How's your Orbx performance holding up on 1.4?

Recommended Posts

Curious how others experience in Orbx land has been on 1.4 and what settings you use w/ specific regions. I'm an ATI user (6990) and I'm not noticing a huge difference between 1.3 and 1.4. I'm really more curious how other ATI users are holding up as we've always been at a disadvantage. I do notice now that I have water reflections enabled again I'm getting some minor instances of blurries in heavy areas using some of the more resource using aircraft (Legacy, 182T etc).. I do run my settings high though. 5.5 / Max Scenery Complexity and Dense Auto Gen slider. No car/ship/ferry traffic at all, no AI at all and sky reflections only.

 

PNW areas I average 20-25fps with dips down into the 12's around thick areas especially the closer I get to the SeaTac area.. Bowerman for instance I I'm in the low 30s, Diamond Point I'm cruising down the runway pushing 14 and rises into the 20's once out of the airport area. Outside of PNW (namely the densely populated areas) I have no concerns at all really as it's much less dense scenery and autogen. This all with cloud cover as I do not believe in basing performance on clear skies.

Bill- I can't comment for AMD GPUs but I can conidently say that my FPS in ORBX+P3D are near doubled when compared to FSX.

I would say you are getting average frames, especially in the Seattle area. I use Nvidia so I won't make a direct comparison, but thats what I'm getting in complex aircraff with about the same settings.

My experience is similar with a AMD Radeon HD 6870, I have also not noticed any significant framerate improvement in 1.4 over 1.3 with OrbX scenery.
