Good day Chris,
I have a system very similar to yours and I get 50fps with lots of stuff to the max... you should check a post on the X-Plane.org forum here to set few settings within Windows and its power management. You will see below my settings for my system; keep in mind that even if I have SLI (2x GEFORCE GTX 1080Ti), I only use one as X-Plane does not recognize the 2nd video card. I have found that having numerous AI aircraft are killing my FPS like crazy! This is why I have decided to eliminate all AI aircraft (makes the flight a bit less enjoyable but FPS are back to normal).Find below my settings for NVIDIA Control Panel and X-Plane:
Hoping this will help a bit to get a bit more FPS... BTW, are you using a single monitor? I have noticed that if you have multiple monitors and using the FPS utility within X-Plane, you have to multiply the FPS provided by the amount of monitors you have! This is why you will notice the green numbers in the top left counter: this is the FPS counter from NVIDIA...
Thanks so much for your reply. I replicated your settings and loaded a stock Piper and was unable to get more than 20fps. Really infuriating!
Thanks for trying though.
Do you think there are any Windows settings that could be affecting this? I have disabled Windows Defender and that didn’t make much difference either!
