Anyone running P3Dv4 on a 4790K?

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this should be in the CPU forum. Currently I run a 4790K @ 4.7 and a EVGA FTW 1080 GPU. I'm currently running P3Dv3 with outstanding results and have been thinking of giving v4 a try. I have two options. First option, I have a spare 1tb SSD which I can do a clean install of Windows 10 and install P3Dv4. My drives do not see each other so I don't cross contaminate each other and this allows me to build up one drive while still fly on the other drive. This way I am never down a simulator. The other option is to just go ahead and build up a new system. I've been wanting to build another one and eventually moved the old flight box as a client. I'm leaning towards the 7700K at the moment. Not sure how much of a jump I will see going from 4790K to 7700K. I know v4 is still in the growing process with add-ons so the other drive/box will keep me going as v4 add-ons become available. 

If anyone has feed back or new CPU suggestions I would be grateful. If the 4790K is doing great with v4 than I don't have to worry about extra expenses for now and will just install in the spare drive.

I'm running a 4700k at 4.5ghz with a 1080 and am very happy with the results. Will skip the 7700k and wait another generation or perhaps even two.

I'm running P3D v4 with a i7 4790k (plus a 1070) and i'd say i'm getting slightly improved FPS over v3..

4770K@4.5  w/Titan Black and 32GB memory/EVO Pro 1TB disk.

 

Works just fine.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. Looks like I'll go with clean install on spare drive.

4790 @ 4.0,  GeForce GTX1050Ti, 32 GB RAM. Running great!

I'm running a 4790K @4.6 w/ GTX 980. I also intend on getting a new PC when the native 64-bit add-ons begin to flourish. Whether the 7700K @5 GHz with a 1080Ti will satisfy the power requirements for max settings and lots of native 64 bit add-ons is anybody's guess. For now, as long as I remove the speed trees and dynamic reflections, the 4790K with cores 1-3 topped off and the 980 at approx. 99% it does quite well.

I'm just glad more conversations like this are going to drown out the VAS OOM concerns of the past. :biggrin:

I'm running v4 on an i7-4790k also at 4.7 and it works great, no problems whatsoever!

4790k @ 4.5, paired with EVGA 1080 hybrid and 32GB ram. Works great.

4790K here as well and I'm not planning to make any changes any time soon as v4 is running pretty well so far.

Russ - I just got a new computer with a 7700 @3.6 and a GTX 1050 Ti, so i should expect pretty good performance out of P3d V4? It seems everyone is running with a GTX 1080 or similar, but I got a great deal on the rig i bought that included the GTX 1050 ti. I went with it. I was somewhat hesitant to try v4 due to the video card, but perhaps I should give it a go?

Cheers, Pete

I concur with all the above.  I'm running a 4790 overclocked to 4.5 with a 1080 FTW. Using A2A's 172, and flying around FSDT KCLT with all the Orbx goodies I can I am getting frame rates over 60 - using 4K textures and all of the sliders maxed out  

  I have 3 27" monitors and when I enable them all I still get FR above 40.  With the release of the QOTS-II I am getting steady FR of 26 or better. 

 The only thing I may do is increase the ram from 16 to 32 GB but not sure if that is warranted.

You may have to play with the sliders,  but it should run pretty well.

MHO, of course!

I'm running a 4820K overclocked to 4.5Ghz with a Titan X (Maxwell). I am pretty happy with the results. I find that dynamic lighting and dynamic reflections impose a huge performance hit, so I have both turned off at the moment.

I just picked up a 4960X from eBay for $225. (Not bad for a processor which costs >$1000 when it was brand new in 2013) This will increase my thread count from 8 to 12. (hyperthreading on) Hopefully, the additional cores improve performance. (in theory, it should) I did notice v4 puts a heavy load on all cores and pushes the GPU much harder.

I'll let you know how it goes if anyone is interested.

i have 2 1TB SSD installed in my system. When I hold down F8 in boot I can select which drive I want to boot too. It's like the old Dual Boot method. One drive has Win7 64 and the other has Win10. This way I can keep flying on one drive as I build up the other. I did this when I was flying FSX on one drive and building up P3D on the other. Once I fully moved over to P3Dv3 I wiped the FSX drive and in the process of putting a clean install of Win10 and P3Dv4. I also have a 500gb SSD as a storage drive which both 1TB can see so I can access my installer files and downloads. This prevents  me from screwing up anything.

Not really sure what you mean with "my drives don't see each other"... Drives don't see anything.  Your OS does. And if you have 2 disks installed both of them will be visible by the OS.

I went into disk management and removed the drive letter from the second 1TB so it will not show up in Windows Explorer. Yes I know the OS can see it in disk managment but I isolated it so Windows does not see it with a drive letter or access unless I go in and add a drive letter. Next time I'll be more clear. As far as my windows is concerned there separate from each other. I can wipe one OS and not effect the other.

Wow, I feel like an oldie!  Mine is running with an ancient i7-2700K Oc. 4.8 Ghz and a GTX980.  Performance gain for me versus V3 has been phenomenal, finally smooth flight with ORBX and FSDT.  So go ahead and stick with yours for a while yet.  You will be seeing an even bigger jump than I saw with mine.  Perhaps in 1-2 years I will upgrade, but right now I am just fine.

If that's non k cpu then may want to try turning on sync all cores or similar in BIOS, its mild overclock type of thing but allows for much stable turbo boost and puts all cores to 4ghz which may help with smoothness in the sim. At default setting fluctuates a lot and averages to much lower frequency while with this turned on all cores average at ~3.9 ghz in hwinfo.

i would upgrade, not only because the cpu, but the chipset with native nvm-e m.2 support, i don't even have a physical hardrive connected to my computer, i have using 3 1tb m.2's now, 2 in raid 0 and one in my pci-e slot.also the ddr4 is a plus higher capacity ram on a single ram stick.i delidded my own 7700k at 5.2ghz with an asus maximus code 9. i replaced my tim with liquid medal and keep a max temp of 64c under full load. you can take your new ddr4 with you to your next build. i just put this together 2 months ago and selling my cpu and board at the end of the month for the 8 or 10 core I9.the 8 and 10 cores come out of the box with a turbo boost of 4.5ghz 8 core and 4.3 ghz 10 core. i upgrade every cycle not because of the cpu, but because of the features that come on the boards, i plan on running 5-6 m.2's on the new rig. just my opinion.

The upcoming  x299 chipset based cpu' s you are taking about will have 4.5 ghz only on 2 automatically selected cores by Intel turbo boost 3.0 , rest of the six cores remain on 4.3 max (with turbo boost 2.0).

All this is without overclocking offcourse ..

Lets Hope they clock well ! 

 

Kind regards

I'm very happy with my 4790K @ 4.6GHz (Paired with a GTX 970.) still for Prepar3D v3 & v4. I duplicated my v3 settings to the best that I could in v4, and I get about the same if not slightly higher in v4. Even though fps is the same in some areas I feel like in v4 is that it's much smoother and I get more value for the FPS hit in settings. I'm still tweaking things, but the 4790K still has a good IPC for Prepar3D.
