I7 4790K @ 4.40 Ghz Blurries and slow loading time for AUTOGEN

Recommended Posts

Good day,

 

Well I will try to explain what is happening in my FSX... I had a old computer and I buy a new one, an i7 4790K running at 4,40 Ghz, I have a GTX 650 2gb as graphic card, 8Gb Ram @ 1600 9-9-9-28, HDD for Windows 7 and SDD for FSX. Despite everything is new and with High speed processor, I have installed FSX and AUTOGEN is loading and popping up very slow, and also the scenary texture far of 2 miles is blurry, I cannot see clear the scenary close to me. 

 

I have try to run it without any tweak, afterwards I have tried with Bojote´s website, and no success, I have download latest drivers and I really don´t know what to do. If someone knows how to fix the problem or what is the solution, I will really appreciate!

 

 

Thanks in advance

 

Victor

First of all, thank you for your fast response!!!

 

My FSX settings are AA off, filter trilinear, Autogen Dense and the rest max except traffic, water which is in x2low. Looks like after followinf NickN tips the blurries slightly dissapear, but still remain.

 

I tried to upload a picture but I don´t know how to do it.

 

Thanks!

Victor, just a quick question. I'm about to order the i7 4790K, and I have the GTX 650 and 8GB of ram.

 

How is it? Does FSX load fast regularly? And how are your frames (with heavy scenery/addons)?

 

And try to delete the FSX CFG.

Your bottle neck is that  GTX 650 - get a better card with that processor  - why would you use a low end video card with a high end processor makes no sense

I have a i7-4790 @ 4.4 Ghz with a NVidea 760 card and OrbX scenery regions for the US, Oz, and EU, Global Vector, Global Europe Landclass and Pilots Global 2010 Mesh  and I see 29+ FPS almost everywhere with a 30 FPS lock in FSX.

I think your system is OK - CPU is running fast enough and videocard is not that bad. The SSD is great for loading up flights fast but makes no difference in game as the CPU is always the bottleneck for FSX texture loading however fast it may be.

 

Turn of hyperthreading and use an affinitymask of 14.  Also lock framerates at 30 (not 29 and not 31 - exactly 30).

 

Look in the fsx.cfg for LOD radius and set to 6.5 then look for fiber rate time fraction and try 0.8 (you can always revert back if this doesn't help.

 

Usepools=0 should help on your system too - it works fine on mine and I have a much weaker system than you - this takes some of the load off of the CPU and moves it to the video card your card is fine for this).

 

I would also say that at fast speeds, FSX does have a habit of blurring even on the best of systems.  No issues at 100 kts but fly a fast military jet and the system never seems t0 keep up,

 

Just one further point, have you checked that your CPU is actually running at 4.4 when running FSX?

Paul, frame rates mean nothing in FSX, because they rely on so many factors.

Well, when they get down to 5 or 6 they sure do! Slide show time!

 

I lock my framerate to 30 and that gives me a smooth flying experience. The fact that my

FPS rarely drops below 28-29 indicates to me that the system is keeping up with the

demands of the environment.

 

Granted, that the path to obtain that 'stable' setup involves many different attributes, the

end result is what I look for. It is a 'gauge' that reflects MY system performance as dictated

by my hardware and the various FSX 'tweaks' and also indicates what is achievable with

an i7-4790/GTX 760 in an OrbX scenery environmaent.

Recommend you look at two things in combination the advice already given.

 

1. Pare the autogen back a bit, maybe start back at Normal. Autogen is very demanding....

2. Try the buffer pools tweak already talked about by cianpars

 

And slow loading....you need to look at getting an SSD.

 Rich hit the nail on the head, the GTX 650 isn't much for a video card. NI tweaks are to help image quality but that GPU that is having a hard enough time as it is.

Thanks Dave not being mean to poster - just stating the obvious from what I have learned after buying a ton of video cards - that being said I didnt notice huge wow moments with each upgrade - we are in the wrong business - should be producing video cards - then buy a few islands with all the money we made  :)

650TI got spare ones laying in the house be better tha 650 gtx. Even a 760 will help with fsx, but regradless of gpu. Have to turn settings back here. $330 dollars on Amazon 970gtx is good card if you want candy.

Hi Victor! I've looked in to blurry ground textures a lot you'll find if you look through my topic history.

 

1st question: Are you new to FSX?

The reason I'm asking is because even at full texture and autogen loading the autogen still pops upp fairly close to the aircraft in FSX and at all settings you can set manually inside FSX, textures are always looking blurry not far from the aircraft when you look closely. You can increase the LOD setting inside the .cfg fot better textures, but the autogen needs P3D to be shown further out.

 

2nd question: Do you have a FPS lock set inside FSX? A lot of people are saying that its a weak gfx card by todays standards (true) but still a faster than a 8800GTS512 that can achieve full autogen and texture loading at the correct FSX settings. The key is to always have the CPU to limit you, when it doesen't you'll have to set a FPS lock inside FSX to avoid loosing texture looading and finally autogen loading.

 

3rd question: What affinity mask do you have set? If you set the completely wrong AM you can get blurries.

 

4th queestion: Whhat FiberFrameFractionTimee do you have set? Yet another settting that has the potential to wreck texture and autogen loading if set incorrectly.

 

Your rig is able to give very good texture loading and is capable of full autogen loading in FSX. It might be that the FSX engine is simple not capable of your expectations, but also that some crucial settings are wrong.

Good choice. 780 would be even better, now they can be found cheap

I have 4790k, gtx 780. Both at stock speed.

 

Flying ops mainly in Australia with NGX, ASN and Orbx Australia installed, and Orbx ymml ybbn yscb ymav. Orbx Ai traffic installed. I have highest runway settings In the orbx aero control panel. High settings in FSX for scenery, except autogen is set to dense, and water to 1x. all Ai traffic turned off except airliner and ga traffic, which is set to 25%.

 

Nvidia settings set to pmdg 8xS recommendations in pmdg forum using nvidia inspector. Fps locked to 30.

 

Only time I drop away from 30 fps is on approach to yscb. Drops to 20 fps. Very weird. But it's ok after I land.

 

Max cpu temp is 85 Celsius (for a split second), but average temp whilst playing FSX between 40-60 Celsius (usually 52C). I'm using stock cpu cooler for now, until I can afford a new cpu cooler (I bought a water cooler, but it doesn't fit). Max gpu temp 43C. Max gpu load 38%.

 

I could probably squeeze more out but im happy. I wish I could have GSE/ramp clutter/people flow but smoothness takes a hit, so they're switched off.

 

FSX has seen its time in the sun. Time for a replacement.
