Need Help with my FSX performance

Recommended Posts


I recently upgraded my computer and am trying to play fsx. However, it's like ive never upgraded. I still get about 20 fps at small airports and in flight, then 10-12 at major airports or major areas.

I don't understand why. My setting are at ultra for the most part. For the display portion I switched the allowed framerate to stay around 50. Antialaising is on, and i play at trilinear. 


These are my specs: 

   Operating System: Windows 8 Pro 64-bit (6.2, Build 9200) (9200.win8_rtm.120725-1247)
           Language: English (Regional Setting: English)
System Manufacturer: To Be Filled By O.E.M.
       System Model: To Be Filled By O.E.M.
               BIOS: BIOS Date: 07/27/15 17:53:10 Ver: 04.06.05
          Processor: Intel® Core i5-4430 CPU @ 3.00GHz (4 CPUs), ~3.0GHz
             Memory: 8192MB RAM
Available OS Memory: 8128MB RAM
          Page File: 2563MB used, 10171MB available
        Windows Dir: C:\Windows
    DirectX Version: DirectX 11
DX Setup Parameters: Not found
   User DPI Setting: Using System DPI

I appreciate any help.

3.0 GHZ is pretty low powered for "Ultra High" settings and expecting high frame rates at airports if you


are using any amount of AI traffic.

+1. The CPU is just too slow to run FSX with maximum settings. If you want higher framerates you need to move the sliders to the left a bit. The GPU is fine but FSX is all about CPU speed. Unfortunately the i5 4430 can't be overclocked (the multiplier is locked) and maximum turbo speed is only 3.2 GHZ. So...the bottom line is that you're pretty much at maximum performance now and without reducing scenery details what you see is about the best you can expect as far as in-game settings go.
