NVIDIA display setting

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Maybe I'm stating the obvious, but, new to x-plane here.. Changing "Multi-display/mixed GPU acceleration" to "Single display performance mode" provided an great frame rate boost, 50% or so.

Noted this on a GTX970 and a new 1070

I do not think that is your imagination. I changed this setting after reading a post a while back. I have multiple monitors but setting this to single display yielded noticeable improvement. Not 50% for me but probably 5 to 10 fps. I will see if I can dig up a link to the post as it had the why this was the case in it which I do not recall off hand.

Where is the setting please, in the nvidia?

In Windows, right-click on desktop to get menu.  Open nVidia Control Panel.  On the left, under 3D Settings, click on Manage 3D settings.  Click on Program Settings tab.  Choose X-Plane as a single program and make settings there for just X-Plane (not Global Settings tab).

Make sure you select Max performance in power settings as well.

In Windows 10, you have to go into the Windows Control Panel and then into the nVidia Control Panel.

Hey Masaki thanks for your tip. That's a great post for a newbie to XPL! I got a boost of about 6 fps which is welcome since I keep my settings pretty high.

This is wrong...  Sorry... The computer I was using at the time I checked did not have an nVidia card.

Glad it worked for you! It helped me keep shadows at "Global High", I really like this (very expensive) setting.

Another pair of tricks is:

 

1) Under V-Sync, choose 1/2 display rate or whatever suits your monitor, and Vertical Sync tear control to "Adaptive";

2) Make sure you disable Threaded Optimization to "Off" in Nvidia Inspector or Nvidia Control Panel;

 

I usually set X-Plane at HDR, and a AA that my PC supports, and then in Nvidia Inspector also set the mode as "Enhance Application settings", and in SGSS 2xSGSS or 4xSGSS ( usually 2 only )....

 

With this settings I get a stutter-free ride, good AA and 30 fps almost all of the time :-)

Not true.

Well, it is designed mostly to reduce screen tears in fast paced shooters, I don't see the need in flight sim.  Also, it eats lots of frames and adds nothing to my flying experience...

The settings described by The Uninstaller are the only way to get stutter free locked 30 fps gameplay in X-Plane. You will not achieve locked 30fps, (micro-)stutter free gameplay that is free of tearing without VSYNC enabled (the way he described it).

 

Of course you can't see the benefit at all when you fly in the 20-25 fps range.

If you do not mind wavy scenery when you turn your head, you do not need it..
