FS9 Benchmarks!!

Post by heeshung » Tue Sep 30, 2008 2:56 pm


Everything on Ultra High, and on Hardware tab, resolution at 1680x1050x32.

Anti-Aliasing enabled from in-game, render to texture checked, transform and lighting checked, trilinear filtering, MIP mapping quality at 4, hardware rendered lights at 6, and global max. texture size at high.

These settings were for the benchmark. Of course, when I actually play, I will need to tweak these settings (e.g. set max. texture size to massive [lol, forgot to do that for benchmark]). I did not install my X52 yet, so i was controlling the plane via keyboard. Of course, for this benchmark it is a fresh install with standard AI traffic, no add-on's whatsoever, and of course, no add-on scenery or texture packs.

These shots were taken after leaving from the default airport of Seattle-Tacoma, and the city pictured is Seattle.

Lastly, keep in mind that FS9 is NOT multi-core or multi-GPU optimized, and that I had a bunch of background programs running.
