nVidia Control Panel and P3Dv4

Recommended Posts

Its been a long time since I've even thought about changing or looking at default nVidia settings.

Should i be changing any of the default nVidia settings to get the best out of my GPU with P3D?

If I believed every YouTube video out there, I'd be changing all sorts, but I believe HERE is by far the best place for that info.

My card is Asus GTX970. Since installing that card a year or so back, I've change nothing.

There is something you do need to check, the Refresh frequency and the monitor color profile settings … these tie into the capability of your monitor(s).  Optimally you want to use the nVidia color profile with RGB and color range = Full (NOT limited) and 30hz Refresh (if your monitor allows for it, not all monitors work well at 30Hz).  Your NCP color profile options will vary based on the type of monitor connection used, HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI-D.  HDMI will typically provide more color format options and refresh rate options over any other format. 

If you're running Win10 1809 they've added HDR support also (and a few other visual settings) … so you have two "controlling" elements, NCP and Win10 1809 … I let NCP control my viewing experience.

For example this is how a DVI connection might look:

This is an older NCP screenshot for an HDMI connection:

Agreed!  Don't tweak it - as said in comments above --

- i disagree!

You have to do the same on Nvidia Inspector as earlier on FSX and StevesDX10 Fixer. As example i have with: 8x Sparse Grid Supersampling much sharper VC-Cockpit Textures and Digits with no cost of Frames. Try it out..and read the "DX10_HowTo" PDF Document from Steve.

You definitely need to change the default power management mode setting from "Optimal" to "Prefer maximum performance" or "Adaptive".

"Optimal" is the lowest power option and will try to down-clock your graphics card whenever it can.
