Computer specs + performance update

13 posts in this topic

Hi,

At this moment my specs :

i7, 870 OC till 3.7Ghz, 8mb ram, ATI HD 6950+HD 5770 GPU's crossfire, p55-gd65 mobo, samsung HD (465GB) ATA, ST3500630ATA HD (runs fsx, 930GB).

My FSX frames and graphics are not bad, but not WAAAAW !

I wonder if i can improve performance and graphics by adding a WD VelociRaptor 300 GB hard disk ?

Regards,

Marc.

You should be getting great frames per second. FSX is very CPU reliant and yours is a lot better than my Quad Core Q6700. With a few decent slider settings you should be running smooth as silk.

Could you please post a picture of your FSX settings.  8)

BTW: I hope you mean 8GB Ram not 8MB of Ram  ;D

what we really like to know are your scenery settings (all of them, several pages) and the content of your fsx.cfg file.....

Okay, I cant' see your customized scenery settings but since its set to "Ulta High" I'm going to assume sliders are set to max. (These settings are by memory)

GRAPHICS

Resolution - your native Resolution

Turn OFF Bloom

Advanced Animations ON

Lens Flare OFF

Frame Rate - If your frames are too high are your stuttering, limit them to either 35 or 60 - or go to Unlimited

Global Texture resolution 2nd Highest or Highest

Anti Aliasing on - *** Go to link further down in post

Filtering - Anisotropic **** Go to link further in post

AIRCRAFT

Aircraft Shadows Off

SCENERY

Autogen Dense - Very Dense ( I use Normal - Dense ) Probably the biggest Frame Killer

Mesh Complexity - About 85 perhaps

Mes Resolution - Your Choice, perhaps 19 or 10 metres

Texture Resolution - 30cm to 15cm

Water Effects - Your Choice, but has a big impact on frames - If you want nice FX I recommend Mid 2x

Scenery Complexity - Dense to Very Dense

Special FX Detail - MAX

WEATHER

Your choice, but I do rate weather changes 0% and cloud coverage density 100%

TRAFFIC

Dependis on your taffic program, but nothing more than 45 - 50%

GA Aviation - Your choice

Airport vehicle density - Low to Medium

Road Vehicles - Your Choice, but 20-30% is okay

Boats and ships - Your Choice

I suggest going to this link posted by Nick Needham, very very useful.

Enjoy.

OK first tip,try to run fsx with only one gpu, fsx is not very fond of coupled gpu's.

checking your cfg:

change these to 0 instead of 1

AIRCRAFT_SHADOWS=1

AIRCRAFT_REFLECTIONS=1

AC_SELF_SHADOW=1

GROUND_SHADOWS=1

change this one to 30 or 60 (if the refresh rate of your monitor is 60Hz)

UPPER_FRAMERATE_LIMIT=40

move this one to 20/25%

AirlineDensity=60

adjust this one with the water effects slider in your scenery setup screen to med 2x or low 2x"

WATER_EFFECTS=7

These should gain you considerable fps. I do advise you to run the Boyote cfg tweak at http://www.venetubo.com/fsx.html

Your level of detail radius can  come down to medium.

Mesh resolution can come down one notch, water resolution can down about two notches. And you can bring scenery complexity and Autogen Density down to Very Dense or Dense as that is probably one of your biggest killers.

OHHHH !!!! And a monster you have is that you have Ground scenery shadows ticked.

UNTICK THAT!!! That is eating your frames up.
