Ryzen 7 2700x tips for better performance

Recommended Posts

Sliders to the right? @Greggy_D. Please put your sliders to the right in a high AG demand area. Would like to see how silky smooth the slide show is at 4.2GHZ. 

I didn't bring Intel into this- It was for context only. 

Intel 10900k @ 5.1 HT on, Nvidia 3090, 32GB RAM @3800mhz, 1TB NVME Drive (P3Dv5.1), 1440p 48' Ultrawide Monitor.

Who cares about Intel in this thread.  It is about his 2700x, which does not "lack" in any regard towards P3D.  This isn't Intel vs AMD.  Plenty of people run Ryzen just fine in P3D.  There is something wrong with OPs system and/or install of P3D.

yes a agree its something wrong with the setup, i run a 1800x  4.1ghz with single 1080ti 4K its runs nice even better loadtimes then my old 7700k ht off system,

Just chiming in... I have a 1600x with an Acer Predator 1440p monitor, GeForce 1080 and MOST of the time I can get between 30 - 40 fps. Running ORBX products, TopoSim, Active Sky with mostly MilViz aircraft. Here are my graphics settings:

The same arguments again over and over and people still throw the bad IPC around without even understanding what it means. 


Ryzen 2xxx and Coffee Lake IPC is almost identical (the AMD is around -10% behind in gaming). 

What kills most AMDs in games is frequency. Remind the PC in IPC. Per Cycle.

Delete your shader cache as outlined earlier in this thread.

That is one thing you said you did not do, and it often helps tremendously.

There are AMD users in this thread with less cpu power than you, getting better performance (read their posts and look at their settings).  If you enjoy it, I can't imagine quitting flight sim when clearly there is a config issue on your machine...but, if you feel like it to each his own.  The idea is to have fun.

I will note that I did delete my shader cache, and was still getting fairly disappointing performance on my 2700x, both in p3d and in Windows generally. Then Windows borked itself and I had to reinstall fresh. It was like night and day. I tried to do it the lazy way when I upgraded to the AMD, but suffered reduced performance as a result. It's definitely not a bad idea to refresh the OS when you refresh the hardware.

Hi guys, Anyone got any FPS statistics on either of these? I'm building a workstation and as far as I can see the 2700x is the better CPU but the 1900x can be upgraded to the more powerful threadrippers... How poor is the 1900x Vs the 2700x? Best Motherboard For Ryzen 7 5800x Is it worth taking the hit in CPU performance so I can upgrade later down the line? Any help would be much appreciated!
