Why Not Overclocking Helps?

Recommended Posts

I am running my I7-8700 and GTX 1080 not overclocked just to try and see what would happen. Why now do the micro stutters seem to subside. Not stop but more enjoyable? Ideas?

Interesting.

Try installing process Lasso  right click on the fs2020 process while the game is running and set Windows Dynamic Thread priority to disabled.

Ok Great Will do, But do not overclock? Thanks

You could try over clocking just one device, CPU or GPU does not matter which and see if you still get stutters.  If you do try overclocking the other device instead.

Ah got it, the lasso trick appears to have helped as well. Best two flight since I purchased. Thank You again! What about hyper threading?

Also check Application power profile > Bitsum Highest Performance and see how that helps.

Being a DX11 the game can only use a limited number of cores so hyperthreading is probably not useful.  I have not tried disabling it though.

One other thing you can do is set the game to use the high performance power scheme and set IO for the game to high priority as well.

The site below recommends configuring the CPU limiter in Lasso, I have not tried this so no idea if it helps.

Depends on the CPU...  for a quad core CPU, I would leave it enabled.

For a six core CPU.. who knows..

I have tried disabling hyperthreading just to test, but it gave me less performance with my CPU, about 5-7 fps.

For most people, Hyperthreading enabled in the CPU is the best option.

With the graphics card, when I overclocked my 1080TI, I got very little performance boost, but I did get a few crashes straight to desktop, and the card got stuttery when it got hot.

MSFS tends to utilise the graphics card right up to 100%, so if it gets to hot (due to overclocking), the card may throttle itself until the temperatures come back down, leading to performance loss.

My view is best to leave the card where it can run comfortably at 100%.  The extra frame or two you gain by overclocking really isn't worth it if it becomes unstable. 👍

PS. Believe it or not, I am actually under-clocking my graphics card slightly (GPU not the VRAM).  I do this because it can still hold 30 fps in most situations, but it also runs cooler, quieter (fans), and I have not had CTD's since.

Underclocking or undervolting?  Undervolting can often achieve cooler and quieter at the same FPS.

Hi guys,

I have read and follow instructions in above posts with the freemium version of proccess lasso and didn't get any improvement, same fps performance, better ram ussage, but could not see more value. Have you ever try in the free version? Apparently during the trial time it has all the value than the subscription license.

Thanks

Richard
