Laptop Suggestion For Fsx And Pmdg 777

Recommended Posts

Hi 

 

I don't know if I can post this kind of topic here but I posted a similar topic on the AVSIM Hardware subforum but I didn't get answers .... :(

 

I currently have a desktop PC with 8 Go of RAM / i7 950 / GTX 580.

 

i want to have a laptop as my desktop PC takes too much space :

 

I'm thinking of buying the MSI GT70 2PE which has the following config :

 

Modèle Processeur Intel® Core™ i7-4810MQ (2,80 GHz) Nombre de cœurs 4 Mode Turbo 3,80 GHz ProdSection.gif  MÉMOIRE Capacité mémoire 8192 Mo Barrette(s) installée(s) 1 Emplacement(s) disponible(s) 3 Type SO-DIMM DDR3L Fréquence 1600 MHz Maximum 32768 Mo ProdSection.gif  AFFICHAGE Écran 17,3" Tactile Non Résolution Full HD 1080 (1920 x 1080) Aspect de la dalle Mat / Anti-reflets Carte graphique NVIDIA® GeForce™ GTX 880M Type GDDR GDDR5 Mémoire totale 4096 Mo ProdSection.gif  STOCKAGE Espace disque total 1128 Go Nombre d'unité de stockage 2 Emplacement 2,5" n°1 HDD 1 To 7200trs/min Emplacement 2,5" n°2 Non Emplacement mSATA n°1 SSD 128 

 

I think that i can get better performance with this laptop because my current CPU is quite old, and FSX is mostly CPU demanding, my GTX only below 40% of GPU use even if I'm in 1024 and 1920*1080

 

the GTX 880m is quite like a GTX 660TI , so it's not a bad card for a mobile card

What do you think about the processor ? Do you think i can run FSX smoothly with the PMDG 777 with texture at 2048 and rex 4 texture at 2048 and DT5 ?

 

Thanks

I ran the NGX along with a lot of other add-ons on a core 2 duo at 2.4Ghz with 4 GB RAM, medium settings, with Nick's tweaks. I was getting on average 15 fps but smooth though.

So I think this laptop will do the job no problem, unless you install tons of sceneries and max your autogen. The only thing I'd recommend is having FSX on an SSD (if that's not already in your plans), doesn't improve performance but it makes loading much faster.

I have this:

 

Intel i7 4800MQ

Geforce GTX780M

20 GB RAM

SSD drives

 

and the processor really is a bottleneck. I would recommend to take the 4940MX but thats quite expensive.

 

At Aerosoft EDDF with the PMDG 777, i have avrg. 25 frames but it can also be less, depending on traffic and weather. And it should be 30+. Everything below that is crap.

Well I can't afford the 4940MX, I can get only the i7 4810 XX with a turbo at 3.8Ghz.

 

Well I only have photoscenries or use default fsx scenry. I don't use any traffic add on

 

Well 25FPS with PMDG 777 and aerosoft EDDF I'll be quite happy with that :)

 

What does bottleneck means ( CPU limited ) if the 4800 is a bottleneck, so my i7 950 is  very very very bottleneck then
