LOW FPS on high pc spec

Recommended Posts

1. 1000 gb hard drive

2. i7 4790 (4.00 GHZ)

3. NVidia GTX 750 TI (2 gb)

4. Ram 8 

5. Asus mother board (Z97-K)

6. Window 7 home premium

7. 64 bit
8. Power supply 650 wat

 

I get about 17 FPS at vtbs (A_A scenary) on VC, especially the pmdg 777

 

but this low every time in most of my plane.

 

Please help me fix it,

 

p.s. already tweak my FSX too though.

Yeah seems about right for your system. If you want more FPS, turn down settings.

can't i make it higher with out chaging my setting?

p.s. my setting is about midium though.

 

not max. XD

Maybe a good memory like 2400 Mhz or higher, an SSD HD and overclocking (coupled with liquid cooling) could help...

1. 1000 gb hard drive
2. i7 4790 (4.00 GHZ) <<< overclock?
3. NVidia GTX 750 TI (2 gb)  <<< GTX760 should be the absolute minimum
4. Ram 8 
5. Asus mother board (Z97-K)
6. Window 7 home premium
7. 64 bit
8. Power supply 650 wat

 

17-18 fps is actually OK on the ground at a payware airport. As long as it is smooth and not stuttering, FPS should not really matter.

No. Lowering settings such as Autogen and traffic should be the first thing to do. Also, don't run super high levels of AA. 4x I think would be your max with that card.

There's a few settings in the performance tab you could try (PMDG setup->Options->Performance).

 

Terr image detail: Low

Terr image size: 256

Terr dither colors: yes

 

Not sure what "terr sweep" does, but it probably eats up CPU cycles, so I would turn it off.

 

Perhaps turn off the FO display as well.

I have played with these settings before and they make little or no difference to FPS (maybe 1-2 FPS Max). I run it at the highest settings here perfectly fine.

I am perfectly happy with 18-22 fps as long as there's no stutter and the animation is smooth.  Don't dwell on that number, simply changing your [TEXT.2] entry to display average frame rate reveals how much this number varies inside the application and the number you see on the screen is a very damped value.

 

For the OP, I have very similiar system. Forget the suggestion to buy SSD or more memory, plain hogwash.  However, you can use Process Explorer to look at how your cores are loaded and how much the GPU is working.... odds are they are just coasting and there's just not much you can do other than make very minor changes.

Follow the Nvidia Inspector guide pinned at the top of this forum,

 

Then tweak your settings accordingly...

 

I have an i5 4670k oc'd to 4.2, and SLI 770's (which doesn't help in FSX for performance, but they drive 3 monitors). 

 

I run my scenery settings on a medium tier. It seems to be the water effects, as well as autogen that seem to affect it the most. I run my water settings at high 1x and autogen at normal.

 

I usually get around 30-40 fps in dense areas (at 5760x1080), and usually around 60-80 fps in cruise.

 

My overclock also helped improve my FPS significantly - not sure if that is an option with your processor & cooling assembly.

I am toying with replacing my processor from an i7 4770 to an i7 4790K as,ming my motherboard support that would I see an improvement in performance?

If its from an i7 4770 and not an i7 4770K, then you will have the change to overclock your 4790K CPU. The gain in FPS from running stock 3.5 ghz to OCed 4.4-4.6 ghz is quite remarkable.

Thank you, I will try and research if my motherboard will support it.  It is currently a stock HP envy device, so I am not too hopeful.  Would overlocking be done in the BIOS or by other means.  I imagine I would have to improve cooling too, although I have already beefed my Power supply to 650watts, they never come strong enough.

Actually I have used it for years and have always been satisfied with the outcome. ;-)

The bufferpools tweak can increase performance on some systems, and take other systems to their knees. It's not to be used lightly.

That's why you fill in the system information pull down list's. If you give the correct information it will give you a great FSX config. Things you don't want just remove.  SIMPLE.

Wrong, it puts the bufferpool tweak no matter the system. It is best to do all the tweaking manually so that you understand what each tweak does so that if something has a negative impact, you can remove the tweak causing it. Using that tool will not help you at all in this case. If you take the time to read NickN's guide (you can skip all the windows/hardware stuff and go straight to the FSX tweaks. I'm sure he knows more about the back end of FSX than the other guy who has mysteriously disappeared....), he quite clearly explains every tweak and which ones actually help and others that do not. He also explains how some of the tweaks in that auto config tool (which btw is 5 years old...) do not help and can even negatively impact your system, even if you did pick your system. So thank you very much it is NOT SIMPLE at all, unless you can't be bothered reading two pages of text and are looking for a quick fix (when has there ever been a quick fix for FSX? Good joke!).

 

Here's a comparison. Using a FSX.cfg created by your "simple" tool, I am lucky to get 10 FPS in the 777 VC in any situation at all, whether it's cruising, at an airport (addon or default) etc. It is literally a slide show.

 

Using a manually set up FSX.cfg following NickN's guide, I get minimum 20FPS in 777 VC at Aerosoft's Heathrow airport. 

 

Exact same settings, just difference in the tweaks.

 

Bit of a difference..........

Changing your CPU to a 4790K will not allow you to overclock because HP will have locked the bios.

I posted the same problem in another topic in this forum.  I compared the performance in FSX to P3D and found P3D wanting.  It appears to me that there is a speed wall in P3D on my system which has no problem running FSX.
