Frames Per Second

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I recently bought Prepar3d v4 and installed it. However when I started it, all I had was 6 fps on average. Here is my PC specs:

13" MacBook Pro with retina display

Intel core I5 processor 6th generation at 2.7 GHz

Intel Iris Graphics 6100 1536 MV gpu

8GB 1867 DDR3 RAM.

 

Now what I am planning to do is that I am planning to buy one external gpu which will get connected to this notebook through a thunderbolt 2 port.

Nvidia GTX 980 will be used by me. But I am unsure of the performance which Ill be getting.

 

However on youtube it shows that it makes the notebook extremely powerful and also the FPS are increased considerably.


Please let me know what you guys think.

P3Dv4 can install with some settings in place that will seriously impact performance.

Initial things to try:-

In the settings / graphics screen, turn off "Dynamic Lighting" on the left side of the screen.  On the right side of the screen turn down the "Visual effects" to half way.

Also in the settings / lighting settings page, try turning off HDR (check box on the top left) - at least temporarily so you can see if that's causing your problem.

AI traffic in the settings / traffic page should also be set low or off - again at least until you can get the frame rates up and then start slowly bringing up the things that are important to you.

Good luck!

Hi,

Thanks for the reply JYW, but I've already tried that. No matter whatever settings I use, the impact on performance will majorly be dependent on the GPU. Isn't it?

Hi,

Yes, you're right it will.  It may be the case that the onboard GPU in your lap top just isn't suitable for a demanding application like P3Dv4.   I'm sure your planned upgrade of the GPU would make a big difference.
