thinking of cross-grading from R290 to a 770/780

Recommended Posts

Clouds can severely reduce the fps in P3D with my R290 4G card

 

Would cross-grading/upgrading? to a GTX 770/4G be better in rendering regular fps?

 

P3D24 ONLY

I think you might be better off thinking about a GTX970 to see any real improvement.

Most P3D users seem to have to use sparse grid transparency supersampling to avoid shimmers

and that can have a big negative effect on frame rates in clouds.

 

I have the R290 and I always thinks it does pretty well in clouds.

What settings are you using?

yeah

 

I did mean to type 970 but got constiboutilated

 

<_<

Perhaps I was mistaken by the impact of the Carenado Citation II for which users are now reporting fps dips

 

 

yet my motive for asking was simply that many are insisting the GTX series to outperforms ATI in FSX/P3D significantly

 

So was considering...

If you are comparing in P3D, I wager a 290 and a GTX 780ti will run about the same at similar settings in identical tests. In FSX AA will be a bit sharper with nVidia using 4xSGSS versus ATI 4xSSAA.

 

Care to share your AA and AF settings?

 

Also another carenado plane that sucks in p3d is the B1900. In FSX I can lock at 40 fps running laps around KHQM in ORBX scenery. In P3D, 18 - 22.

 

If you make the switch, let us know if there was an improvement.

Is that with supersampling?
