Hi Guys

 

I am a long-term sim fan and have been using since the start!

 

Does anyone have a decent graphics setup for 2019?

 

I have an i7 6700k @ 4.8

Evga FTW 2 GTX 1080

32 Ram

 

Using a 165 hz 2k screen.

 

Thanks

 

Gary

 

 

could probably maxx out most settings except terrain shadows if you limit your refresh rate to 60hz... maybe more.. terrain shadows are the biggest load as far as i can tell.. not sure how well the 1080 or th 6700k will do at cranking out 165hz of 2560x1440 DCS though..

Do u want to use TrackIr ? With TrackIr u need to See if u get stutter or not. I personally need to keep FPS at 60FPS. This i make with RivaTuner.

 

Settings. As already mentioned be aware of shadows and as well preload radius dont crank these too much out.

 

I have a 7700k and an 1070 OC. With these i can keep frames steady at 60FPS with Mid Settings.

 

Texture: High

Terraintexture: Low

Civil traffic: Off

Water: Medium

View Distance : High

Heat blur: Low

Shadows: Flat

Cockpit Resolution: 512

MSAA: 2x

Effects: Off

Grass: 510

Trees: 50%

Preload Radius: 85000

Anisotropic filtering: 8x

Terrain shadow: flat

Global Cockpit Illumination: On

VSYNC: Off

 

Hope this helps. I translated it from German to english so i hope the Description is right

Cheers guys I have managed to get a steady 72- 100fps on most things maxed with G Sync. Enjoying DCS very much now!

 

72-100 FPS are useless and DCS will stutter.

Fixed stable and not fluctuating 60 FPS (on a 60 Hz. Monitor) will give you a much

fluid experience. See my post here:

That only applies to TrackIR users.

 

With Gsync you have usually zero stutter, neither looking ahead or panning around, as long as you do NOT use TrackIR, if you use TiR then you likely need locked 60fps.

 

BTW, he has a 165Hz sceen.

Your assumption is not correct. I am NOT a TRACKIR user.

I saw that, I also saw that you were referring to a 60Hz screen whereas the OP is using a 165Hz Gsync screen. Similar to many others HW here and those do not need to lock to 60fps for smoothness

w/o any stutter. As long as no TiR is involved with panning.

 

I do see the need to cap at 60fps if it is run on a 60Hz screen and also no Gsync, I agree fully

 

*you may have the wrong Monitor for gaming, IPS, 76Hz, 5ms, that all points into that direction, if yours is the ASUS PA 329 Q modell.

* I also did not say you are a TiR user, I just said it's OT, as it doesnt apply with the OP's questions and HW setup.

 

All good:pilotfly:

Fine....

 

You understood perfectly.

60 Hz. / 60 FPS equals = perfect smoothness.

 

I am well aware that mine is not a "gaming monitor"

(by the way 60 Hz and not 76 Hz...)

but I am very happy with it, both for DCS and shooters.
