Question about perfomance and upgrade

Recommended Posts

Good evening!

I have recently switched to a 45" 4k Sony Tv, but my frames are horrible. I get around 12-20 at EKCH at daytime in a NGXu, and at night around 4-8. My question is, are my specs simply not up to date? or is the low fps related to the TV?        In both cases, what would you suggest upgrading, because at this state its almost impossible to have a stable experience. I should also state that all my sliders are low-mid, and i use 2xmsaa. And my resolution is 3840x2160x32 which is native to the TV.


GTX 1050TI

Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40GHz


Usual Addons:

Orbx Global



Active sky



Thank you in advance

Your system is pretty dated to be running P3D @4k. Exspecially the graphic card which only has 4gb of VRAM which will instantly get filled running at that resolution

Agreed. If you are going to upgrade anything and run at 4K - get a new video card with more VRAM. Then try overclocking or a faster processor.

I think 1920×1080 look at lot better than on a 3840x2160 display than it does on native 1920×1080 native display. So even if you did nothing I think you are better than you where. But for sure you need VRAM for 4K. Probably at least 6gb but you should aim for 8gb +

That processor at 3.4 ghz is also going to suffer. If you could o/c it to 4+ ghz that would help.

I bet both GPU and memory load will be at 100%

Well, if you unlock the FPS in the sim, either CPU or GPU will at 100%, depending where your bottleneck is. You have to view CPU cores, rather than total.

1050ti cards are targeted at HD resolution not 4k. Even my 1080ti struggles at 4k.
