    Awesome. This will be enough reason for me to revisit this once the update lands. Well, this and the fact that I randomly discovered that I can use my RC transmitter as a flight controller through USB...

    maybe my junktop dx505 can handle high 60 now...this is great news and I will buy the gamepass when it releases with the update just to check or recheck this game out and see.....pretty cool seeing a game with this kind of photorealism

    I didn't know that, it's not useful to me but nevertheless; very cool!

    I was not unhappy with the performance previously just given the type of game it is, you can deal with a little lower frame rate with something like FS. This is a huge deal though, getting that kind of perf increase is uncommon, great job Asobo. I bet a lot of new people will be able to play it or bump to 4K.

    You guys should try to play FSX or P3D. The amount of addons (and money) needed to make those games look halfway decent (though still nowhere near the looks of MSFS) is huge and in the end they will run worse than MSFS.

    I'd say it went from suboptimal to good. Doom Eternal (aside from the quite possibly most worthless VRAM usage award of all time Ultra Nightmare textures) is probably the best of this generation.
