores, enough for 99% of sims for near/long term future at least until next upgrade cycle Cheapest option and easier (and cheaper) to O/C all cores to +5ghz Spend the saved money on highest quality MB and other componemts. Sell your previous MB/CPU/ram combo keep the rest and get 16GB 3200 14 cas ram and best Z390 board you can afford and 9600k Any mid range Z390 board will have built in software to give 'one click overclock' if you are not familiar This should give decent improvement However you can O/C your current system to 4.5 ghz which would help a bit as well (if you have not done this already) (and this of course is just my opinion) 😎 Cheers, Dakpilot
  6. Pretty sure a statement was given in one of the DD's relating to TC release, I don't want to misquote but pretty sure two player controlled mobile AA will be released later as DLC. No time to search/link the DD atmo Sorry Cheers, Dakpilot
  7. If you are only considering IL-2 or gaming generally a 9600k/9700k would probably give better performance for considerably lower price. Would this upgrade require a new MB? If so Z390 platform and associated CPUs would be better option. IL-2 is CPU limited more by single thread performance than by core count, 6 fast threads will beat more slower threads. If you also do more video editing etc. which use programs that take advantage of large thread counts/hyperthreading then this is a different consideration. Cheers, Dakpilot
  8. Very true but i7 6700k is highest performing single thread CPU of its time and barely outperformed by later and current chips. There is very little performance upgrade for this CPU, paring the highest price i7 CPU with 50 series Nvidia GPU would be imbance in a system? And would definitely fall into the "depends" situation Cheers, Dakpilot
  9. There is no agenda There is no intention to get threads locked You are simply passing bad information stated as facts. Pretty much all flight sims rely on single thread performance as the limiting factor, they do not work like other games. And this state will likely continue while restricted by DX 11 graphics API. Of course it would be a leap forward and greatly appreciated for more threads to be leveraged, especially with the recent rapid growth of multi threaded CPU tech, but this is a hypothetical moot point. True it could be said that "it depends" but that is in the case of a very imbalanced system with powerful CPU and weak GPU, but this is common sense and nothing to do with how IL-2 works. For the current foreseeable future IL-2 and other flight sims that have high compute and graphic needs will be restricted by CPU single thread performance with GPU being secondary. Your statements above are baloney and bad info for people who may spend a lot of money on upgrading GPU to find little or no improvement. Making (your) opinion statements as facts (often wrong) will will be laughed at, a change in posting style will go a long way in avoiding this. Going into victim mode and spamming threads when it is suggested that you are wrong is the very way to get threads locked. Some of your "help" is very constructive (and your enthusiasm to be commended) but your attitude not so much Cheers, Dakpilot
  10. This was during operation lifeline Sudan, we would fly a deep round trip into the North doing supply runs and medivac to various bases, never knew what would happen so we took in turns leg for leg, I think the longest was 9 stops.. about a 15 hour day 😎 (sorry for off topic) Cheers, Dakpilot
  11. No one is pushing an agenda or slandering you at every turn... But when you make statements as fact saying cpu and ram play little part in IL-2 Box you are clearly talking from an ill informed position, and giving very bad advice. It has been proven for many years (in many threads) that single thread cpu performance is the most critical performance limitation and until a change from DX 11 is made (a non trivial task) will likely continue, DX12 would also cause IL-2 to be inaccessible to a lot of the current player base. Properly multi threaded programs are (comparatively) as rare as hens teeth for many good reasons Cheers, Dakpilot
  12. Have to agree, Although when you are co-pilot and get to do the landing/flying it all gets complicated again... especially when you then transition to Captain. I got fully sorted after flying a long contract on a multicrew aircraft where we were both qualified as captains and took turns leg for leg as PIC, sometimes swapping seats 7 times a day. I am left handed but now fairly ambidextrous Cheers, Dakpilot
  13. You seem to be doing this yourself rather a lot recently.. Maybe dial back the attitude a bit and realise you do not know everything.. Acceptance of this will make your life easier and you may even learn something Cheers, Dakpilot
  14. From what I see BOBP is progressing at the same speed as the three previous modules (BoS/BoM/Bok) , Tank crew and FC do not seem to be delaying anything compared to past history (and I understand they are being done by different outsourced teams) Cheers, Dakpilot
  15. Am sorry but some of your antics seem to deserve a smiley laugh... It is as simple as that. As far as 262 sounds are concerned maybe it is best to wait for release before spamming multiple threads with preemptive drama Cheers, Dakpilot
