Low fps p3d v3 clouds

Recommended Posts

I using rex soft clouds, asn on pretty maxed settings and when I have clear weather I get up 30 fps but when loading or looking on clouds I get around 15 fps. Pc specs are,     CPU i5 4460 3.2 ghz. GPU gtx 750 2gb ddr, 8gb ram.  CPU using around 70%.

It's a common issue depending upon your AA settings, Try reducing your ASN cloud layers to 3. Your CPU at 3.2 is also not helping - if you can get it up to 4 or more that would help.

You mean I should overklock my cpu? , and I will try with the asn setting

unless I'm mistaken, you cannot overclock that cpu beyond the turbo setting so you're limited with that. However by playing with your settings you should be able to get acceptable performance from your system.

What kinda of AA are you using? I have a 6700K@4.7ghz GTX 970 and I'm using 2xSGSS via NVI and when I get into dense clouds my FPS goes down quick.

I set TEXTURE_FILTERING=8 and MSAA=4 in p3d setting and now I get 15-20 fps in heavy weather and dense clouds. Before i had MSAA=8 and  TEXTURE_FILTERING=16 and get 10-15 fps.

 
I 'm not satisfied yet, I want at least 20fps with about these settings. Can I get it with my system.

I get quite good performance after playing around with the settings. almost high at everything. But I want more from p3d. So maybe tweak the cfg will help. What FIBER_FRAME_TIME_FRACTION should I have and more things I can tweak. 

Thanks
