I changed the main system to the latest i7-7700k. With 16gb ddr4 at 2133, and the same GTX1070. I also tried 2 cards:
2 cards slow down your XP11 system! I did a check. A new i7700k system, with a 1070 on 3 screens gives 30+ frames. Same system, now added a 1050ti to power 1 screen, and then 1070 for the remaining 2: 25-30 frames. Just to let you guys know! No benifit!
Always wondering what to invest in for upping my FPS. Well, i did invest in an I7, gave me little to none FPS update. Well, i asked the group on facebook if a new i7 cpu would do the trick. The verdict was do not invest. Then i upped my core i7 4770k from 3.5 to 4.2 mhz (overclocked) and this did give me a FPS boost of about 7 to 10.
Recently i upgraded my rig from an i5-4670k to an i7-4770k. Adding more threads i thought would bring a increase in framerate. Unfortunately it hardly did. I am guessing and reading up, and it seems that only the clockspeed will do that. The i5 was a 3.4 and the i7 is a 3.5 clockspeed. Not much better. And that proves to be the case.
This is a one person cockpit build, you need less room and for my purposes it suites fine. I always fly alone! one person cockpit also allows for a smaller main screen. the footprint is less. 43inch suites me fine. i do not think i will be upgrading to a beamer, or a 55 inch tv any time near. All screens are HD, furthermore, check the hardware i use in my other post.
I started the build in November 2017. Below you can see my first photo's. Before this build it was a desktop setup with 4 monitors or more. Tried tons of setups, with tons of monitors, even a beamer. Never got the emersive experience i have now. I can highly advise this setup if you have the space for it.
It's about time i started a proper blog about my hobby. I will be posting tips, updates of my SIM and other issues i am finding and how i solved them for you all to enjoy. First off, i am not a pilot, and my hobby is to build a sim that has the cheapest, most emersive experience. Pardon my english language faults, english is not my native language!
