UnOfficial FPS experiment during cockpit build

Recommended Posts

So I'm in the middle of changing my PC up a bit and collecting sale parts for a 3PC build in anticipation of Xplane trials at some point.


I wanted to build up a reference file of changes, tweaks and impacts to my system performance.


All these are visuals only as I use a hardware cockpit.


To start, in base install of P3D, only tweak being infinity mask 84. Running three screen with bezel mask resolution of 5916 x 1080, FOV of 150, zoom .64, FPS locked 30, sliders all right except water at one notch back from right.


System is an older i7-920 @ 170Mhz 3.5Ghz, 12GB, dual GTX285s latest drivers


On Ground at KMDW active runway 14

On ground at KDFW Dreamteam add on airport 11


6000 ft above KMDW 21

6000 ft above KDFW Dreamteam 17


Using above config, Kostas tweaks


Ground at KMDW 17

Ground at KDFW 14


6000 ft above KMDW 27

6000 ft above KDFW Dreamteam 21


Next change will be with Same PC, but GTX680.


Then I will switch to an i5-3570K at do both stock and overclocked
