Graphics

Recommended Posts

Hello! I have FSX SE and my graphics are not great to put it like that, but they are not rubbish. I don't know if it has anything with my cpu to do or not, but on my sceneries pretty much everything is like blurry!

 

Specs:

GeForce GTX 970

Intel® Core™ I5-6400 CPU @ 2.70 GHZ

16 GB RAM

1920x1080, 60 Hz

FSX is much more reliant on the CPU than the GPU and 2.7Ghz is really not that fast. The 970 is more than enough for FSX but you're almost certainly being limited by your CPU.

What slider settings are you using within FSX?, I used to run FSX on an old dual core and an Ati 4870 for a couple of years with pretty much locked 30fps and smooth but you have to be sensible with the sliders

Thanks for the tip! And does anyone know how i get my FSX to be like smooth and not blurry things all over the place?

And what difference does GHZ make?

GHZ=Gigahertz=Speed....."I feel the need....the need for speed".  It might be helpful, or at least interesting if you

 

would/could post one screenshot of your "blurry all over the place".   Are you running default scenery?  How are your

 

scenery sliders set?  You might be interested to know that my system is a 2GHZ processor with 2GB memory and

 

I have very little blurriness when running.

Hello johan(?),

Your rig should run fine with FSX, When was the last time You did a virus Scan, Malware Scan, Cleaned Out Your Caches, and did a good Old "Defrag". When People tell You that You Don't have to do a defrag, its only 1%, Think about it, what is 1% of a Gigillion, that's a lot of bytes, and its is Exactly where You use Your drive the most! Also, if You want to Cutback on one more Hamburger, try a little Program called FSX BoostSpeed, +-$10.00 US, Prepare to be Amazed. Then Here is a Great Site to Check out - "Kostas Flight Sim World" - People around Here Don't seem to like Him much, but he has some Really Good Information Regarding  Tweaking Your Rig, You can eat a Hamburger while Reading !!

You do need a good cpu for FSX, I think. Also, a few tweaks will help and using the nvidia inspector will improve things.

With he cpu you have, you need to find the right compromise...

All the best
