Default Re: Official Flight Simulator X Thread

Yes most of the time I was in the 20s in New York but at least its playable, or controllable, even with all sliders maxed out (FSX is using 1.2GB memory there). I did see a nice gain when I disabled traffic AI. I do think that DX10 might help rendering the auto-gen stuff and free up some CPU resources, which overall should help to increase the framerate.

Another interesting thing were the CPU graphs in the taskmanager. CPU1 was between 90% and 100% (graph looked like a saw) and CPU2 was around 5% and 10% (again, graph looked like a saw). I set the max framerate to 30fps. How much did you set it to?

While Im still not fully happy with the framerate of FSX, its looks so much better and is more fun to play it on my new one.
