"Windows 7 64 bit" versus "Windows XP 32 bit"

Recommended Posts

How does the NGX perform on these systems? What differences you noted? I'm planning to change to "Windows 7 64 bit", as recommended by PMDG. Teo Halfen

out of memory errors can be a serious problem with a 32-bit OS.

I noted that the memory NGX uses in the "windows XP 32 bit" goes at nearly 1500 Mb, while complex addons go to nearly 600 Mb. But is there a good frame rate gain too with 'windows 7 64 bit'?

Hello Teo,I think we would need to see your processor and RAM specs to be any usefull. for my specs, I get anywhere from 16~30 fps in the virtual cockpit,and up to about 55 fps on an external view.

Sounds like you have a serious memory issue there Phil, you might need to do a memtest.

Did this some months ago when I overclocked. Als stable. Passed all Stress tests. Actually just changed some NVIDIAinspector settings and do the Flight again. Will see. Right now enroute to cairns at fl340 and so far all Fine.

Edit. All fine. Landed perfectly. Not only reduced some NVIDIA AA settings but also reduced REX textures to 1048. No visual impact and no OOM. Just in yet another flight from cairns to Melbourne. Hope that goes well too

Thats, a relief, I had a gd3.dll at epping on approach to rnwy 27 @ymml, so seems Orbx is very sensitive to what settings you have. Flew from YBCS without incident until the approach. Go figure.

Hi,Upgraded to Win 7 64-bit back in autumn '09 - for me, made a huge difference to FSX.e.g., was getting weird graphics problems and OOM errors after an 8 hour flight - not good - under Win XP 32-bit.Whilst I still like XP for some applications, Win 7 64-bit seems the way forward...Good luck!Carl Beeby

landed at actually at YBBN, all fine though a bit sluggish during approach as YBBN is fps hungry. Now om yet another trip from YBBN to YSCH (i.e. YCFS in the PMDG) and just reached T/D, must get ready now for the visual approach
