CPU and texture resolution in V4

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I saw a thread but cannot find it that was explaining the benefits changing ground resolution from 7cm to 1m?

Offcause this is not in ORBX world related

Thanks Michael Moe

When I increase texture resolution to 1m it is less demanding for the GPU (GTX 970), it does not make noticeable difference for the CPU (i7 4970k at 4.4GHz). I use 60cm because I get stutters when going to 7cm.

If I observe CPU core loading in Windows Task Manager, I see a big difference between 1 m and 7 cm resolution.

But, the photo real textures near airports (like parking lots) lose a great deal of detail with 1m resolution.. so, as so often, it is a trade-off.  Luckily, you can change this in the simulator, so flying with 1m resolution until you come to a spot where you would like the higher detail (if at all) works for me  :happy:

Yeah thanks,

 

I was fidling around with a flight EGKK-LEBL with high resolution textures on in my PMDG737 NGX with HT ON (which clearly makes full potiential of the CPU usuage (but also 80% more temps ) as the ground textures is so much better.

I do get stuttering which i blame my very high CPU temps( above 90c sometimes ) and if my VRAM exceeds 4GB (in EGKK - not in LEBL)

I did not noticed much different in CPU load between 7CM and 1M btw. Maybe it is situation related ?

 

Thanks

Something wrong there. Should not be that high.
