This is from NVIDIA's support page:

Note: It is not recommended to apply DSR resolution while on desktop and when playing any games in windowed or fake full screen mode.

I use DSR 4x (monitor 1920x1080) and P3D 2.4 is fantastic.

It works great for me. Even is fax I get a smoother experience with better visual quality. I do use it full screen all the time so perhaps that's what they mean?

I don't understand what's the hype with DSR. SGSSAA is better and it works without issues in Prepar3D.

SGSS causes performance issues in heavy cloud cover on my rig - DSR causes no such issues.

Are your settings in both methods equivalent? 4x SGSSAA and 4x DSR should exhibit the same performance.

4 x SGSS still shimmering, DSR 4x not.

This video explains how it works to reduce shimmering and artifacting of rendered graphics...

The exact quote from Nvidia on the OP-provided link is

Note: It is not recommended to apply DSR resolution while on desktop and when playing any games in windowed or fake full screen mode.


Note that they refer only to windowed or fake full screen mode ... not actual full screen.

DSR 4x (monitor 1920×1080) and P3D 2.4. Great!
