Hey, i got my hands on the Second Windows Vista Beta version and so i have been playing FSX with vista the last days and it works so muuuuuuuuuuuuch better.

My previous stats were: 178-212 FPS playing with all settings to the max

My current stats are 249-361 FPS!!! playing with all settings to the max

My Spechs are:

Dell XPS 600

Intel Pentium 3.40Ghz
4Gb Kingston RAM
Two Nvidea 7950GTX2 Cards with 512Mb Vram each so 1024Vram in total
320Gb 7200Rpm HD
19" Ultra Sharp Dell Flat Panel
X-fi sound blaster card

Im using Windows Vista 64-bit operating system

So for those saying Vista wouldnt help FSX well i guess your wrong!

Cheers Leo

Wow - your framerates were amazing, even before installing Vista. Most of us are struggling with 15 FPS or less.....

cheers....

So ok i just got tired of the frame rates in FSX and insted of going back to fs9, i decided to just start flying for real. I took my first lesson in a 2006 Cessna 172sp w/ G1000. So i guess you can call me a student pilot now.

Well, if you have anything below 100 FPS you would have a problem.

I need screens, with the FPS and show me a high detailed city like NYC or London, and that will let me know your sliders are really set at max.

are you sure its 24.9 and 36.1 FPS not 249 and 361?

I have a GeForce 7950GT and I get 10 in cities with max settings

I thought FSX is not optimized for SLI though.

I must agree unless you post screens of this I do not believe it. No one has frames like that, nor would it make sense to increase from 100 to 200 anything over 40 is not needed, that being 40 fluid at max setting. Your eyes are not able to see more than about 32.



still dreaming after all these years

It dosn't add up with a 3.4Ghz - that means you have a 32 bit P4, not exactly new technology.

I installed Vista RTM (Release to Manufacture) the other day. Ended up not getting on with it as much as XP so got rid. Maybe I'll try it again tommorow to see if it improves FS.

Just as a benchmark, I have a core2duo 1.86ghz, intel gma950, 1gb ram and FSX runs fine under winXP. Infact FSX was more than playable on my old Centrino 1.2Ghz, Intel855, 1GB ram. So I have no idea how people moan that they cant run it?

It's only because some are unwilling to sacrifice ANYTHING and expect incredible performance out of any and every system as soon as the game is released, which is completely unreasonable...

I thought that, but FSX is very demanding even on lower settings.

Even people with the most powerful pcs should lower the settings a bit. The most powerful computer dosn't mean always that you can run the game with all detail - but you have a choice of stuff, so you can more detailed aircraft OR detailed ground, or sea textures, or AA..........

I have a Core 2 E6700 and a 7800GT 256, an 3GB of Ram, id install vista on it but i am to afraid to partition the drive, if it fails ill loose alot of gigs in flight simulator addons. I have vista on my Notebook and love it. I'm in need of a new graphics card, probably a 8800GTX. I'm glad to see the frames your getting and hopefully when vista comes out DX10 will raise my fps up a bit.

That would seem more believable to me, but we wont know till we get the screens.


25 QFA380 : I have a feeling by the lack of attendance in this thread by the starter we won't get any.
26 Salomon : Hum... have we got a liar?
27 YEGspotter : Maybe the thread starter doesn't know how to post a screen shot?? Anyhow, I too would like some more explanation - the quoted framerates seem far too
28 Dreamer : I don't think we need to wonder, he most likely didn't see his decimal point in the FPS counter and doesn't feel like replying.
29 Noelg : That's the only explanation - even if he were to be getting that speed 270-360 is a hell of a range of speeds - 90fps - most of us don't get anywhere
30 Jetmatt777 : hehe, right, and you are calling 171 and 249 FPS bad? LOL!!! Either his decimal doesn't work on his keyboard, or well he's lying.
31 JD747 : Yes but his card (Nvidia 7950) doesn't support DX10. The only card right now that supports DX10 is the Nvidia 8800. FSX is not DX10 either, I think M
