Micro Stutters With Good FPS

Postby POLETO » Thu May 23, 2019 8:17 pm

I have a pretty good system (I7 8700k to 4.7GHZ and RTX 2070 8GB) i get with the FSlabs (for example) around 30FPS in VC and about 50 in outside view. What bothers me is that when i'm panning around with the mouse using ChasePlane i notice that the movement is not smooth in fact it micro stutters. Even though the FPS remain around 28/30 in VC.

Is there some settings i should play with that particularly effects this? Lowering the graphic settings does not seem to help that much. Just a tiny bit but really not much.

Are there some CPU settings in the BIOS that are particulary important for better performance with P3D. I notice that in flight CPU usage is pretty high even reaching 100% at times.



Thanks

In your case I would limit the FPS in Prepar3D.cfg to 25 and see if that improves things.

And over breakfast I remembered that I should have told you to upgrade the BIOS level to the latest if you don't have the latest. When I did that on my own Z170-A motherboard I got a noticable performance improvement, not only in FSX and P3D.

Any thoughts about Hyper Threading? I tried it OFF and it seems to imporve the situation a bit.

I red a lot about Affinity Masks but it seems a deep deep jungle to me, in the sense that it seems pretty difficult to get improvements and to find the right setting

Try to look at the thread "To Hyperthread or not to Hyperthread" earlier in this august forum, where this is discussed.

I haven't had the chance yet to test yet, can only do so after the weekend (out of town).

Hello
Any news on this since May? I am also getting the micro stutters, or tearing or ghosting while panning.
I have enabled and disabled Hyper Treading but there is not much of change.
Regards

Juan

Do you have the same problems with tearing if you don't use chaseplane?

I also have an 8700K with 1080Ti SLI and I never have such issues, never had them with the old 4790K either. I also refuse to use stuff like chaseplane but that is my prejudice against turning the flight simulator into an arcade game.

Micro Stutters with good fps.

That is exactly the problem I had recently after a full upgrade: Win7 to Win10, CPU, MB and Video.

Took a while before finding the solution: tried the usual diagnostics like new p3d.cfg, delete shaders, video drivers changes, etc... All to no avail.

Then I read in a thread at Avsim, that you could try to check "Disable fulscreen optimizations"
That line alone corrected my problem.
YMMV
Cheers
