In short, Your CPU is the bottleneck. That's a beast of a graphics card and you have more than enough RAM. FSX is a CPU bound single threaded application. It needs CPU clock speed and lots of it. Still, you should be seeing better performance than that. Google Word Not Allowed's FSX hardware and tweaking guide. Its an invaluable read. FSX won't take advantage of GPU's the way other programs will. I can't get 30+ FPS in every situation with my setup

And remember to go easy on the settings, could be that your settings are to high for your system to handle..

Start by turning down some settings that, IMO, don't matter as much. In my case, that's road traffic to begin with.

Yeah road traffic is a good performance killer, Bloom and shadows too..Maybe you could post your settings so we can eliminate what your problem may be. What type of plane, areas that you expirience so low FPS, is it heavy scenery or do you have low FPS in every scenario(the trike in a rural area)? Sounds weird that switching from Windows 8 would make your performance drop that much.. :huh:

 

And btw I have used home and Ultimate edition Windows 7 for FSX and havent seen any performance difference between the two...so I don't think switching that will gain you anything

hy the a/c I normally use is the pmdg 747 and also pmdg 737,iv got mostly international airports, but I normally fly from Liverpool,faro, Lisbon and some others from caribean,my settings are wen it comes to textures I put high only and switch off all the traffics and blooms,and to be honest by having a gtx680 I shouldn't be having this problem I tink.

once again thanks guys

Having the 680 doesn't help you that much in FSX as it's the CPU that do most of the work. What are your autogen settings when you fly PMDG

Look at my specs, I have autogen on Normal when flying the NGX....Im not sure but I think you expect to much from your system and that you are throwing to much at it. What clouds are you using, can also have a huge impact(HD clouds in 4096 res) I use 1024 resolution clouds..

 

About Your Nvidia settings Im not sure what you mean CPU or GPU?

thank you

Hmmm, that didn't gain you much. You said that when you had Win8 your performance was better, what frames did you get then at the same settings? 

 

Im starting to get out of ideas, I think someone else has too step in here and try to help further..

But I still don't understand that Nvidia setting: CPU, as far as I know Nvidia settings has nothing to do with the CPU

Could you try and fire up one of the default planes in your favorite most complex addon scenery and see what frames you get then?

If you still has 5-10 frames there could be something else gone wrong somewhere...

 

I dont feel my help actually gotten you anywhere :P There must be someone else on this forum that has a similar system as you, who could comment on what to expect at certain settings.

Where did all the experts go? Maybe we have to send you over to the enemy(Word Not Allowed) and maybe he could help you...

So you're not getting more frames in a default plane than in the NGX, there must be something weird going on. I just can't nail it.... :( Sorry

 

Come on people help me out here, this guy needs some help... :help:

Ok my suggestion since I  seen you have o/c  your system, is  to wind  back  to the stock settings  to see  if  it  improve maybe  your o/c  setting now  is  to  high for your  system to take,  since  there is  no way  you should be getting the fps you getting  now.
