Anyone here tried maxing out p3dv5 yet?

Recommended Posts

I decided to take the risk and try maxing out p3dv5 today and to my surprise I am still managing 29-30FPS. The only setting I don't have maxed out are shadows, and texture quality (set at medium to avoid VRAM overages). So far I am sitting at 3.5/7.1GB at ORBX's KTVL airport. I haven't tried to fly into urban LA yet which will be the real test. The biggest key so far appears to be setting 2xMSAA in the sim and using 2x SGSS in Nvidia's inspector. It looks almost as good as 4x SSAA which is an FPS killer on my system sometimes.

Why bother.. 😉

Why not instead spend your time finding the best combination of smoothness and visual quality for your system, and then sharing the outcome with us..

I just finish a flight with the same setting you have except for Nvidia insp and texture at max  using 2xssaa  in sim. Monitor 30 hz ,sim 31. Flight fr PAHO -PAJN mostly open terrain thats the only place I will max out. A couple of stutters around the airports. Its nice to be able to max out and still be smooth most of time. Next flight I'll see what happens flying into a medium airport in LA in my twin GA. Probably stutters with a 7700k and 1080ti. 😄

I just went through LA and things got a little rough with the draw distance so I had to scale that back a bit. Still it is a huge improvement from v4. It makes me wonder what kind of monster setup you would need to have to max everything out completely!

You can actually get pretty close to the “sliders full right” nirvana that simmers have been dreaming about for decades.

A 3080TI would probably do it.

P3D rewards good hardware better than previous versions of the sim.

Oh yeah definitely. I can only imagine what the price tag will be on that card when it is released. GPU prices already seem high.

I only have an RTX 2060 with 6 gb VRAM, and i7-9750H gaming laptop and I can pretty much max out the sliders with GA planes and still get 30 fps. Albeit I don't use EA since I think REX clouds look better.

I was under the impression that Nvidia Inspector had stopped working with P3D a long time ago. I used to run P3Dv3 with 4x SGSS AA, as that was better than anything available from within P3D itself.

Is the latest version still 1.9.7.8?
