Incredible FPS performance with .35b1!

Recommended Posts

Here's a picture around Phoenix, Arizona.

 

I have  Andras's UHD in play, and SkyMaxx Pro decked right out...and giving me fabulous metrics.  I have picked up 2 FPS in this area, only by having gone to the latest beta.  I normally get between 27-29, pre beta, but now am getting in the same area, 29-31.  Has anybody else noticed a slight bump in performance? Did they tweak some slight file structure?  I read the release notes, but who knows...when they play around with the platform....but whatever...great performance as you can see in the top left, for the cloud sets...the great UHD mountains in the background...and some of the best flying, yet!  XPX ROCKS!

Post Edit:  Wait a minute!  It could be also (actually, probably is...) the latest nVidia driver suite, that also fixes the PAPI lights in P3D.  I started using that yesterday..and then downloaded and installed .35b1.    Yeah...it's probably the new driver set:

 

347.52

Never looked at the framerates because that's not a problem for me, but I did update to 10.35r1 and 347.52 drivers.  No glitches, no problems.

Same here...just on my way to KLAX from Phoenix, Sky Harbor...at 14,000 AGL....great sky, great clarity...the driver and the beta are having a field day!

I've updated to the beta and the latest drivers and it is very smooth on my GTX 970.

 

I am running all the Sydney scenery, clouds, along with Aerowinx PSX and it is a beautiful sight to behold. I will post a video soon :)

Is it my perception or the world detail distance way of working changed? I mean the streets now fade faster when you're getting away of any given group of streets. Perhaps this is helping to improve a lot the fps.

What is this "Mr. X", are those paywares? Could you post the link?  Thanks

I believe it will be released as freeware like KSFO, KSAN? 

Thanks.  Very nice indeed, can't wait.  I will then finally ditch the free "payware" KLAX that was given to me free when I bought the FF 777.  I don't know who made that one, but the performance is terrible.

I cannot say for sure, but it seems to me on  that on the next selection from the "highest" I could see the downtown high rises in Seattle when taking off to the north from KSEA, but now I cannot.

 

You may be on to something as this would certainly provide a boost. Maybe they made a change and did not document it?  :ph34r:

I can't wait until there's an XP version that finally addresses this sort of stuff.

I know they said 10.3 & now 10.4 (and maybe XP11 - who knows).....Can't happen soon enough.

 

Makes such a huge difference in certain regions to see (or not see) certain major landmarks in the distance.

I am not really sure where they draw the line between 10 and 11.   XPx is a project, and from a engineering point of view should be well managed, meaning they already must know what is in and what is out, in addition to fixing whatever bugs popup, with regards to time and scope. 10 at this point IMO has a skeleton crew to some degree and "the money" part is being watched like a hawk!

At this point I'm sort of hoping they've turned the corner internally towards XP11 - It's just sort of time to modernize on several fronts (like # of weather layers as an example)
