P3D3.4 small performance test with Win.10 Creator

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Had some spare time today and desided to take the plunge updating W10 and P3DV3 from 3.4.9 to 3.4.22

Here are some small first observations in 4K, SLI (2 x GTX970,) , I7-4770K@4,7 HT off, today 12.00 local time no weather engines

 

 

Windows 10 64 bit latest build before 11.4.17

4K

Test 1

SLI
373.06 - 3.4.9
FT EKCH A 20 - NGX - 
45- 46 FPS VC

VAS remain 1176272

 

Test 2

SLI
373.06 - 3.4.22
FT EKCH A 20 - NGX -
45-46FPS VC
62/49%

VAS remain 1164632

 

Test 3
SLI
381.65 - 3.4.22
FT EKCH A 20 - NGX -

Windows 10 Creators update (without Game mode activated)

Test 1

FT EKCH A 20 - NGX -

Windows 10 Creators update (WITH Game mode activated)

This seems in line with other preliminary reviews that have been posted online. Neither game mode nor the new 381.xx drivers have any impact on P3d. And game mode not recommended for XP11, so I'm going to wait until more reviews show up.

Yeah it also seems to almost freeze my system upon exiting P3D having game mode activated. 

So no magic here  (also tested single GTX970) with simular results

Game Mode is designed for programs that require no other EXE files to be running simultaneously. This presently rules out the use of the GTN 750 gauges in both XP11 and P3d. I am assuming from reading this thread about the GTN that ATC, AI Traffic and weather injector addons that run as a separate executable file will also suffer the same fate. Someone may want to experiment with combining game mode and affinity mask to see if that helps.

Tested and well removed the creators update FPS was worse (-10 fps)  :(

(system I7 -6700K with GTX 1070 and 16 gb ram)

Staggering amount of services running in the background from before the update around 50 to after the update 120 :blink:

That wasn't working out also fine with the FSLABS bus...

Something may be wrong with your setup Awf - better resource usage on my systems (including an older HTPC and Surface).
