Settings help

Recommended Posts

Hi I have recently purchased the P3D simulator and well my FPS are all over the place.
I sometimes get 30FPS but then drop to around 18-20FPS. My systems specs are:

2.7GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor (Turbo Boost up to 3.2GHz) with 4MB L3 cache
8GB (two 4GB) of 1600MHz DDR3 memory
Intel Iris Pro graphics

Can anyone assist me with the best settings to get a better performance?

See https://www.prepar3d.com/system-requirements/ for recommended system. Unfortunately, your system doesn't meet the recommended, but barely meets minimum requirements. You need a dedicated video card and faster processor. Sorry for the bad news. You can try moving all sliders to the far left and then moving them one by one to see what FPS you get.
