New X850XT PE.....Fluctuating FPS......ok-ish performance!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Guys, I just bought a new X850XT PE nice boost from 9800 non-pro. However, I am getting the same FPS I was getting with my old card. This is what is weird.....when I set the FPS slider to 20 or 25, my FPS register at 12 or below and intermittently fluctuates to 18 for a split second. Flying is not bad, but not fluid, and luckily I do not experience any stutter.Now if I increase the FPS slider to 40 or 50 the FPS will increase to about 18, and if I go to unlimited it locks at 23....and jumps intermittently to 66. This still does not produce fluid simulation (workable but not fluid). Any suggestions?Here is my Rig Specs..... My system is not that slow yet PIV 3.06 Prescott Abit IC7-G Max Advanced II ThermalRight XP120 Cooling Heat sink 1 Gig 3200 DDR 400 Geil Ram Audigy Sound Card ATI X850XT PE (I have tried latest Omega and ATI 5.6 drivers)Matrox G400 Millenium dualhead video card 2 21" monitors 2 17" monitors PFC Column Yoke PFC Cirrus Yoke (for dual station ops) CH products Rudder pedals at both stations Elite King Air Throttle Quadrant Nostromo N52 Gamepad ...for TRIM Wheel applicability Networked to two other PCs... 1.

I'm in a similar situation. I went from a 9700 pro to an X800XT and I'm getting similar performance on my X800XT as I was with the 9700 pro. I have tried the ATI 5.7 and 5.6 drivers and I'm now getting some what better performance with the 4.12's. Very interesting. Nick Preston :-abduct

I found my Problem.....WHEW!!!!!!!I un-insalled and re-installed my FSUIPC (registered, but before I re-installed, I did a search on my PC for all FSUIPC related files (of which I had several laying around. Also I think the real culprit was a FSUIPC_reg.bin file which is placed by default on the C: drive. I somehow inadvertently compied this file into the modules folder sometime wayback last year, and it stayed there and "festered"Now what I have been doing is just copying the new FSUIPC.dll files into the "modules folder" so that I would not have to re-enter my registration code , etc. instead of removing all the FSUIPC files from my modules folder. As the good old saying goes, "it does not pay to take the short route ....all the time"I now have rock solid performance...locked at 25FPS. Thnks for all the help guys. I am now going to download the latest Vatalyst drives and see how they perform. Wish me luck!!!!

You should find that it will "SCREAM" along quite nicely.I am running the same card and all the settings maxed with A1 quality Ai and it rarely struggles.
