Microsoft Flight Simulator Patch 1.8.3.0 released, brings CPU and GPU performance improvements

Microsoft-Flight-Simulator-brand-new-1

Microsoft and Asobo have released a new performance patch for Microsoft Flight Simulator. According to the teams, patch 1.8.3.0 brings a number of CPU and GPU performance improvements.

Going into more details, this latest update tweaks CPU thread priorities to reduce interruption of frame critical threads. Furthermore, it optimizes loading system to reduce overall loading times, as well as heavy airport scenes impact on CPU. In addition, it reduces the amount of GPU overdraw to improve GPU performance.

What this basically means is that the game will be less taxing on most PC configurations. So yeah, while these CPU improvements are not up to what we expect to see when Asobo adds support for DX12, they are definitely welcome.

As always, Steam and Microsoft Store will download this update the next time you launch their clients. Below you can also find its performance improvements (you can find the complete changelog

A senior high court judge has halted a charter flight hours before up to 20 asylum seekers who crossed the Channel to the UK in small boats were due to be forcibly removed to Spain, a country they had previously passed through.

The judge, Sir Duncan Ouseley, ordered the flight to be grounded because of concerns the asylum seekers due to fly might be left destitute in the streets of Madrid as happened to a group of asylum seekers earlier this month.

It is thought to be only the second time an entire Home Office charter flight has been grounded by a high court action.

Under regulations known as Dublin III, one European country can return asylum seekers to another they have previously passed through if there is evidence of this in the form of fingerprints or other proof.
