they all run pretty much the same on my system apart from Normandy... Normandy is not as smooth. What are your specs and settings?

GTX 1080 i7 7700k 4.2GHZ 32 GB RAM
I gave up trying to tweak the settings so went straight down to low/off. Since I'm using the Oculus Rift all I really need is PD at 1.5 and things are quite nice. However last night playing on one of the top servers with about 15 - 20 players in I did get some stutters during startup/takeoff.

Maps in order of performance for SP Free Flight.

NTTR by far the best. 45FPS rare drop in FPS

Caucasus Slightly more demanding 45FPS occasional drops in FPS

PG More demanding 45FPS regular drops in FPS

Normandy The most demanding can usually hold 45FPS most of the time.

With VR keeping my settings the same all low level flying in and around built up areas in helicopters.

My Settings here PD 1.1

All testing done using FPS in game display and task manager to monitor CPU and GPU usage. Oh and seat of the pants as well.

I don't see any significant difference on MP servers except lag events.

Maybe having a Ti and higher GHZ CPU helps you, I just gave up trying I will always get stutter here and there unless I put everything to low/off even clutter/grass, preload radius etc, except trees, I have them at 50%

Okay see if dropping PD to 1.0 and adding MSAA @ 2 gives you better performance.

Both PD and MSAA by themselves are CPU and GPU intensive.

I basically try to keep CPU usage of the core doing most of the work at about 80% it will ramp up and down as well I try to keep GPU usage to around 70% this will also ramp up and down. I do most of my tweaking using task manager.

short description might help.

Just checked that link, I could've swore my GPU said 99% when in task manager last time I started it up and I was only in the main menu of DCS, is that normal? What is the optimal percentages?

Also I've tried with medium/high settings with MSAA at off and PD at 1.0 and still had stutters. Only clears up once everything is on low and off

Oddly the main menu is the only place I get 90FPS. I guess there will be some difference.but I don't expect it to be huge.

On NTTR SP in the above .mentioned free flight I get about 7GB.RAM and 6GB VRAM usage. If I jump onto a.MP server this can hit maybe 12GB RAM AND A TAD over 10GB VRAM but that does vary a bit.

For me I find just sitting on the ground in a heli I get about 80% CPU and 70% GPU usage this is my base line from there flying around the usage will ramp up towards 100%.

Okay what about GPU usage in the main menu screen? Like I said I get 99% usage which I find a bit odd.
