Migrating from an i7-920@4Ghz to i5-2500K, and wanted to get some object analysis of the difference. Still on the 920 and benchmarking the first flight, I see an average of 30-32 fps much in line with other 920 users. However the 2nd and subsequence flight (i.e. without restarting FSX in between) saw more like 40 fps ave. That didn't seem right compared to others, is it a common experience? Is it expected to restart FSX between each benchmark? I also tested an overclock of my GTX470, 607->707Mhz. This improved the ave fps by up to 7%, but more interestingly improved the lowest fps by 33% (15 to 20). Finally testing a Vertex 2 SSD in place of a 2TB Hitatchi yielded no appreciable difference in any measurements. Next stop is sandybridge.Simon

What are your IQ settings and what's your benchmark flight like please? (FSX settings, aircraft, location, weather, scenery addons...)

It's supposed to be done on a vanilla FSX with no addons or tweaks. Haha

Hi all Here's my results so far. Both the CPU and the GPU could be pushed a bit higher, but I'm a bit scared of upping the voltages too much. Will see how I get on, and post another set of results if there's any improvement. Will also try with HT enabled, but I reckon that'll be slower. Cheers,RFE RFE_FSXMark11_Report.jpg

Andrew, it needs to be run on a stock FSX. No mods, no addons. Nothing.

I will try that one day. I thought I would upload it here anyway, either way, its no advantage to me if this is any competition.

OK, I am restoring FSX cloud textures so I should have some proper results in 10 minutes or so now that I have some time.

Andrew. Read the instructions. It's gotta be a completely new install.
