Re: Upgrade Current PC Components or Start Again?

I would never "upgrade" from an old computer to another old computer. Tell us your max. budget and we will be able to give you some ideas about what you could get with this budget. Personally, I would not go anywhere else than to an i5-9600K with a RTX-2060/GTX-1660TI or a comparable AMD build (Ryze...

Re: PC BUILDING FOR P3DV4.5

You can try to get a handle on whether or not a GPU upgrade will provide you with extra FPS by adjusting GPU-intensive settings. Example: use DSR from nVIDIA to increase your resolution even beyond what your monitor supports and check the FPS. If for example your current GPU is capable of providing ...

Re: Realistic expectations on FPS on high end rig

I haven't tried too many tweaks, just Nvidia control panel changes and P3Dv4.5 slider adjustments. Did you have tweaks active for your old 4770 build? I always struggled with the performance and for me, always got the best results with this setup: - use an affinity mask entry inside prepar3d.cfg th...

Re: I7 8700 vs I7 9700K upgrade question/preformance

Ok, with those other components, you would be fine to upgrade to a 9700K. I would go for it, you will get better performance and if you are lucky in the silicone lottery, you might even get this 9700K to 4.9 or 5.0GHz on all cores. The Mugen should still be able to cope with this (although it will r...

Re: September 2019 New Build

What is important in P3D is the processor base clock rate, in this case 3.6 GHz. [...] Personally I would look for a processor with a higher base clock rate (my own i7-7700K has a base rate of 4.2 GHz, and conservatively overclocked it runs at 4.66 GHz), and of course a K-processor that you can ove...

Re: I7 8700 vs I7 9700K upgrade question/preformance

Jorgen, he does not have the -K variant of the 8700. However, both the 8700K as well as the 8700 have an all core turbo of 4.3GHz... Means, the 9700K will be considerably faster already without overclocking. BUT: I fear that the rig the topic starter uses is a pre-assembled build from whatever store...

Re: September 2019 New Build

[EDITED TO ADHERE TO FORUM GUIDELINES] Sorry, I do not get the logic behind this thread... The only thing I can suggest if money does not really matter (what I guess when looking on those components): why not going even further regarding RAM? Look for 4133MHz CL17 modules, you will be able to squeez...

Re: Fps - wow

I watched a guide on YouTube for setting up view groups, so thought I'd play about on the old pc first.
Might be of interested to some here to know about what video you are talking about, no?

Re: Running P3D 4.5 smoothley in 2019 (LM has a long way to go)

Did you try to work with straight divisors for your VSYNC/screenrefresh rate/FPS limiter setup? I realized that the only way I can have P3Dv4.5 stutter free on my G-SYNC 144Hz monitor is: - disable G-SYNC for P3D via nVIDIA Profile Inspector - limit the refresh rate of the monitor to 120Hz instead o...

Re: New components

Nothing more easy to test if a higher resolution would still be working with your nVIDIA card: activate DSR (Dynamic Super Resolution) in the driver menue and simply select the higher resolution inside P3D. Then you can compare BEFORE you go and buy a new monitor or a new GPU...

Re: Tweak to limit the maximum display distance

Honestly, I do not think that simply limiting the visual display distance will do anything for the performance. Rather take those autogen sliders one notch back (to the left), the performance gain will be much greater... The only thing for sure has a great impact on performance in regard of display ...

Re: Ssd for new i3 gen 8

If it does not yet have an SSD installed, yes, it will be much faster regarding startup and working. BUT: with or without SSD, with this laptop you will not be able to reasonably use Prepar3d. If, then only on the lowest possible settings, but I doubt that even with the lowest settings you will get ...

Re: Beach wave effect in 4.5

To me, they are perma-disabled, I hovered now for several seconds over a beach (close to YPEC, Australia v2 from ORBX) and they did not appear. Also not elsewhere in the world. How do I get them back?

Re: Upgrade CPU/ Motherboard

I would rather wait until the Ryzen 3000 family of processors is released to market. Does not make sense to buy an "old" Ryzen now, but that is just my opinion.
