Fantasized for months to get myself a Nvidia GTX Titan card after reading reports and youtubes about the phenomenal boost in FSX/P3D performance with it. The past weekend, I finally made to get an over-clocked Titan X seated in my system.
My first impression about the card out of the box — of course it gives both FSX/P3D simulators on my computer a boost, but disappointingly, it is still not up to a “wow” level…well…may be a little, to be fair.
Surprisingly, under the original and slightly adjusted settings from the previous GTX 780 card, FSX in general outperforms P3D in terms of performance gain with the Titan card. The latter is supposed to gain more benefits when more CPU calculations are off-loaded by the graphics hardware side.
Anyway, it’s too early to lay down any conclusion about the gains the new card can bring to both my simulators after using it for just a few days. Will further experiment on the card with different settings and configurations in order to explore its optimal capability.
One thing for sure, running FSX/P3D on three high-res 2560 x 1440 monitors has never been an easy task for any single card to handle — not even with the GTX Titan X which is already one of the fastest graphics cards available on the consumer market nowadays.
Hm…perhaps a newer motherboard with a faster, latest generation CPU are needed in the next hardware update in order to fill the simulator pit.
Will post my cfg file settings later once a more satisfied result is reached.
