When you load the Epic Clouds they will contribute to the load on your computer and its ray tracing capability. If you get near to the limits of your hardware you will begin to see boxes or stripes in the clouds. You can mitiigate this by turning down your settings just as you would for any other performance related issue with any other part of the sim. Note that:
- AMD graphics cards have less capable ray tracing support than their Nvidia equivalents.
- The MSFS DX11 graphic library is currently more efficient than DX12
