What flight speed on the tiles according to the processor

Recommended Posts

Hello ,I read the manual but I did not answer with precision:and saw: 80-100 kts ok but but under what CPU1/ what is the speed as the processor-P4 -core2duo , E6600-Quad-core E8800 (i believe)-I7 920etc....2/ what is the best way to fly over the area, circle, rectangle, diagonal3/ what is the best altitude and speed ADSL 6 Mbps and I7-920Thancks .

There are far too many variables to answer with precision to your exact configuration. Here are some guidelines:1. More CPU is better. It will use as many cores as you have, and all the spare power it can get. Remember that FSX doesn't use the GPU well, and requires a lot of CPU at high resolutions/framerates/settings. Find a balance.2. Covering less area will require less processing/downloading. Constantly flying over new terrain will yield the lowest possible performance, flying in circles the highest. Find a balance.3. Flying slower gives TP more time per area to get the image completed. Decreasing the LOD setting makes the image easier to complete. Find a balance.Best of luck!
