Thread: Super computer, poor FSX performance

  1. Default Super computer, poor FSX performance

    I have a i5 Kalby Lake 7600 processor, 16 GB ram, Windows 10, and an ASUS GeForce GTX 1050 2 GB 6DDRS video card and FSX still "stutters" from time to time. The video card talks about 60 fps but I'm down to 22 fps with simple clouds, minor water activity, and few cars, boats, etc. Why isn't FSX screaming smooth with all that power?

    Take a look at Kosta's FSX tweaking guide, posted as a sticky at the top of this forum.

    You don't say what screen resolution you are running. At 1080p you should do better than that, although a consistent 60fps is very optimistic with weather. The number of pixels is key, so there's not much use talking about it unless we know that.

    It's a wide screen monitor and I'm running at 1920 x 1080. I have two monitors but just use this one as it is the newest. Thanks for any help.

    It would help to know the clock rate of the CPU.

    You might also want to post your FSX.CFG here.

    It's a Intel Core i5-7600K, not sure about clock rate; would that be the 3.8 Ghz number?

    Speaking of which, what happened to bojote's tweak tool ?

    if you never wonder about something, its because you know everything....

    I have tried to find the Bojote tool several times, just to see what it would do to my file, but the tool seems to have disappeared....

    OK, back to the present case!

    The 3.8 GHz is the clock rate. It is a tad slow, but I have run FSX on 3.3 GHz at one time and it still looked good.

    Before you do anything else, back up the FSX.CFG.

    About the FSX.CFG: it is made up of sections, each section having a header looking like this example:

    [MAIN]

    For better readability I put a blank line just before each header.

    You will see that you have a number of sections with the header beginning like this:

    [DISPLAY.Device.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx with a reference to the display adapter and resolution.

    Now remove all the sections beginning like that, EXCEPT the one referring to your present display adapter and resolution.

    In the section [TrafficManager], set FreewayDensity to 5.

    Save the file, then make a differently-named backup - use some system so you know which backup is from which step.

    Now, go here:

    https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/showt...Tweaking-Guide

    and run through that. This will give you the improvements that are possible.

    My own system is an i7 7700K at 4.2 GHz, 16 GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM and a GTX 960 card with Win 10, everything running off SSDs, and I still get stutters.

    If you run off HDDs, then make sure to defrag them regularly.

    That was about what I could figure out....

    Of course I forgot something.....

    Since this is Windows 10, you might want to go and turn off or better uninstall all those Smartphone-like apps that Microshaft seems to think we need so desperately.

    To stop Windows 10 from reporting back on what you do (it reports more than you think or like), you can install a nifty little freeware tool, available here:

    https://www.oo-software.com/en/shutup10

    This will make more CPU cycles available to FSX.
