Something that helped my Xplane11 performance

Recommended Posts

I like to keep all my Xplane11 settings maxed but not having a system with a lot of RAM every ten hours of flight or so I would get a crash, usually on replay.  So I recently decided to lower my resolution from my monitor's max 1080p to 720p and performance has improved significantly on top of the 11.30 improvements, with no more ten hour CTD's or stutters.  One has to compromise slightly to enjoy the other graphics settings at their max, like AA, etc.  My fps improved and fluidity greatly improved.  Those with high end system my advice is "Take No Prisoners" but those with mid range or lower end systems who still want to enjoy beautiful aircraft, add on and default scenery, maybe cutting the resolution a notch will help unless your eyes demand the best.  It is always a tradeoff, fps, eye candy, and God Bless those with systems or tweaks that can handle it all.  I am not a tweaker, just a flyer, I like to install sims or other entertainment titles and run with them, without overclocking or other things that can shorten the longevity of hardware.

For me whatever resolution changes nothing except if i set it to 2k i get a drop. the only time fps will drop if i go above FXAA+SSAO that's all. 

Heavy cloud cover also has no impact.

The only time fps goes up if i reduce 16:9 to 1280 x 720. But still holding 20-22 @16:9 is smooth.

But differs with systems. Mostly Nvidia users may notice.
