Thread: Rendering Options Are Set Too High

  1. Default Rendering Options Are Set Too High

    I downloaded X-Plane the other day and received this message. I was wondering why the plane was hardly moving and the
    mouse curser was so slow. So I took the settings down very low and still got the same message.

    My computer is around 5 years old:
    Windows 7 64 Bit
    ATI Radeon HD 3200 Integrated Video Card
    AMD Phenom 2 X4 810 Processor
    8 GB DDR2
    1 TB HD

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Same issue here with a similar setup. Haven't found a solution. Only getting 10fps. Anyone have a solution other than a new PC?

    I'll take the lack of response as a no.

    No. Take the absence of reply as concurring with your original conclusion.
    If you want further info then provide more info on the current state-of-play of your hardware...

    Hi Fred,

    I'm afraid it's a frame-rate issue, as your system isn't really up to the job of running X-Plane 11 (I assume that is the version you're trying to run?).

    Also, it's a well known fact (surprised it wasn't mentioned in the previous posts), that AMD GPUs are notoriously slower than Nvidia when running X-Plane - due to how their OpenGL driver operates.

    As for suggestions....

    If funds allow, then I would go for a new MB, memory, and GPU (preferably Nvidia).

    Hope this helps, and let us know how you get on.

    Dominic
