Microsoft and Asobo Studio have released a new patch for Microsoft Flight Simulator, bringing the popular flight sim to Version 1.18.13.0. As hinted by the developers during a livestream from earlier this month, Microsoft Flight Simulator’s latest patch delivers a huge performance boost for players on PC thanks to improvements such as better multi-core support for CPU, better memory and GPU usage, and faster loading times. Asobo Studio’s new Microsoft Flight Simulator patch is also said to reduce stutters significantly. While the degree of performance improvement will obviously vary between hardware configurations, Asobo Studio has hinted that some users might experience impressive jumps of as much as 30 FPS.

  1. That’s nice.

    So I guess the word previously, that all they did was change the render scaling was untrue?
