This is a forum of my findings with testing FSX and CrossfireX.

 

My system:

 

OS: Windows 7 x64

CPU: i7-980 3.33ghz

Ram: 16 GB Sniper 1866

SSD: 250 GB Samsung 840, 2 X OCZ 60 GB

HDD: 1 TB Hitachi, 1 Samsung HD105SI

CD/DVD Drive: HP CDDVDW

GPU: 2 X Radeon HD 7850 2GB OC'd to 1050, 1400

 

FSX with Crossfire with Bojote tweak tool:

Settings:

 

[Graphics]

Fram Rate: Unlimited

Resolution: 1920x1080

Anisotropic: On

Anti-aliasing: Checked

Global Texture: Very High

Lens Flare: Check

Advanced Animations: Check

 

[Aircraft]

Default View: 3-D virtual cockpit

High Res: Check

Aircraft Lights Illum Ground: Check

 

[scenery]

LOD: Large

Mesh com: 75

Mesh res: 5m

Texture res: 15cm

Water effects: Low 2.x

Scenery com: Extreme

Autogen den: Dense

Special effects: High

 

[Weather]

Cloud Draw: 60mi

Cloud Detail: Detaild  and maximum

Downloads Winds Aloft: Check

Rate of Change: Medium

 

[Traffic]

All 0 and Labels Off

 

[sound]

All 50

 

 

Results:

 

Ultra Light and Friday Harbor (in air): 38-60

Ultra Light and Friday Harbor (on ground): 34-50

 

Ultra Light and KLAX (FsDreamteam {in air}): 30-40

Ultra Light and KLAX (FsDreamteam {on ground}): 25-45

 

NGX and KLAX (FsDreamteam {in air}): 14-18

NGX and KLAX (FsDreamteam {on ground}): 14-16

 

Now the major jumps in fps on some results is because I panned around the VC and those were the averages.

 

FSX without CFX:

 

Same Settings and CFG as before.

 

Results:

 

Ultra Light and Friday Harbor (in air): 40-50

Ultra Light and Friday Harbor (on ground): 40-80

 

Ultra Light and KLAX (in air): 34-54

Ultra Light and KLAX (on ground): 38-60

 

NGX and KLAX (in air): 20-30

NGX and KLAX (on ground): 25-40

 



I forgot to mention that I have ORBX, REX Essential, and ASE installed and running while doing these tests.

FSX doesn't use the benefits of dual GPU's.

Yes I know that I was just showing my findings.

Nothing wrong with your findings :-) Looks like good results. Just wanted to mention this as your topic title can be a bit misleading.

Oh ok and yeah my findings show some crazy results. Having a Overclocked cpu is worse than just leaving it alone from what I've seen also.

That must be an anomaly. Overclocking can make a huge difference to frames. My i52500k stock at 3.6ghz gets about 12-15fps with the NGX in Orbx and UK2000 Heathrow. When I clock it to 4.8ghz I get lovely smooth 30fps.

 

FSX is hugely CPU bound. Faster processor = Faster FSX
