Default 2019 Benchmark thread 2.5 open beta

I want to know how fast your PCs are using a standardized test. Since no one responded, I made my own, short track, which is pretty much worst case scenario using only free modules. Its also quite representative of my flying skills

This may be more a CPU than GPU test, as my GPU utilization rate is pretty low; this could be due to the amount of planes, objects and missiles, but this isnt uncommon in complex missions or online, so that doesnt make the results any less relevant.

If you want to post your results, please follow these rules:

- if possible, disable all overclocks and run your hardware at stock speed (easier to compare)
- Set DCS graphics settings to HIGH preset (vsync disabled).
- Change your resolution to 1920x1080
- I strongly recommend you restart DCS after making any changes and delete fxo and Metashader2 folders or the settings may not be applied.
- Double check your drivers that you are not forcing vsync or other AA settings through the GPU drivers.
- Use Afterburner and start the benchmark when the track starts to play, stop it immediately at the end. Use the log file it creates.
If you dont know how to do that, this will help:

Then report your results along with your hardware config. Below is my result. Feel free to use it as template

DCS 2.5 open beta 2.5.4.30038
Ryzen5 2600X stock speed, water cooled.
3.6Ghz base clock, 4.2GHz boost, actual clock ~4.1 GHz
16 GB DDR4-2133
Geforce 1070 stock speed
M2 NVME SSD

Code:
01-05-2019, 17:13:35 DCS.exe benchmark completed, 12898 frames rendered in 219.532 s
                     Average framerate  :   58.7 FPS
                     Minimum framerate  :   12.4 FPS
                     Maximum framerate  :  112.9 FPS
                     1% low framerate   :   11.5 FPS
                     0.1% low framerate :    5.3 FPS
Reran this test after receiving my DDR4-3200

Code:
10-05-2019, 16:47:19 DCS.exe benchmark completed, 14646 frames rendered in 218.609 s
                     Average framerate  :   66.9 FPS
                     Minimum framerate  :   13.9 FPS
                     Maximum framerate  :  136.1 FPS
                     1% low framerate   :   13.1 FPS
                     0.1% low framerate :   10.4 FPS
You may want to run it a few times, and post your best results.

Hi Vertigo,
nice idea. I´m not sure about the graphic settigs in the replay. Does it display your or mine? I guess mine, so this should have a huge impact on the results.

Your settings, and thats why I asked everyone set them to DCS' HIGH preset and 1080p. If you use different settings or resolution, the results will not be comparable and the framerates will not tell us much.

I also read elsewhere you need to quit DCS, and delete fxo and Metashader2 folders after changing your graphics option settings, or they may not apply. Didnt make a difference for me, but it might, so its probably a good idea.

Oh man, I´ve overseen the "high" advice. My bad. Will repeat the test and post the result and add the settings I actually have for reference.


Here the result with "high" settings:

Code:
03-05-2019, 13:20:59 DCS.exe benchmark completed, 12887 frames rendered in 220.062 s
                     Average framerate  :   58.5 FPS
                     Minimum framerate  :    5.9 FPS
                     Maximum framerate  :  106.9 FPS
                     1% low framerate   :   10.9 FPS
                     0.1% low framerate :    1.0 FPS
The GPU had a load of appr. 50% during the Benchmark. As my GPU is faster than the one from the OP I guess this is a CPU limited result. Which makes sense at low resolutions.

Please read the OP carefully, it addresses both. Vsync should off, both in game and in the driver.
