FPS increase with simple change of NVIDIA setting

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Not my finding and using the words of maski in the X-Plane forums in the below link: "Maybe I'm stating the obvious..."

 

http://www.avsim.com/topic/493478-nvidia-display-setting/

 

Instructions in the thread.

 

It increased my fps by 8-10 in e.g. Orbx KFHR, 74S and KBVS in FSX Gold, nVidia GTX780, 4790k 4.3 GHz, single monitor.

 

Hope some of you will enjoy a better running sim just as I do!

 

Best regards

 

Ernst

Wow. I had no idea, but I used to follow Nick's instructions...

Probably didn't pay much attention.

 

Just made the change. Let's see how it goes.

 

Thanks.

Just to make sure I understand, the recommendation is to set up the Nvidia profile for Single display performance mode even if you are using multiple monitors -- correct?

 

Another question is "what do we mean here by multiple monitors"?  I only use a single monitor for the FSX display, but I do use a second monitor to display associated information provided by Plan-G. So in the context of FSX and the above Nvidia recommendation, is this considered a single or multiple monitor situation?

 

Thx,

Al

I run multi monitor setup for this exact purpose too and would like to also know. I am not a triple screen setup, but 2. One for my main sim and the 2nd display for all my apps such as PFPX, ASN, etc.

My P3D sim is running on a triple screen setup and changing the value mentioned above to single monitor doesn't do anything for me. What makes me laugh is that somehow people always suddenly seem to find a magical trick on how to gain 5-10fps more with a simple tweak but none haven't worked for me yet, even in FSX times. I must be doomed..

 

EDIT: Apparently this only works for OpenGL. As P3D/FSX runs on DirectX, no win for us guys.
