Currently I've found New York City to be the busiest area in FSX in terms of terrain, autogen and AI traffic, hence best suited for benchmarking and stresstesting. The only thing it lacks is heavy mesh.Does anybody know an area that will stress FSX more than New York?

Seattle is a common stress testing area, specifically with Orbx PNW installed. Also I find 1S2 Darrington (with autogen turned up) again in PNW quite taxing. Another scenery I commonly use now for stress testing is Earth Simulations Guernsey. Especially around St Peter Port that can really stress your system. If you're ever going to get autogen spikes you'll see them there for sure!

Seattle seems to be the most taxing. Lots of AI traffic roads, several busy airports in a small area (meaning lot's of AI traffic), lots of custom buildings, water, autogen, and terrain. Seattle has it all.

There's a 5m mesh for northern NJ that covers the Manhattan island as well - look it up in the AVSIM library. Of course Manhattan X is a must-have if you really want to bring your computer to its knees. I can barely eek out 12-15fps at the lowest visual settings I'm able to tolerate
