Low performance on Win 8.1

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

I had no problem running FSX on highest settings on Win 7. On Windows 8.1 Pro x64 I'm getting only about 20 fps, when I lower settings, it does not help, fps will increase only a little bit (about 5 fps).

 

System specs are following:

Fujitsu Siemens E754 laptop, i5 4200M 2.5 GHz, 16 GB DDR3, 2x 128GB SSD, Intel HD 4600 graphics.

 

Any ideas guys? If duplicate topic, please don't get angry, I suck at searching.

 

TY, Daniel

Try to disable as much unneded background programs and Windows services as you can.

 

Did you use the same laptop with Windows 7 or are we talking desktop vs laptop performance?

I know older Intel graphics GPU's were generally poor performers when it came to running simulators, perhaps that is still the case? 

 

Also, a CPU at 2.5 GHz is very slow for FSX.

FSX works better with a dedicated video card and not the one built into your CPU. How were you able to run FSX w/max settings with your current system?

 

Moving to AVSIM Hardware Forum.
