Upon loading FSX it keeps "Pre-loaded" in the memory some generic
scenery tiles and textures (the most common used global ones) when you
exit FS, if you have it set to empty the cache then it will have to
re-load these if you start FS again. |
Basically it is there to try and speed up subsequent loading times (as long as the machine is switched on) Probably good for developers who switch in and out of FS to go back to programs like AFCAD etc.
But of course all those files in the memory are taking up space that could be used by other programs outside of FS.
For machine speed it is better ticket. For FS loadup it is better unticked.
