I am new to x-plane 11 and am running it on the following windows 10 64 bit system:
Intel i7-9700kGigabyte Z370 Aorus Ultra Gaming 2.0 motherboard16GB Gskill DDR4 2666.8 Mhz RAMNvidea GeForce RTX 2070 OC 8GB graphicsMy monitor is an MSI Optic AG32CQ running on a resolution of 2560x1440 @1444hz
I hoped that my system would allow me to use x-plane 11 on high graphics settings, however no matter if the graphics settings are set to maximum settings or minimum settings, I cannot achieve a frame rate of more than 15, which results in the warning that minimum frame rate has not been achieved.
I have no plugins for the x-plane and my system does not appear to be being taxed by x-plane.
Would welcome any thoughts or advice on how to remedy this issue.
I'm just another simmer in the UK, but the short answer must be yes, you should be getting way higher than 15fps with that RTX graphics card & CPU!
My system comprises Windows 10 64bit, i7 8700k CPU @ 3.70 Ghz, Geforce GTX 1070 @ 8GB DDR5, 1TB M2 hard drive & 64 GB Ram and I'm currently getting over 60fps, even flying over True Earth GB terrain.
The only thing that stands out slightly is that your RAM has a lower capacity than mine, so maybe this is something you could look at?
Alternatively, before changing any hardware, go to the following URL https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Software and download the free system test tool. Run the test just to see how things are currently, this should advise if there are any issues with your components?
Hope this helps for now
Your system should definitely be achieving much higher frame rates than 15. I have a very similar setup as yours (2070, 1440p, 32GB, a lesser i7), and consistently getting mid 20 or better at just under maximum rendering, depending on scenery, aircraft, weather, AI traffic etc. 16GB of RAM should be good enough under most scenarios, unless you have very high resolution Ortho scenery and many other apps running concurrent to X-Plane.
One thing to make sure is if you have multiple monitors, have them be driven by the same RTX 2070—i.e., don’t enable any integrated graphic hardware.
Like Greengolfer has suggested, use something such as Windows’ Task Manger to check whether the CPU and GPU are getting their expected utilization.
The GPU at 40oC means it’s hardly working up a sweat. It seems practically idling!
My RTX 2070 typically runs at 60oC+ when cruising in XP11; 37oC when at rest (no 3D activity). And the GPU Load can also be a telltale sign (see Task Manager). In clouds, I’ve seen it approached 100%.
