Sandy Bridge Performance

Recommended Posts

I just received my new sandy bridge-based pc (details in signature). I will be posting my experiences with FSX hopefully this weekend.

I haven't had time to do complete test yet, but all I can say is that at stock clocks, at fsdreamteam Kfll, rwy 9L, with Wilco a320 I'm getting about 24-25 fps. I will post more detailed information when I have more time.

Yes I will be posting all my tweaks, settings, etc. I'll try my best to do it sometime this week (maybe even today) but I'm still installing things on fsx to get it how it used to be on my laptop and I have a busy schedule this week but maybe I'll have time today.

Okay, I had time to do a quick fsx benchmark and here are my results, settings, etc.*I had to take these shots in windowed mode. In full screen mode, I was getting about 3 fps less than seen on these shots. I had about 2 small stutters while on final approach, besides that, everything was normal. My cpu is at stock speed. Also, I am using an external fps limiter to keep my fps at no more than 30. Please tell me any thing you want to see in a future benchmark. I already plan to do a new one next weekend when I am planning to overclock my cpu.Here are my settings.Here is my FSX.cfg (I used bojote's auto-tuning

interesting!what airport it is?can you set the level of detail (radius) to max?

I tried it earlier on max and it lowered my fps by like 3. This airport is KFLL at runway 9L.

With that CPU, everything should be on max. Also, uncheck AA within FSX and use nVidia Inspector profiles (setup found on PMDG General forum)

Currently overclocking to 4.6 ghz. I'll post my results when I have time (maybe on saturday). I'll max everything out also.

Make sure to check out nVidia Inspector.I force 8xS anti-aliasing in FSX with it. Never seen a clearer image :)

Can't you do 8xSQ with that card Alex?

Overclocked to 4.6. Still have to test for stability, etc. As this is my first overclock (I might even ask for help in another post to see if my vcores, etc. Are normal). Also, I will try the nvidia inspector. What exactly does it do? Does it decrease performance any at all?

Yes. Just tested it, now running 8xSQ ;) Thanks Dazz
Would be cool if you could do some tests flying through loads of clouds and tell us what it's like compared to 8xS performance wise please :rolleyes:My 460 can handle 8xS no problem, but 8xSQ + clouds = -50% FPSI'm considering maybe a 570

Nvidia inspector is a tool to configure the nVidia graphics driver, and set the antialiasing mode (to smoothen the jagged edges in 3D graphics), anisotropic filtering (to increase the field of view/reduce blurry textures) vsync, etc...http://forum.avsim.net/topic/324786-nvidia-configuration-guide-inspector-2xxxx-drivers-version-20-explanations-of-all-settings/

Thanks for the informative and useful info. I'm looking for a machine with basically the same specs as yours. I'm also considering an I7 950 and will post some questions in a separate post. It sounds as though Sandy Bridge is the way to go. Howard

With my REX HD clouds (max res.) and all the trimmings, SQ only reduces my perfomance a small bit, but does look very nice indeed. I'm still trying to compare 8xS and SQ to see if the change is worth the small performance decrease. The 580 handles it lovely. Probably a 5-10% decrease.

Ok, thanks Alex :biggrin: A 5-10% is great in my bookI guess the 570 stands somwhere in between, probably a bit closer to the 580... I think I'll wait for the next generation's 670 or whatever anyway
