Thankyou for posting results. What are the display settings you are using when achieving those frame-rates?

Re: 2019 build for p3d v4.5- here I. go again!!

Also, relatively poor memory timing can be masked under some expected flight-sim situations. Every graphics card on the market is made to handle 1080p graphics, and you are likely to see processor improvements drive the frame count higher with better RAM. However, if you are planning to run Triple 4...

Re: 2019 build for p3d v4.5- here I. go again!!

Best memory advice is simple: Remember, Check in BIOS to CONFIRM that XMP is TURNED ON/ENABLED. [Recently, I was helping another in troubleshooting a system which had appeared to be under-performing with P3D. One of the things I advised was confirming XMP timing profiles were enabled in BIOS, which ...

Re: Upgrade my GPU?

Also, waiting til next year covers the spread, just in case Lockheed-Martin holds true to historical form, releasing a new generation of Prepar3D every couple of years. How old is Prepared v4, now? Everything we know about planning and sourcing a build optimized for Prepar3D may need to be thrown ou...

Re: Upgrade my GPU?

Going from 4790k to 6700k gets you much faster DDR4 RAM support (4790k boards overwhelmingly supported DDR3 only) I think buying anything less than a 9900k will feel dated in two years when EVERYTHING new will be programmed for the next generation of consoles in mind which are all 8-core/16-thread p...

Re: Monitor upgrade

But, for what it's worth, here are some numbers: The best deal I've ever seen for 1440p, 27" 144hz was an on-sale price of $279 @ NewEgg for the Acer XG270 [purchased circa Dec1,2018] . So that's $840 minimum for a three-screen setup, assuming the sale had not been LIMIT ONE PER CUSTOMER. Non-sale p...

Re: Monitor upgrade

Not in Prepar3D. If you are pushing over 100+ frames, then you should up the textures, go to 1m landmesh resolutions and up the reflection and draw distances!! I'm kidding (kind of). I think the problem with 144hz for your simulator is the inevitable draw to go tripple-monitor. That will become absu...

Re: Viewtracker?

Unfortunately, the head tracking is not calculated by onboard integrated hardware like in TrackIR. Instead, it's a calculation offloaded onto the primary CPU through software. The website says too expect a 5% hit on CPU recurses. Damn shame. I wanted to use Tobii, but dammmit I need my CPU's! I gues...

Re: Viewtracker?

Tobii, maybe? Their website says they have supported head & eye tracking for Prepar3D starting in April, 2018

Re: Budget Build For P3D V4.5

Unless a canadian dollar is worth .50 cents in New York, then I think you're way overpaying for the performance. Your CPU choice is horrible if buying new today, and the cost of that OLD motherboard is UNBELIEVABLE (old 4core i7 7700k for $475, ASUS Prime z270 $389). Since, I don't think you are the...

Re: New PC Build Review

I'd suggest you open a brand new thread for build advice, then copy/paste your last post into it. Make sure to include EVERY add-on program feature you MIGHT want to utilize for importing into the sim: weather, air-traffic, ground traffic, lighting, shading, ATC, Terrain, et cetera .....Also, includ...

Re: internet adapter problems

Swap an old LAN card into the case and confirm the problem persists. My suspicion would be a component failure somewhere on the circuit. Go find the box of old hardware cards from the days before every motherboard had an integrated NIC. [NIC = "Network Interface Controller," which I'm using intercha...

Re: New Build results

Make sure you go to Samsung website to download drivers for the SSD.

Otherwise it will run great, like every other SSD, but you won't get the advertised performance bonus you paid extra for the Samsung for without the custom Samsung drivers

Go to advanced search
