FSX Poor Performance High End PC

Recommended Posts

Hello.. I need some Help!..

My FSX seems to have an unusual issue..I have look everywhere! but can't seem to find a solution,,

When parked at airport gate my FSX runs smooth with Default aircraft i get a steady 28-30FPS (locked at 30)

when I fly with default FSX aircraft same I get steady frames..

When I Try to load my PMDG 777.. My frames drop hard... When Parked I get 25-14FPS (30 locked)

When I'm flying I the frames will be bouncing around 28-24FPS and THEN!>> it just drops to 5-3FPS for like 3sec and then back up to 28-24FPS..

I have tried looking around to find a solution and can't seem to find any.. I NEED SOMEONE's  HELP!..

 

PC SPECS:

AMD FX-9590 Eight-core processor 4.70Ghz

16GB RAM

64-Bit

 

Graphics card..

AMD Radeon R9 270X  (2GB)

Hi,

 

i am not an FSX expert, had till P3D hit the shelfs. FSX just do not lke the AMD I learned that when i built my first high end flight sim PC. Intel+nVidia is the way to go. I know that this info wont help you for now.

 

Did you try to let FSX to rebuilt a new cfg and work your way from there? Did you use any other HQ scenery or weather add ons?

Those sort of FPS seem reasonable to me in a PMDG aircraft, and are similar to what I get in the NGX (I don't have the 777 yet). I can't explain what's causing the sudden dip to single figures every few seconds, except maybe check if the autosave feature is enabled in FSUIPC if you have it?

Hi,

 

AMD cards can lead to variable performance with FSX.However many user get them to work.

 

Have you as a starting point read through the documentation which came with the777 and followed the advice from PMDG re your settings in FSX.?

Two things to try.

 

1. When running complex aircraft like the 777 that take up a lot of processing power, try running FSX with unlimited frames rather than locked. For some people, myself included, this works better.

 

2. Back up your FSX.cfg or move it do the desktop and let FSX build a new one. Then add only the Highmemfix=1 and try the sim. I noticed some Bojote tweaks in your cfg that might not be necessary.

 

Remember that planes like the PMDG 777 are gong to take up more processing power than default planes and it will be expected that you may need to lower other settings to accommodate them. Also AMD video cards aren't known to usually be great for FSX or P3D especially in clouds.

FSX goes good with Intel,Nvidia (unfortunately combo AMD CPU & GPU does not provide FSX good performance)

I Deleted the FSX.cfg.. Even Re-installed FSX completely!!..

The only add on I have is .. REX +overdrive 

and the PMDG

And what were the results?

 

The cfg you posted must have been an older one judging by the procspeed values in it if your running at 4.7 ghz.

 

Your virus scanner could be causing the intermittent drops on FPS if your not using FSUIPC auto save. Exclude FSX from your virus scanner and see if that helps.

I ran ATI cards with FSX for many years with excellent performance.  Try using Ansio in FSX and turning off AA in CCC. 

 

Now, I believe where your processor is concerned, there are two issues at work.

 

1. FSX doesn't see anything more than 4 cores (8 logical), and even with 4 cores or 8 logical it's been proved by Dovetail Games that some of the processing threads get repeated (processed) thus hurting performance.  I'm not sure how I would approach that with your processor.

 

2. At least with i7's, turning Hyperthreading off (I forget what it's called with ATI) is beneficial for many users, you may want to try this.

 

Hope this helps!

I set the FRAMES to unlimited and not seeing any changes.. still getting 25-18FPS in the 777 PMDG cockpit

It's not the AMD card. It's the 777. You have to move the sliders a bit (lot?) to the left with this aircraft.

Are you measuring on a default- or a specific add-on airport?  Default airports should not eat up a lot of FPS.

I Deleted my FSX.cfg and let FSX create a new one..

 

ProcSpeed=7234

 

Somethings not right with your overlock. You stated that your running at 4.70 ghz but yet your procspeed values that FSX generates when you have it build a new cfg don't reflect anything close to th processor speed you are suggesting. I run at 3.85 ghz and FSX generates a procspeed for me around 13000 or so from memory. Your numbers suggest your processor is running around 3.00 ghz which would be one of the reasons your FPS aren't better.

I'm 90% certain that FSX doesn't even know his cores above 4 (0-3) are there, which might very well account for the processor speed.

I don't know. I've seen a lot of cfgs posted by people running dual and quad cores clocked over 4ghz and FSX seems to have recognized that theirs were running faster than what the OP posted by the procspeed numbers in their cfgs.

 

Granted that number doesn't do anything for the sim, but my comment was more for the OP that he might want to verify that he is actually overclocked and not running at stock speeds.

How are your cores set up?

4.7 on all of them or each individually?

You can set up which core FSX will use.

I'm on intel clocked to 4.7 and I'm maxing 50 fps when flying PMDG stuff.

Ground never goes below 20 and I use 35% air traffic.

Somethings not right with your overlock. You stated that your running at 4.70 ghz but yet your procspeed values that FSX generates when you have it build a new cfg don't reflect anything close to th processor speed you are suggesting. I run at 3.85 ghz and FSX generates a procspeed for me around 13000 or so from memory. Your numbers suggest your processor is running around 3.00 ghz which would be one of the reasons your FPS aren't better.

 

I haven't changed anything in my cfg file.... 

What do u suggest i try???

What needs to be done??

can you guide me on setting up the core to run FSX smoothly??

Are you actually letting FSX generate a new cfg or are you just taking the same cfg file and removing all the tweaks?

I would put all my money on the card as the issue. The performance seems to reflect what I was finding with my system with AMD card prior to upgrading to a nVidia card. Card alone took performance through the roof compared to what I was getting with the AMD card on my system. OP's current system specs and fps mentioned in the opening post are very much what I would expect.

To improve performance, my suggestions would be:

1. Try different drivers in the hope one of them might produce magic
2. Buy a decent nVidia card
3. Switch to FS9 (My personal fav suggestion, don't know what I'm even doing in this forum really! lol)

I completely delete it and let FSX generate a new one..

the only line i add is the

[GRAPHICS] 

HIGHMEMFIX=1

and im not getting more then 35FSP (unlimited) inside or outside cockpit 

and my PC is factory clocked at 4.70Ghz...and  my Graphics card is apparently a very good one 

AMD Radeon R9 270X  (2GB).. 

I've did two test.. 

 

Test ONE.

Using 747 Default plane, using REX WEATHER no traffic..

While parked at Airport cockpit view i was getting 40-30FPS

while taxing I was getting 40-30FPS

I flew for 20 mins with FRAMES set to unlimited i was getting a 60-30FPS no hiccups..

 

Test Two

Using 747 PMDG, REX WEATHER no traffic.

While parked cockpit view I was getting 28-14FPS

While taxing I was getting 30-20FPS, but every time I take a turn frames dropped to low as 2 FPS!.. 

I did a flight for 20 mins same route as first test ...same weather conditions no traffic Frames set to unlimted ..

After take off I was getting around 35-23FPS .. and then 5-6 mins after take off, Frames start dropping to as low as 5-3 FPS for about 2 sec..and it keeps happening like every 45-30 sec.

I don't know what's causing the lose of FPS.. 

I uninstalled and re-installed both 747-777 PMDG but nothing changed.. 

I would put all my money on the card as the issue. The performance seems to reflect what I was finding with my system with AMD card prior to upgrading to a nVidia card. Card alone took performance through the roof compared to what I was getting with the AMD card on my system.

3. Switch to FS9 (My personal fav suggestion, don't know what I'm even doing in this forum really! lol)

 

 

So u saying the AMD Radeon R9 270X  is not a good graphics card?

It might not be at the top of the line but it should run things pretty smooth..

Have you excluded FSX from your virus scanner as I suggested earlier? That could explain the low FPS for those short periods if your virus scanner is scanning FSX.

 

You say the computer is factory overclocked to 4.7 ghz. What company made it and overclocked it? That seems like a very aggressive overclock coming from a "factory".

 

Can right click on your Computer icon on the desktop, then select properties and post a screen shot where it shows your processor and the speed it's running at.

Well it looks like the overclock is true. I'm guessing your procspeed values are low since your CPU is at or near idle speed when your FSX cfg is generated.

 

I'll ask again, have you excluded FSX from your virus scanner as I suggested earlier? That could explain the low FPS for those short periods if your virus scanner is scanning FSX.

 

Also, have you tried any of the affinitymask tweaks for running 4 or 8 core processors? You might want to search here or google for appropriate affinity mask values for your cfg for your rig. That can sometimes help the studders.

I do not have any anti virus running.. n'or have FSUIPC auto saving...

I've tried running FSX with no affinitymask...

I tried adding line affinitymask=14

and also tried affinitymask=84 as suggested by some sites...no big change.. still getting those low 5-3FPS hiccups after 5-10mins in flight...

I ran FSX on a low end PC.. 2.4GHz 8GB RAM same settings as now..with a GT630 graphics... Never had hiccups with FRAMES at 35-20 FPS...

Its just weird a High end system clocked at 4.7Ghz isn't capable to perform as a low end or medium end PC..

I'm seeing people videos and blog running 3.0-4.0Ghz PC and it's nothing compared to what I'm experiencing.. not able to keep FSX run smooth with PMDG planes...

I don't know if it's FSX causing this or PMDG Planes...
