I found the problem, and it wasn't the Northern CA scenery. I have been trying out an ATC Demo program the last couple of days, and on a flight this morning I was approaching a small airport, KSLE, and the FPS started slowing way down again.. I also noticed that the display on the ATC program was jerky, so I went into the Windows Task manager and saw that they ATC program was using over 40% of the processor. Didn't leave much left for P3D and AS16.  I just restarted the flight using my normal ATC program, and flying out of KHWD I got a solid 30 FPS.   default_smile.png

I have started using a program (others here had suggested this to me here) called "Process Lasso"

 

http://download.cnet.com/Process-Lasso-64-bit/3000-2094_4-10925183.html

 

The Saitek Instrument Panel's new driver and program was intruding on my P3D process. So I used this software to assign (affinity) the last 4 processors(of the 8 prcoessorss) to the saitek.EXE.

 

The only issue was, I went overboard and deassigned processors 0 and 1 from all the processes that is not P3D related including Chrome..and this did not go so well. My mouse became too laggy. So now I have done the affinity reassignment only for the saitek exe process. I need to go one by one slowly to see how far I can go with this.

 

This reassigning affinity would stick to the process after your reboot.. so you may want to try this for your ATC process.

I had tried process lasso about a year ago and all it did for me was cause stutters in my audio.

Very nice Bob! Ain't this hobby grand? So glad your in the zone again!

 

As you mentioned I also ditched Process Lasso. I recently installed an Asus STRIX 1080 and it came with GPU Tweak II 

software, always used MSI's Afterburner, it has a Gaming Booster tab that cut services and processes from 65+ to 20.

Sim never ran better!

Safe skies!
