Hello everyone, just installed the simulator today. I have a high-end system. But trying to fly with Cessna 172 and in the cockpit, and even without taking of standing still, the FPS is around 25-32 FPS. When flying it’s still the same.
PC specs are:
i9 9900 @ GHZ
64 GB Ram
I have the latest nvidia driver as well.
When I check for the optimization suggestion videos on youtube, most of the players get better FPS like 50+ while with even a 2070 VGA card.
I turned on the FPS monitoring tool in the simulator. (I don’t have the Steam version) It mostly stays in red and says limited by mainstream. When I’m in the menus and not flying, FPS is always green and above 100+
I don’t know what to try. When I ask about this, everyone is suggesting me to tweak the settings like turn off vsync and reduce that etc… but, with my settings I don’t think I would need to do that to gain an FPS over 40 or 50 in a Cessna.
At this point, I’d suggest benchmarking your PC with a popular benck mark app, and compare results. also, watch Temps. there is deffo something wrong here, but I can’t put my finger on it, this is leading me to thing thermal throttling (absolutely could be wrong on this)
You should be able to just Alt+Tab to get to it, although if you start HWmon, then run the sim, then close it down, you can look at you maximum measurements within HWmon and see if anything looks too hot (personally certainly ang gpu/cpu reading about 80deg C is cause for concern). But alt tab should be enough to see if anything is a problem,
