Phil Taylor provides a detailed analysis of GPU specs and implications.
Should you have a spare week, browse through this thread on SP2/Acceleration AVSim. Although I don’t agree with all that is said, it seems that many users and developers used the opportunity to vent on FSX/SP1/SP2, and I’m hoping that with that done, the focus will be on how we can all work together productively.
Outside of that thread, Francois posted some of his own thoughts.
Buried in AVSIM thread is an important statement from Phil Taylor: “I meant it when I stated that this was a precursor of things to come, back compat is about to undergo serious changes. In the future it will very likely no longer be possible to resell old content for the new platform. At all, as in the platform will refuse to load it. “
Developers take note. And I don’t see this, with the right support from Aces, as a bad thing.
