Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

I am thinking of upgrading to a new system.

I am mainly looking to up grade for p3d .

Can you please advise which of the above is best for p3d.

At the present I have I have  a i7 3770k system overclocked to 4ghz and a 1080ti GPU.

Many thanks.

Hi,

I'm a I9-9900K user and very happy with it. If  you overclock the Core i9, it outputs 21,204, which is a 16.8 percent increase over the Core i7.

I never had the I7-9700 so I can't say anything how good or bad it is, on my PC I'm very stable at 5.0 GHZ and stable temperatures. What I noticed on the new version of P3D I get the best results with HT off (in 8 cores only).

I had the 1080 Ti before, despite the fact that is a good GPU you might find that actually based on what kind of settings you might use and what kind of airplanes you have that it might not be enough. So you have to compromise.

At the same time there is no PC out there that will run P3D at MAX settings without problems.

It's up to you how much you want to spend and at the end how much you will compromise on a personal level of visuals to get stutters free and fluidity.

Honestly, I'm using P3D since day one and their performance improvements are very slow and they still have bugs unattended for years.

I would wait a few more months, save more money and check out the new Microsoft product before anything else. Me personally I stopped buying anything and patiently waiting for the new sim.  

All the best.

I'm running an i7 9700k @ 5.0Ghz with a Corsair H100i Platinum cooler. I agree with Alex as regards hyperthreading. On previous systems I saw no real benefit with P3D. I'll be interested to see what sort of resources the new Microsoft Flight Simulator will use.

Many thanks gents for your comments. I have have managed to get a new aorus master board for very good price. I will keep eyes out for both i9 and i7 . Which ever comes cheaper I will get it. 

I am running on very tight budget- perils of retirement.

My needs are are occasional p3d and dcs  world.

Anybody selling either of above cpu in Manchester area-UK. You have a ready buyer. lol.

Since you already have a 1080 Ti (great card) then upgrading to the i7-9700 or i7-9900 would be optimal imo.

This is how I would do it:

i7-9900k, 1080 Ti ...everything else the same.

i9-9900 then I would upgrade to the 2080 Ti and would also upgrade my RAM and Motherboard.
