I am still using 4th generation i5 on v4

5 posts in this topic

 

I was pretty amazed how still 4th generation of core i5 shows a stable 60fps.

 Of course, I have to turn off AI traffic and lower scenery configuation, 

turn AA to off FXAA OFF, for addon airports,

with world and scenery HD lightning everything sets to off

and scenery density set to normal.  PMDG runs normal,but, 

I have to fly alone by myself at the airport, if I turn the AI traffic it shows a 10~15fps.   also I can't use heavy addon sceneries.  

 if I upgrade to 7th generation CPU's,

it'll perform much better, but I think I am going to wait little bit more or if I can't wait then I'll just grab ryzen 7.

What GPU do you have? That's probably your limiting factor. An i5-4770K should run P3D v4 without too many compromises.

Cheers!

MSI GTX 960 4GB OC.  Still a very reliable card.

I even thought about downgrading to my 3770k because it was one that had won the silicon lottery. My 6700k cant achieve a stable 4.5 GHz overclock but the 3770k ran 4.5 GHz on air without any problem. Would be interesting to see if I can get even more out of it on water cooling.
