Is my system ok for P3d v4?

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I have a jetline systems computer I purchased in 2016 and currently run v3.3 which runs well. I get low to mid teen fps with certain overcast conditions with REX enhanced  but otherwise no issues. I am looking to upgrade to v4 and was curious of my current set up can handle it ok? I fly mostly PMDG NGX over megascenery but to use orbx global and vector at times as well. 

Win 7 64bit

Intel 4th Gen icore 7 4790 (was overclocked to 4.6ghz but I returned to stock cuz I was having issues)

8GB Hyper X DDR3 SDRAM 2133mhz

4GB Nvidia Geforce GTX 970

 

Thank you for your time

Dave

Hi Dave, you system will run it fine. If you don't want to upgrade components, I would recommend that you try and find a stable overclock for your 4790 as that will make a significant difference in performance (the CPU will become a bottleneck for your 970...).

Thank you Dylan, I will look into the overclocking. At some point I do hope to upgrade my 970

Dave, asking for opinions here is fine but the definitive answer is the LM P3D System Requirements at their website: https://www.prepar3d.com/system-requirements/

My Win7 4790K ran P3D fine..., you will need to balance performance and quality.  I have my 4790K in a stable OC, but each build is different.  You might want to take advantage at least of the stock 4.4 GHz turbo options.  I am still using my 980Ti with very good results.

I run a 4770K (OC 4.4GHz) with a 980TI SLI. P3dv4.1 runs really well for me. As Dan mentioned "you will need to balance performance and quality" is key.

Fly safe

Thank you everyone for the replies. The main theme seems to be overclocking the cpu which I will for sure look to do. Excited to move on to 64bit

Thank you,
