FSX, will great FPS ever be achievable consistently?
Posted 06 March 2013 - 05:52 PM
i5 3.3 overclocked to 4.4
Twin frozr GeForce 570 2gb
1tb SATA drive with a seperate partition for FSX
fsx delux and acceleration
******* 'Bojote' Altuve CFG tweaking tool
Bufferpools tweak set to 40000000
Fsx fps set to unlimited and 3rd party fps limiter in place (40fps)
Run from batch file a friend set up for me
Running ORBX England
Running UK2000 scenery across all areas + bristol xtreme and Manchester xtreme
Running Rex weather
Running ultimate traffic 2
Using PMDG 737ngx
That's my full set up. My fps is great in all UK2K airports except the Xtreme or any London area when flying pmdg when they drop to 10/15fps. Also at airports such as Amsterdam schiphol where I'm running 0 scenery add-ons the frames drop right down. If anyone can suggest helping me improve to just a steady 25+ at the airports would be great. I would love to enhance my experience without the extra cash but maybe it just isn't achievable and ill have to buy a new system?

If anyone has any suggestions on what I can do please comment
you're very lucky! Could you share your specs?
I'm beginning to wonder what I'm doing wrong? I have always had a constant 30 FPS with my current build. With every addon imaginable. well. it may drop to 28 FPS. Including about all PMDG, ORBX eyt products. Im not bragging, It really is strange when I read these post?

When Lockheed Martin completely redevelops P3D i,e true 64bit, improved autogen, night lights improvements, proper weather engine that can imitate real life METARs with accuracy and no delays in order to simulate weather as it happens in real life, take advantage of GPU, real life physics, default scenery improvement such as landscape, able to run on all available cores, GPUs & rams (spreading out work load equally) and last but not least... give us some amazing fps 60+ (we're talking 4.3ghz 2500k or better)!
When this happens, let's hope that P3D doesn't suddenly become a Lockheed in-house only simulator with no public availability.

LOL I think what I'm getting at is, am I doing anything wrong?
You are not doing anything wrong - the detailed addon airports can bring any system to it's knees, especially with high traffic settings. Try lowering some settings (starting with traffic and weather) and see how far you have to go to get acceptable performance.

FSX is CPU speed dependent and it looks like more cores is the future and not faster speeds. Therefore, we might never be able to run FSX as high as we would like to.
For now, buy a CPU (4 cores) and great cooler and OC the hell out of it. Then play with the FSX settings until you achieve acceptable fps.
