I've played the sim on my LG OLED 4K TV every day since last Thursday. My settings have been custom with everything notched slightly above High-End. After playing for a couple hours this morning, I left the plane on the runway for 20 minutes to visit a friend at my front door, came back and everything was extremely slow. Even navigating to menus is a task. Stuttery frame rates at even Medium Settings.

I have an MSI laptop with a full RTX 2080 and 16 GB RAM. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the sim, updated drivers, everything. When I unhook it from the TV and play it on the laptop it's butter-smooth at 1080 and high settings.

I'm completely perplexed at the sudden and profound quality dip when I didnt do anything differently between this morning and this afternoon. Help, please!

I have a full desktop with a R7 3800XT, 16GB RAM clocked to 3466MHz and a Gigabyte RTX2080. I play on a 1440p@144Hz monitor and I can't do high settings. It's just really bad optimization and performance. It is a massive game with next gen graphics, so maybe this is to be expected.
