Unstable frame rate performance with GTX 980 SC
Has anyone seen this problem? I just recently purchased a GTX 980 SC from EVGA. With a fairly clean installation in instant action I am able to see frame rates between 150 to 300 FPS. Within a few days these can drop to as low as 60 frames per second. Does anyone see this bizarre behavior? I am using Windows 7 64-bit.
The same behaviors were seen on my previous card GTX 770 SC from EVGA. The only way to remedy this is to restore a backup of my operating system. However in a few days it goes back to this poor performance. I have been suffering with this problem for three or four years and have tried numerous things to no avail.
Also I find that if I’m running BMS and use the Windows key to drop out of the desktop. When I returned back to flight the frame rate will instantly have climbed by 20% to as much as 50%. What accounts for this?

…and you see the transition between 60 and 120/300 FPS…?..or is 60 FPS slideshow for you?

Yeah anything 60+ is awesome so it doesn’t make any difference. You can’t notice anything that fast (Even TV only refreshes at like 24 FPS) so the only difference between 60 and 300 is e-peen.

Check Nvidia control panel. add the Falconbms .exe to a profile there, then set it to use the graphics card always at full power. Then make sure the multi display compatibility mode is set to what you use. That helped my dips, only mine were at lower fps range.
What is e-peen?
I can actually detect better smoothness of joystick control with high fps. Is this true?
I can actually detect better smoothness of joystick control and TrackIR with high fps. Is this psychological or real?

:drink: The actual refresh rate that your eyes are exposed too is dependent on the the display hardware and its driver settings not what your GPU is telling you (FPS).
My 24" SyncMaster is restricted to 60hz while the small LED ASUS will refresh up to 75 Hz & the advertised responce time for any given monitor is a weighted average and is often overstated, and dependent on the colors involved.
As display tech is rapidly changing any thing we read can be old news tomorrow but any thing above 40 Hz for a flight Sim is good. For First Person Shooters it would only be adequate.
