  1. Hi Guys, I need some help. I have an AMD Six Core & since i am really not that good with computing/math i was wondering if someone knows or can check for me what the Affinity Mask Setting Should Be for an AMD Six Core because i truthfully don't know. I know some users set theirs to 14 or 86 but beyond that i have no idea. Btw i don't have hyperthreading. Any help here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Wayne George
  2. Hello. Let me start with my system settings. HP Pavilion g4-2064la Intel Core i3 @ 2,3GHz 4Gb RAM Intel HD Graphics 3000 (integrated) ATI Radeon HD 7670M (dedicated) - Switchable graphics FSX with SP1 and SP2 I've forever used FSX in DX9 mode, but recently wanted to try DX10 and see how it works. Even though the FPS have never been so good in my computer and I have applied the fixes, antialiasing is terribly bad. I have already applied the MultiSamplesPerPixel=4 in the fsx.CFG [GRAPHICS] section and the "Use application settings" in RadeonPro's AA options (I also selected Multisampling (Box)). Anyway, the AA should work, but it does not function very well. I also get a black full-screen view, but I can see everything if FSX is running in windowed mode. Thanks for your help. I suppose I should start by letting FSX build a new fsx.CFG file, shouldn't I?
  3. Hi guys, I need your help, I want to upgrade my system, but I don't know what to do, I'm using an AMD Fx 4350 (which is really bad), but as you know this is so weak, it doesnt run FSX with a proper FPS,so I decided to upgrade, my budget isnt the best, so I wont buy an Intel core i7 4770k, I cant. I readed about intel processors are better (talking about fsx), but I've seens some videos, people using AMD Fx 8350, and FSX running good. So, my options are: 1) Intel Core i3 4150, It's obviously that I have to buy another board, and I don't know if it's gonna be problem, I dont know if I'm going to have some kind of problem with the two cores it has. 2) AMD Fx 9370, I dont have to buy another motherboard, and if FSX runs good on Fx 8350, this should be better. So guys, help me please, do not tell me things like: ''oh no buy the i5-4670k, buy the i7 4790k'' because I dont really have the money. Regards.
  4. Hello, I recently bought new hardware for my pc,but i dont know if i am performing good or bad. Specs: CPU:Intel 4770 GPU:AMD 280X RAM:8GB 1 HDD Drive No overclocking I get aprox. 20 fps with almost full graphics,in a pmdg 737 on schiphol,aerosoft scenery. I have traffic turned off. What do you think?
  5. Hello, the last few days I try to switch from the "traditional" FSX to p3d. After many hours of searching and tweaking I'm not quite satisfied with the result. I get about 15-20 fps with default scenery and the textures are not to clear. Any suggestions? CPU: Intel Core i7 4790 @ 3.60 GHz GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series RAM: 8GB
  6. I have the following system and planning to buy a new graphics card to make the step from fsx to p3d. I'm between 1050ti and RX 470. intel i5-750 overclocked @ 3.3Ghz Ati 5770 8GB ram I know that rx-470 is generally about 25% faster than the 1050ti and frankly that's the one i'm thinking of buying, but i'm wondering if a nvidia graphics card is a must now days for p3d, if rx-470 will be the same or better for p3d and if there's any feedback about the performance of P3D from users that have recent AMD graphics cards. I'm always noticing people claiming that nvidia is the way to go for p3d, but they provide no justifications apart from the fact the some 3-4 years ago users with ATI were experiencing lower frames rates in clouds. Any help/feedback would be grateful!
  7. Hello! I want to know if the Steave DX work for my spec? AMD Radeon R270 2GB GDDR5 , AMD FX-6300 4,2GHZ Turbo 6 core. Kingston HyperX Fury 8GB 1600MHz. Seagate 1000GB 7200RPM 64MB and im using FSX Steam??
  8. What do you think, what kind of FPS I will gain from upgrading from FX-8350 to i5-7600K? I have a GTX 770 video card. With PMDG 737, Orbx etc.
  9. Does P3D v4 support octa core or hex core process as well as quad core cpu? I am currently using the i7 7700k, which is a 4 core 8 thread. However, if p3d supports Octa Core process , I'll purchase an 8 core 16 thread, the Rizen 1700x. I would like to hear advice from those who have used Hex Core or Octa Core in p3d. Thanks.
  10. Hello friends, I need help. I am trying to configure affinitymask for my processor, I tried with values ​​62 or 63-64, FSX works for a few minutes with all cores, but then the rest stops working attached some screenshots Core 0 1 (first physical core) 1 2 (first logical core) 2 4 (2nd physical core) 3 8 (2nd logical core) 4 16 (3rd physical ... 5 32 6 64 7 128 8 256 9 512 10 1024 11 2048
  11. Ok, so I am looking to build a pc for fsx, but I want it to hold up on other sims such as xplane, prepar3d, or other games like arma 3, battlefield 4, etc. . This is what I came up with https://pcpartpicker.com/user/littleferrhis/saved/#savedbuild_1979789...Now I do understand that in games like fsx, intel seems to be the way to go, but I am also going to be using this for other games, and the 4 cores may be more beneficial in that aspect, as well as amd having cheap , but powerful hardware. I tried to go as cheap as possible, since my budget is around $500, and I am going to need to wheel and deal to even reach this goal. I wanted to hear opinions, and I want to see if there are parts that are better for at the same price or cheaper. Thanks...
  12. Hiya folks, Have recently come back to FSX and put my trusty sword away for a while. I got myself a decent system last year (well late 2013) - AMD A10 Quad core and Radeon R9 200 series GPU. All the other usual ingredients. I would like to use the DX10 preview settings and with that in mind I am really considering buying Steves DX10 fixer. I do have Acceleration installed. One question is would I still need to set up a profile etc in Radeon Pro, or does the Catalyst Control Center replace it. Or are they different animals altogether. Next question - with this CPU, and GPU should the DX10 feature be a good improvement graphically and frames per second wise ? Or not worth the hassle. Any help or advice gratefully recieved. Thank you. Terry
  13. Good evening everyone I just got a new computer the specs are : 16GB of ram and AMD R9 380 And an AMD FX 8320 I Get about 12+16 fps with the pmdg 737 in default scenery I've seen some streamers with the same specs and like 87-90 fps while recording ! How's is this possible ! Please help me !
  14. Hello dear avsimmers I built my pc 5 years ago. The specs are Core i3 2120 1155p , 2x4GB DDR3 1333mhz Ram , Radeon HD6670 2gigs 128bit graphics , Gigabyte H61 MA-D3V mobo. I'm bored of compromising performance for graphics and vice versa and want to make some significant changes to run the P3D or FSX-SE smoothly with decent graphics. Here, I'm able to find used i7 2600k or 3770k in good condition as the mobo is 1155p and thinking about putting a GTX 1060 inside. But I'm pretty much concerned about the mobo as it's old and not sure if it could run these hardware consistently. and i know that it's like impossible to make a stable cpu overlock on a H61 chipset motherboard. So , should i go for it without worries or keep saving money to build an entire new setup which will take a long time tbh. And i need precise answers about the performance of AMD products for flight simulators especially P3D. Thanks in advance
  15. Greetings everyone, Today I will ask your help by asking you a simple question, what are your average FPS in FSX-SE? My computer is a: CPU: AMD FX 9350 Back edition 4.7 Mhz liquid cooled VIDEO: AMD MSI 390 8 GB MEMORY: 16GB corsair DDR3 1866 MHZ HARD DRIVE: 512 GB SSD + OCZ 256 GB SSD Windows 10. Products installed: FSX-SE, Fly-Tampa Montreal, Fsdt JFK V2, Fsdt Chicago O'hare, AS16 + REX SoftClouds, PMDG 737. In JFK in ground I get 15 fps in the virtual cockpit and around 22 fps outside In the air the average can go up at 28 in the virtual cockpit 35 outside, with some random 50 fps picks. Is this normal or low for my setup?
  16. Hello, I am seeking your help, if anybody has any experience or suggestion regarding P3D AA with AMD GPU? I am practically unable to get a decent anti-aliasing in the simulator. Tried with 4 and 8 samples, FXAA on/off. With/without Radeon settings profile (Used App settings/enhance/override 4x, 8x). Still getting some aliasing, flickering and shimmering; Rwy, terminal and 3D objects shimmering Gauges (especially F/O) and txt around GPS and Radio knobs gauges flickering Aliasing on the external view (wings, yellow fuselage line...) I would be very gratful for any suggestions and ideas how could I solve this? Your help is very much appreciated. I did rebuild the cfg and I have the latest AMD drivers (16.11.2) My config: Win10 x64 P3Dv3.4.9 MoBo: MSI B150 PC MATE RAM: Kingston HyperX FURY 8GB DDR4 2133MHz CL14 CPU: Intel Core i5-6500, 3.2GHz GPU: Sapphire R9 390 NITRO SSD: Crucial BX100 250GB Current Radeon P3D profile: P3D Graphics settings:
  17. hello everyone , i just got my P3d v2.5 (finally ) but for my bad luck , i had Anti-aliasing problem with it, I am using AMD 7670M 2 GB graphic card with a built in Intel 4000 HD ( yes , it's a laptop) , i only see my Intel 4000 GPU card detected in my graphics menu , i had tried all the maximum aliasing settings both in the P3D Menu and in the CCC , but it still didn't work , any help please ? BTW : it's working well on FSX !
  18. Hello, Hoping somebody can help before I lose the will to live. I have reciently got 3 Triple monitors for my flight sim experience. I am getting an Average of about 22fps. It gets high FPS everywhere else other than the VC. But none of it is constant. I have it set on Unlimited. I use Eyeinfinity of a Resolution of 5760x1200. My Specs will be below. I run orbx Global and Orbx England, and it looks terrible.. So does REX which is unlike before. I hope somebody can help as there is very little information about AMD around. Its what I have and what I was able to get hold off. The Specs are still pretty decent in my opinion. Just wish the game would react fps wise. Anyway thank you in advanced. Any more information needed don't hesitate to contact me. Intel i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30Ghz Windows 7 Ultimate, AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series, 3x Monitors Eyefinity at 5760x1200, Foxconn Rattler Motherboard and 8GB Ram/Memory. FSX CFG File: http://pastebin.com/inuV5FRQ Btw I have tried many tweaks now.
  19. Anyone know if it's worth the upgrade from a AMD r9 380 4gb to a ASUS ROG STRIX 1060 6gb, Not sure whether it's worth the £300 cost? Anyone help would be appreciated :)
  20. Just a quick one. Tomorrow I begin the Haswell Build. I wanted to just post this for the AMD aficionados. I've flown many thousands of miles with this chip - we have had countless adventures around the World and flown every aircraft from the humble default Cessna 172 right up to the PMDG 737 NGX. VFR, IFR...you name it...we've done it; this old Chip and I. It's just a thank you to it before I confine it to the "Box Of Computer Bits" in the garage. It taught me how to fly VOR Nav, ILS, NDB. Realism settings set to Full it taught me a little about how aircraft are affected by wind, Flying real World Weather, etc. In short, we took on FSX together - and we won. I feel I should bury it at the end of the runway at EGKK. I'm so sorry but it just isn't fast enough to do the necessary anymore what with ORBX, PMDG, etc, but that doesn't stop me having a hell of a lot of respect and love for where it has taken me both in the Sim and Real World - I doubt I would have started flying RW if it wasn't for the experience it gave me here inside FSX. So, Thank you me old mate AMD Chip and God rest your well flown soul. I'll never forget what you made possible.
  21. Hello, I currently am running a A6-3670K APU with a Radeon 4850 HD GPU. I know that both of these components are outdated. I have many addons such as FTX Global, ASN, Aerosoft Airbus, PMDG 737, REX, and various airports. I am getting about 10 fps sitting on the ground at FSDreamTeam DFW. I am looking to upgrade my processor to an I5 and my GPU to a current card. What is the best value I5 that would run FSX smoothly? I don't need 80 fps, just trying to get it up to about 25-30. Thanks!
  22. As some of you know P3D is not supported by AMD crossfire. It is because P3D runs in windowed mode to allow different kinds of multi monitor settings as I understood. Unfortunately crossfire wont run in windowed mode. As I just bought a AMD 295x2 card i tried to get support from AMD. After many tries to get an appropriate answer from if they plan windowed mode crossfire support in the near future, they wrote; "No, AMD wont support the windowed mode crossfire in the future." - Means never. So for everybody outhere who have or plan a multi monitor flight sim with good settings AMD should not be the brand of your chose.
