Nvidia Inspector (again)

Recommended Posts

Sorry to ask this, but...

What is the most up to date advice on Nividia Inspector settings now we're on 3.3 etc.

I have shimmering quite badly and I'm trying to get rid of it.

I have the following

Hi Jim,


What size is your monitor? I do not have any noticeable shimmering using a 2560x1440 monitor. Higher resolution monitors do seem to reduce this problem.


Shimmering can be fixed by setting Sparse Grid Super Sampling AA in NI and also  selecting "enhance the application setting" at the same time but it comes at quite a significant performance penalty, especially when clouds are present - and it does not even need to be heavily overcast. Other benefits from this setting is smoother lines on runways and your aircraft, but it is not worth the performance hit in my opinion - and I run what I would like to think is fairly high end hardware. 


Other than the above settings that some are using, I don't think many here on the forums are using NI to configure the graphics driver at all.

Thank Greg,

It's a 22" 1920x1080 monitor. 

I'm just trying those settings now, I used override the application settings before, but I'll see how this works. 

As my eyesight slowly gets worse I'm thinking a big monitor would help! I just need to find the cash.

For the Sparse Grid Super Sampling, try both 2x SGSS and 4xSGSS. Obviously 4 x is much harder on the system, so if 2x works for you, leave it there. Test both with and without clouds to see what kind of impact it has on your system (with regards frame rates).


I do think a monitor change would help a lot. I run a 27 inch now with the 1440 resolution and it was a really good investment, did not cost too much either, equivalent of around $600 I guess. I figured that it is the single most relevant part of the PC - the part you interface with 100% of the time, so made sense to invest on this part just as much as the CPU or graphics card. :-).
