CPU and GPU Workload

Recommended Posts

I'm currently having a great time trying out the fully new and improved P3DV4. I did my first full flight start to finish from SFO to MSP in the PMDG 747 using flightbeams airports and FTX global scenery. The experience is the best I've ever had, no blurries, no stutters and no dings.

But my 6700k CPU usage sat around 70% or more and my TXp GPU sat around the same although it had peaked at 100% at some point. CPU Core 1 seems to cop it the most where as core 2 gets very little use. 

Im not going to tweak anything because I think LM's got everything running pretty sweet in V4.

But I do wonder how long my computer is going survive this torture??? Especially when more airports get updated to V4 and I start doing 14hour flights everywhere.

Yep - Your first core has a lot of non-P3D stuff running on it along with P3D stuff.  It is like picking a sore - don't mess with it.  Let the OS do the separation of tasks thing.  If it needs more ops it will move to another core.
