Every bit as good as AF2! ;-)

Excellent pics!

Maybe with 100 FPS less...

 

Anyway never tried AFS2, how are lights there? Honestly I cannot even think to go back to the fake lights of PR3D but never saw a picture of AFS2 by night.

Nice pics!  

 

What are the specs of the new rig?  How is XP11 treating it (or, vice-versa)?

Nice pics!  

 

What are the specs of the new rig?  How is XP11 treating it (or, vice-versa)?

 

Specs are 6700k clocked at 4.4ghz, 32GB DDR4 RAM, 1080gtx graphics card. I have overclocked my 1080gtx which gives me an extra 2 or 3 fps. I found overclocking my 6700k to 4.6 to make no difference at all. I play in 4k on a 4k tv (60fps capable). I have found that bizarrely I receive approximately the same fps no matter if I run in 1080p, 2k or 4k. In a big city such as Seattle on the runway in the default 737, I get 27 fps with high buildings, shadows on, HDR+SSOA, reflections off (costs me 4fps no matter if I have on low or max), 6 AI traffic around me, Textures on Max, Antialiaising at FXAA 2SS. When I am in the air at altitude, this usually gets to 30 fps in the cockpit and 40-50 in an external view but with a lot of fluctuation.

 

Ironically, if I fly in Dzerwicki Designs (I know I spelled that wrong, forgive me) version of NYC and NYC airports, I still get approximately the same frames.

 

I have checked my CPU and GPU usage and both are not being used much. The CPU is at about 40% whilst clocked at 4.4ghz and when at 4.6ghz it went down the 27% in the same scenario. GPU usage is also only about 40%. This is quite surprising. As a a comparison, when I play Battlefield 1, I can get a solid 60fps most of the time at 4K with the graphics card being used to the max. I know this is like comparing apples with oranges but I still find it bizarre how under utilised both my CPU and GPU are. I used to run an i7 920 and a 970gtx in 2K and decent framerates. I would have thought the jump to the new rig would give me a bit more return, I am happy enough but would like a few more fps to make it a bit smoother.
