    Gsync, VSync and FPS

    Just did a flight from Flightbeam KSFO to KAUS in the NGX with settings as - NVI limiter - 28.5 p3d limiter - unlimited Gsync- Off Vsync - off TB - off. It went well, approx 25FPS at SFO (it was a night flight so DL was in use as well) and then max frames to the limiter the rest of the of way. Nice and smooth as well. Need to do another test flight in the day to see if any blurries

    My laptop screen won't do 30HZ unfortunately with a custom resolution. My external monitor can do 30HZ it seems using CRU but I am not always at my external monitor. Could be a good solution for when I am though. I will try g-sync off with FPS externally locked at 28 and VSync & TB off.

    No I haven't looked into a custom resolution. I may try Gsync off and then play about with locked\unlocked FPS and VSync on\off to see how things go.

    Yes I will give that a go I think at 1/2 refresh rate and 30FPS locked. However based on Does anyone have 1/2 refresh rate working in P3D V4.2?

    I haven’t noticed the flickering affect often but I have seen it occasionally. Do you use NVI to limit the frames? Any particular reason you decided against running V-Sync?

    Anybody any experience with G-sync and P3D?

    No it can only do 60hz

    Gsync, VSync and FPS

    Hi all. Been running P3D 4.2 for a couple of months now using unlimited FPS, vsync off and triple buffering off. I run P3D in windowed mode so Gsync is enabled for both full screen and windowed. NCP is all defaults and NVI is not being used. Monitor is 60hz so FPS never go above this due to Gsync. I fly mainly PMDG level aircraft with activesky, envtex and payware scenery etc so my usual average FPS on the ground will be circa 25-30 and only up to 60FPS when in the air. Performance has been fine with the above settings but I’ve been reading recently that G-Sync only kicks in when above 30fps so my question is, would I be better served using locked FPS or vsync or a combination of both/all 3 in order to get a bit more smoothness and sharper textures? Edit - Doh forgot specs - i7 7700HQ Nvidia GTX 1070 8GB 16GB DDR4

    System for p3d

    Thanks for the info. Think I will look into getting a cooler for it to sit on to help with that. And yep, will go with the 6GB Vram version

    Great, that sounds very nice indeed, just what I was looking for :)

    Think that may be over budget as ideally don’t want to pay much more than the price of the one I listed. But I will look into it, thanks for your help

    Sorry yes meant to saw 7700HQ. From what I’ve read the reviews mention it has pretty good cooling but worst case I will buy an additional cooling case if needs be.

    System for p3d

    Thanks for the reply. Ok will go with the 16gb. Should I stick with the i7 7700k or would another spec be suitable?

    System for p3d

    For a couple of personal reasons I am looking into getting a laptop than can run P3D (and potentially other games) well. I haven't used P3D before as I am an FSX user looking to make the jump across. The laptop would be hooked up to a display occasionally but I will prob only run it at 1080P max, not really interested in 4K or QHD. I usually run payware airport scenery, PMDG/Aerosoft/QW, Activesky, Orbx Global & Vector, Ai traffic package. Would the below be suitable? 8GB RAM version is a bit cheaper but I've read 16GB is recommended for P3D 4.2 https://www.scan.co.uk/products/156-asus-rog-strix-gl502vm-fy172t-fhd-g-sync-i7-7700hq-16gb-ddr4-256gb-m2-sata-ssdplus1tb-hdd-6gb-gt?v=c
  15. Forgot to say, if anyone has any recommendations on things that could be improved or not needed for what I want to achieve that would be great!
