You could overclock more but that's about it.  After all these years P3D is still demanding on the first core.

Can be improved to some effect but will involve time, testing and (a lot of) patience :-). This is what works for me and I have a low/mid-end PC.

  1. If you are having issues, disable/uninstall any legacy addons - you can always add them in later once your configuration is stable;
  2. Reset to defaults for your in-Sim P3D settings;
  3. If running any variants of P3D v4, for your P3D.config, remove any Affinity Mask settings, if enabled in your config file and add in the P3D Tweaks - from Lockheed Martin User Manual > Learning Centre > Advanced Configuration (you can eliminate the AM setting described here);
  4. Load SIM and check various aircraft types with the default settings in place - the goal is to check that the SIM is fluid. If stutters are obvious at default settings, and based on your hardware config, check for updated drivers fro your VGA/MB or rollback to a previous version if available i.e. one at a time to facilitate trouble-shooting and fault-finding;
  5. If hardware and default settings are ok, progressively update your addons, if available, as some are bug fixes and/or enhancements/improvements. This is more of a difficult step as we tend to prefer leaving things alone if it ain't broken :-). But it will be your choice, going forward;
  6. Progressively adjust in-Sim settings to your preference using various aircraft addons first, then you can progressively  introduce other addons such as ActiveSky, REX SkyForce etc.
  7. Re-adjust in-SIM settings and make sure that you test system load during both day and night scenarios (P3D Time-Preview functionality is a great help here)
  8. The only recommendation that I would have for your system is probably a CPU upgrade - I'm looking at an upgrade within the next few months but current GPU prices is forcing me to be creative with current config i7 4790K stock with Turbo-Boost/GTX980 and 16GB DDR3 RAM (Done the overclocking thing up to a stable 4.7 on air but removed the OC due my location - tropical weather)

Hope this helps

 

Kind regards

Further to the above, just wanted to clarify that my resolution is 1920 x 1080 (30hz) with mid-level settings for P3D. I'm guessing that given you have a 1080ti, you will be on much higher settings for the Sim. DL is enabled and my frame-rate is locked at 20 with Vsync and TB on. Have a 4K monitor but that is just for other games right now! Hyper-threading is enabled for my CPU.

Hope your issues will be resolved

Kind regards

Following snips are just a summary in comparison to the FSL A320x for which a recently released update had major optimizations included (re snip in above post).

Sorry about the snip for the B77F, which does not feature the monitoring software! All taken with ASP4, REX SkyForce, ORBX PAJN, MyTraffic 6 and Chaseplane.

Lovely.  Maybe you could turn on 4k and fly that fsl 320 into a large airport with dynamic lighting on and report back...
