Resources under utilization

Postby simman » Thu Nov 28, 2019 3:57 pm

I have an x8086 OC @5.2, a 1080Ti oc @2025, PiMax 5K+ headset and when in P3D v4.5 in mid to high settings (2048/x16/4SSAA) I am getting around 15 FPS in VR in most payware addon airports. The funny part is that both my CPU and GPU are running in 50s% utilization and temps are around 50-60C too. What gives?

Thanks,
Mustafa

What is your meaning of Resources under utilization?

the GPU and CPU (as the resources) being at 50s% utilization are underutilized while getting FPS in the teens. With bad weather, the FPS goes below 10 :(

"CPU Usage is a good thing i.e. preferably below 50%."
CPU under utilized even when system running slow.

Thank you Jorgen and Vaughan;
I did review both threads and my P3d configs are standard (mid to high settings), and no infections of any kind. I just updated my Nvida driver to 441 and still, the problem persists. The GPU is around 50-60% utilized with temps in early 60s% and same on the CPU, while in-game I am getting 29-32 FPS and 10-15 FPS in VR :(

I mean I have a 12 thread CPU overclocked at 5.2GHz on all threads, GTX 1080Ti OC edition overclocked at 2050 Mhz, Samsung 1TB .M2 and the Task Manager > Performance tab is showing everything at or well below 50% utilized across the board!!!

I am baffled :(

Is your default flight the LM F22 at KVPS ?

Without VR and without PiMax 5K+ headset in use (basically default P3D setup) and when using the default F22 at KVPS what are you getting?

Ok, I think you're on to something here. I started out with decent framerate and it deteriorated gradually as I added more add-ons and the single thread (thread 0) is overloaded and seems to be the problem. But I still see the CPU and GPU not getting worked! Look at the framerates and Task Manager performance in the images below:

LM F-22 at KVPS
FPS = 87
CPU = 29%
GPU = 48%
Image

LM F-22 at Aerosoft Frankfurt EDDF (high texture quality)
FPS = 44
CPU = 30%
GPU = 32%
Image

LM F-22 at Aerosoft Frankfurt EDDF (high texture quality) + Active Sky (bad weather)
FPS = 39 (after screenshot went down to 32!)
CPU = 27%
GPU = 32%
Image

LM F-22 at Aerosoft Frankfurt EDDF (high texture quality) + Active Sky (bad weather) in VR
FPS = 7.5
CPU = 23%
GPU = 67%

Mustafa,

Your first three screenshots (Image) did not post.

Your first was:
LM F-22 at KVPS
FPS = 87
CPU = 29%
GPU = 48%

What is the same test with VR in use?

Just came to this post.
I have a hexacore but in task manager only one figure of CPU is shown, not those 12.
How can I correct it?

What have you selected?

Do a screenshot of what you see.
