Was wondering what the highest FRAME RATE figure is that people have had ?

I hit a whopping 92 FPS yesterday.... I was flying the Learjet, across the Dominican Republic with standard Scenery, but an add-on Terrain Map (from 'Holiday Resorts' add-on)....

All Graphics settings on High or Very high, where applicable...

Has anyone ever had a figure over 100 ?

FL330

KATL-KIAD

FR=100-110

Only lasted a few moments though. If I hadn't been paying attention, I would have missed it.

MY FR is usually around 30-40 while on the ground taxiing. I have my settings set to med high-high.

They will sometimes dip down under 25, but not too often.
Why is it that most ATC controllers can't drink coffee and direct traffic at the same time?

Very similar to my ususal Rates, Aviator......

I'm generally happy if I'm above 25, and 99% of the time they are.... A couple of add-ons are hungry..... the worst I have is the Wilco Bombardier CRJ, which can pull things down to about 15 if I'm taxi-ing in a big airport...... but usually I'm near the 40+ mark, which makes for luxurious smooth flying - even with graphics set HIGH... Laughing Very Happy

The best plane for Frame Rates for me is the PMDG 737NG, which is amazing when you consider it has the best exterior model and the most complex Panel.

(No, I'm not on commision from PMDG!)

I'm capped at 27 and more times than I care to say I drop drastically over a busy city like L.A. or the other day Sydney.
With my low level computer I doubt that I can get very high readings.

What systems are being run to get these fantastic framerates??

The highest frame rate I've gotten thus far is 85FPS, with all the sliders pegged over to full blast. If I load real-world weather, frame rates drop to about 30 or so. With real-world weather and near any major airport, I'm lucky to see 6FPS. Overall, I guess my average frame rate is around 25-30FPS. I'm running an AMD AthlonXP 2000+ at 1.67GHz, 512MB of DDR333 RAM, single 80GB Maxtor ATA133 hard drive, and a 256MB GeForceFX 5200 video card, if that's at all important. The video card is soon to be replaced with a 128MB Radeon 9800 Pro, or a reasonable facsimile.

FEM,

How long ago did you buy that card? I think you got ripped off very, very badly....

You really should be buying parts off of newegg.com. Its cheaper, customer service is amazing, and you normally get better warranties that at normal stores.
