Thread: FPS Sound Right?

  1. Default FPS Sound Right?

    I am running an AMD 2990wx 32 core at 4.1 speed, asus x-399e, 2080ti black, ram to the max, When flying from jfk new york with max graphic options, i am between 26-29 fps does that sound right pretty much all the planes are the same fps. Should it be higher i did all the nv control panel tricks and windows tricks all drivers are updated ....

    Thanks

    What resolution are you running at?

    At this point, FS2020 isn't using all the extra cores very efficiently. It is working 1 or 2 cores very hard and the others are barely working. I also think they optimized for Intel initially, and supposedly are working to optimize AMD. I suspect you are about right with that CPU. What is your memory speed?

    That is probably about right for performance if you have everything cranked up. The Threadripper CPUs were aimed at tasks that are highly parallelized, which MSFS is not (not all computing tasks lend themselves to more cores). On top of that, not all cores on the 2990WX are equal either. This review gives more detail, if you're interested.

    Have you tried dialing some of the settings back a notch or two? A number of settings can be turned down with little to no visual impact.

    SoFly has a free performance guide available on simMarket.

    Their full guide is also available here in the FlightSim Store. This one covers many other areas in the sim, which may help with some of the questions you have had.

    (Although it is very unfortunate that a guide like this was not included with the sim).

    I really don't think there was any conscious effort to optimize for either Intel or AMD CPUs to start with. While MSFS is a largely new sim, it was still influenced by FSX and likely inherited an architecture that benefits more from high IPC performance per core over multiple cores. Right now this means Intel's designs run it better. With it coming to the Xbox, I'm sure they are working on improving the use of multiple cores, though I don't expect it to ever fully use all cores in a given system (well, at least in systems with more than four cores). Not all computing tasks can fully use all cores, and benefit more from using other available resources, such as the GPU, RAM and, with DirectStorage on the way, SSDs.

    Hey guys thanks for all the info, while i am not the most tech savvy i think i get the pic. First off i would of been better off with a different cpu like a 4.5 speed and less cores, well my bad for not really doing my homework but i make the best of it!! I read in a thread somewhere to install ryzen master and put it in game mode its suppose to shut down half the cores if i remember correct. I will give it a try...

    I think you made a good choice. Most flight simulators are released with an optimum performance waiting on future hardware. Unless you are flying acrobatic over NYC, you probably are happy with the way the sim performs in terms of smoothness and certainly visual quality. I would expect your FPS to jump markedly out in South Dakota. Unless you spend most of your time over NYC, London, or Tokyo, you probably would not notice any benefit to a faster processor speed. If you eventually upgrade to 4K you may need to dial back settings a little, otherwise enjoy, you can run in Ultra and most folks can't with current hardware.

    Do not get sucked into the analysis paralysis mode of chasing FPS. Just set things for smoothness, & dont keep on focusing on the numbers.
