I have Just downloaded and installed P3d V4 and the performance is terrible. It runs very very slow in game.
Im not sure what to do?

You have provided exactly nothing to go on, except you say the "performance" is "terrible".

You need to first of all provide:

1. System details (hardware and OS, and yes, it means details)

2. The "performance" you were expecting

3. The "performance" you are actually getting

And that's for starters.

System: i7-7700K @ 4.66 GHz, ASUS Z170-A motherboard, 16 GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM, nVidia GTX 960 graphics w/ 4 GB DDR5 VRAM, Windows 10 Home.

All views and opinions expressed here are entirely my own. I am not a Lockheed-Martin employee.
