Nvidia new driver 332.21...any difference?

Recommended Posts

I am downloading the new nvidia driver released today. 332.21.

Does it possibly do anything better for P3Dv2? I do not have much hope though...

I didn't see any real differences with the new driver.

No change here, not that I expected there to be. The only thing I would like from a driver release is to get the AA I can with FSX but that might not be possible.

Now, there is a person claiming its a huge improvement. So, what is it? :) ( this always happens on new driver releases)

Hi,

 

I've seen a big improvement in P3Dv2, so much so that I'm not touching P3Dv2 until this boost stops. I just hope that never happens 8-)

Same here. I can now fly UK2000 EGLL Extreme and it not go below 20fps using a certain 737. Getting much higher frame rates in other, smaller aircraft.

Hi Jeroen,

 

Wow, sorry your not seeing any benefit. I remember updating driver after drive and reading other peoples posts about having good results, I always kept asking when is it going to happen to me. Well, it finally happened. Sorry your not seeing the same results.

LOL Maybe the next one will be my lucky driver. ^_^

 

I also never have seen a real benefit from using new drivers. I am using the previous official driver only because I reinstalled my OS a short while ago and I thought P3D wouldn't mind a new one. It didn't, so it seems. So why this new ones suddenly gives me stutters... it's a mystery to me. ^_^

What should FPS (frames per second) be set to, like a value or Unlimited:

In Nvidia inspector = ?

In the Sim = ?

I seem to be getting better results having it locked, but I have it locked to something slightly higher than a round number (as suggested by LM, in order to minimise stuttering). I usually use 32 or 33. Oddly I got better results in FSX on unlimited, but as we know, they are different beasts. I have nothing locked in Inspector with regards to frame rate. 

 

There are so many variables when setting up FSX/P3D2 that there is little wonder that we all have varying success with drivers etc. Sometimes I think it just comes down to pot luck!

I installed the new driver on Wednesday night, I definitely saw a substantial fps improvement in clear weather. But then I activated Opus/real weather, which in Vancouver was just awful at the time. Opus depicted the weather brilliantly, but my FPS dropped to 8-12 fps which was as depressing as the weather.

 

My system is no slouch

I don't think I ever saw a frame rate increase in FSX from a driver, but as FSX is so CPU bound its not likely a driver will have much impact, unless something is very wrong. Maybe as P3Dv2x is more GPU orientated, there is a chance drivers may help. There is also more chance nVidia and AMD will also include some optimisations (esp. with newer cards) in future builds, as P3D is a living platform, unlike FSX.

 

Its always going to be marginal, as P3D is still very much CPU led... real improvements are only going to come from better hardware.

Unless a feature gets broken (AA or AF or something) any difference people claim in FSX or P3D or whatever from a driver update is probably placebo - especially in a CPU limited app like FSX. (P3Dv2 may see some slight improvement if there's an across the board change in DX11 optimization or something like that, but that would be rare and they'd certainly play it up in the release notes) Nvidia lists exactly what they improved in the release notes for each driver release and they're looking mainly at the big mass market stuff like Battlefield 4 or whatever, not a 7+ year old niche flight sim. It's been many many years since they optimized anything specifically for FSX.
