  1. Dear, I have a hardware related question. Hopefully someone can help me, since ORBX products are causing FPS decrease on my machine (especially True Earth NL). Recently I upgraded from a GTX1060 to a GTX1080 (used). I was expecting an increase on average FPS after reading several benchmarks and forums. Within the area of Amsterdam (use of Global, Vector, Open LC EU and True Earth NL) the average FPS is 12 with lower limit of 8 and upper limit of 15. I have done a lot of research into software changes and mods, so the chance of software related issues is minimal (.cfg mods, Nvidia inspector, settings optimizing,). Still any recommendations are more than welcome (see attached pictures for settings in P3DV4 and attached .cfg file). Several benchmarks indicated that it was possible to increase FPS by 33% to upgrade to the GTX1080, but I am expecting that other hardware is limiting the performances. My CPU, a Ryzen 5 1600X, is indicating an average load of 89-95% (Lasso process performance measurements), when running P3DV4 (overclocked to 3.8 stable), so I think the CPU is not the bottleneck (but maybe I am wrong). Can someone (who has way more experience) help me in searching the bottleneck? I also read that the Intel processors are better for P3DV4 performance, but I have a AMD processor build computer (motherboard with AM4 socket). The problem that I face right now is that I don't know how to research were my bottlenecks are and whether there is software to support me. Next to this, I don't want to spend more money without being sure there is an upgrade in FPS performance. My systems specs: - AMD Ryzen 5, 1600X (water cooled); - Asrock X370 K4 gaming motherboard (can be used to upgrade to the newest AMD processor AM4 socket); - 16 gb. Corsair LPX8 DDR4 16gb RAM 2400 MHz; - STRIX GTX1080 DDR5 8gb.; Best regards, Nils Prepar3D.cfg
  2. Hello friends So AMD is claiming they are back. Meaning, back with performance competitiveness against Intel. Just how far they are competitive will be seen when the Zen CPUs are independently verified. Certainly the executives at AMD are testifying to performance. What I think is interesting about this is with intel, on the Haswell-E CPU range your looking at mega bucks for an 8 core CPU, 16 with hyperthreading, and beyond megabucks into the ludicrous expense of the 10 core extreme edition CPU. AMD traditionally undercuts this. So we might end up getting a real 8 core, 16 SMT CPU for around what a Skylake CPU costs. P3D V3 with the usual suspects of addons is one of the few apps in the simulation / gaming space that can use more than 4 cores. Especially at high speed down on the deck, it's possible with 16 HT'ed cores to max it out I've found. As for Intel....Well Kaby Lake is taking forever to come out and given it's the same 14nm process node, I can't see much beyond minor tweaks being done here and there. Early 2017 is going to be fun for CPUS and simming me thinks Cheers
