More FPS from NVIDIA cards

10 May 2017 05:33 #33955 by timi
You will get a nice FPS boost if you turn off threaded optimisation
for FG from the NVIDIA control panel.

I went from 30 to 45 at LOWI. And Alex seemed to went from 38
to 60.

Stu - you'll find it in 'Hidden icons' r/h/s of task bar.

OR in the r/click context menu on the desktop.

For Winderz 7 that is.

I tried this the other night. Went from 38 to my capped FPS of 60, can't get it to budge from 60 flying around Wales - very pleased!

Will try it at EGKK later as it's typically the most intensive scenery we have in the UK

I got a solid 64 fps at EGOD flying about in an R22 while Stuart was testing the S-76.

I'll try it tonight when I get home - I get a minor increase of 5 - 8 fps when I enable multi threading in FGFS. I never thought of turning it off on my GTX780. If this works I'll owe you beer, Timi! :woohoo: :kiss:

Just out of curiosity - What sort of in-sim rendering settings are we looking at ?

Weather fixed/real , time of day , model , add-ons , scenarios etc. ?

FYI - I was getting 116 - 120 Fps at EGPI Islay with PC-9M with Rembrandt + all settings pretty much maxed. And yes I have a 144hz monitor but I am running Full HD mode (max 120hz) 1920x1080.

Shoot some figures out and I will give it a go; 'coz I max out @45 Fps at LOWI, ****EF2000, almost maxed Rembrandt , Bloom 0.86 ; Ambient Occlusion 0.60 ; Rembrandt shadow map size 8192, cascades to 4 increased cascades ( 2 , 8 , 64 , 512 ) ****

Hoping to help,

Porcy :)

That of course is bollox, I was on Multi-sample Anti-aliasing, on my own for 120 fps. Rembrandt was 80 -100 fps and that went down to 25 - 35 fps during the MP event.

Sorry for misleading you. My memory isn't like it used to be.

And these are my FGFS settings which give me 60 FPS while sitting
on the tarmac with the Bo 105 which is in the cloud.

Dunno....you folks from The Future get a leg up on all the cool stuff. Still only 3:05 in the afternoon. My FGFS time is still 3 1/2 hours in the future....LOL.

Same aircraft (daVinci Lockheed 10E) at the very same place which is Rugen/EDCG - With Threaded Optimization enabled in the Nvidia controls I had 27 FPS. All the same settings/time/place/weather with Threaded Optimization disabled was 43 FPS.

Big Win for me. Super thanks for the suggestion!!

Maybe your driver install is corrupted somehow. It has happened to me in the past.
For that I uninstalled each driver version.

Unplugged the network cable, uninstall and reboot. Then it finds the next oldest version soon after the reboot. Uninstall and reboot. And continue this loop until you have nothing left but the basic Microsoft driver. Then install the latest from NVIDIA...

...or maybe Stuart is running Rembrandt and getting it as good as it gets.

I'm beginning to think that as well. I'm pretty sure if you take Rembrandt to maximum (i.e. above pre-set) you will get a frame hits.
But we know Stu runs video and all the AI jobbies as well so maybe he's locked down by sub-processes ?

Just a thought.

I think Stuart's limitation is still CPU based from a previous thread wasn't that the general consensus?
