2 Monitor (TVs) FPS Drop


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


In planning to complete my home cockpit build, I purchased another HDTV to use as the monitor. I now have 2 HDTV's set up, one as the primary (front-facing) monitor, another for the size. I'm having some issues with the FPS dropping considerably (halfish) when I create a new Window to drag to my left monitor for the side-view. I'm averaging around 25 FPS in one mode, and it drops to about 8-10 FPS with 2 views.


System Stats:

Windows 8.1

i7 3.9 ghZ CPU

Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 2GB



Nvidia Inspector Settings:



My FSX.CFG has been fine-tuned for AA problems, anything worth noting would just be Textures are set high (4046).


Things I have tried:

I tried setting the Frame Rate Limiter in FSX to Unlimited, a few people mentioned that could help, didn't seem to make a difference. I tried the A2A Piper 180 vs Carenado Cirrus SR22 and the FPS' were about the same. I tried changing a few Nvidia Inspector Settings to no affect.


Any help would be much appreciated!

Read Kosta's guide pinned at the top. The 1/2 Vsync tweak is probably what you need,


Thanks for your reply. I took a look at his thread and created a new CFG file with his changes and his NI settings. The result was 22 FPS on one display, and 9 FPS with 2. The settings he had were used exactly, with the formulaic calculations.


I'd really appreciate some help... I've spent hours trying to get this thing working. Hell at this point, I'd pay to have someone do it.

Have you tried the hardware forum? Monitor configs are handled there. Some searches on that might get you closer faster. There might also be some stuff you have to do with your GCard panels.


There is another more general document which covers mult monitors with some of the same information. It's long and convoluted so so some searches on it:
