Persian Gulf benchmark

Recommended Posts

A baseline benchmark for a variety of systems would be helpful. Thus I have an attached track (F-18 ) and my own results. I've also made a pair of videos showing system resource usage (not recorded during bench runs). This does bump GPU usage up a little. Of particular note is the CPU usage. Despite claims to the contrary, DCS very clearly uses only 1.5 threads both in VR and at 1080p. It is also the bottleneck at these fairly high settings despite the mission being empty save for the player aircraft.


System specs: i7-8700k at 4.9 GHz, GTX 1080 Ti @ +20% power, +50 MHz core, +100 MHz memory and 16 GB DDR4 3200 CL16


First up is 1080p stock configuration (enter bios, hit restore defaults, this also sets RAM to 2133, I also restored stock 1080 Ti settings).

FPS min: 91

Max: 177

Avg: 130.65


VR stock configuration:

Min: 39

Max: 91

Avg: 51.69


Overclocked 1080p:

Min: 107

Max: 196

Avg: 155.27


Overclocked VR:

Min: 41

Max: 91

Avg: 59.27

Edit: set fraps to 120 second benchmark.

I assembled a new computer yesterday.


Its basically the same as yours except I got a 1080 non-TI and I got 32GB of ram at CL14, same freq.


Will see if i remember to report back.

Nice testing, but what do you think about STUTTERS?


I am pretty sure after days of testing, that the main reason for stutters is that

some situations / terrains jump from 20 to 50 FPS or more all the time.


Either 30 or if possible 60 stable and constant, only this guarantees fluidity.

(for a 60 Hertz monitor).

Anything else than 30 or 60 stutters like crazy with my setup. 120 is not reachable,

but I guess a stable 120 would be pretty fluid too.


No way to fly in Nevada or Normandy, (Stutters due to jump from 20 to 50 FPS or more all the time)


Caucasus and PG are most of the time OK, with eitner 30 or 60 FPS STABLE.
