High GPU load using PMDG777 in P3DV3.2

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

i just want to say that using my Immersion in the T7 makes my SLI jump from 60% to 85-90% in external view over desert and without clouds in FL360.

 

Looking in the direction of the rear makes it jumb. Using as always only 4XMSAA inside P3D. 

 

I never noticed this perfermance issue with other versions.

 

Driver is 353.30

 

Thanks

Contrails in 777 Immersion are much denser than default contrails. We also take advantage of the fact that there aren't many things to load up there compared to low altitude flying.

 

We are planning on doing an update on 777 Immersion, giving you options for this kind of stuff. 

 

Reducing AA would definitely help performance-wise.

 

Do you have an FPS impact?

I get the feeling that 3.2 has changed alot for 3thd party addons . :wink:

 

And yes FPS is about the half. From 122 to 62 (looking from front to behind) over desert at FL 360.

 

Thanks

We'll have a look into that when we design the 777 Immersion update ;)

Fsx me too loose about 3 frames when contrails set in! See my post "performane"

 

Would be nice to have the feature for shorter contrails like on the 737

 

By the way, i have for a long time now deactivated the rainbow.fx effect because it doesn't work correctly!

Does the same frame loss appear if you can't see the contrails?  I rarely set foot outside of the cockpit.

If you aren't looking at the contrails, performance will be better than if you are looking at them. 

Obviously all of this depends on what configuration you are running it on.

Effects like Contrails are generated on the CPU in FSX and the GPU in P3D.
