Best multiplayer flight to-date!

Flew from PHOG to PHLI in the Hawaiian Islands. Here we are at the destination terminal gate.

Well this could be part of the problem.

Sitting on the runway at PAJN, 1400 Local Time w/static weather.

TFDi 717 - 55-65% CPU usage - 17-26 FPS

Majestic Dash 8 - 19-21% CPU usage  -  40-50 FPS

A2A Cherokee - 15-18% CPU usage  -  38-55 FPS

I just included the A2A as a general aviation example.  Its amazing how much more the 717 eats up compared to the Dash 8.

I sure hope they are working on some Chuck Norris-like optimization.

The 717 is heavy when it comes to systems. They are constantly improving the plane. Good devs IMHO  :thumbsup

Funny thing is that this does not affect everyone.

Hang in there  :thumbsup

Interesting CPU issue. I did some checking on my FSX system and did not have the same problem. Here are the results I had:

FSX sitting at a gate at Anchorage. I have Aerosoft's Anchorage X and it is the most demanding scenery I have:

Orbx Bob (for a "nominal baseline" at PANC) - 18% CPU

Q400 - 26% CPU

PMDG 777 - 19% (engine/systems on too!)

TFDi 717 - 25%

So, unlike your results, the 717 and Q400 had similar CPU results whereas in your case it was twice as high. The difference is, of course, you are running P3Dv4 and I'm running FSX. Also, my FPS had negligible variation.

All things considered, how does the 717 "feel" for you Stardog? Do you notice a performance degradation as a result of the CPU demand?

My system has an i7-6700 CPU @ 3.40 GHz, 16GB RAM, and GeForce GTX 1070 video card.

Interesting.
Ya I can imagine that is the case with FSX. I think P3Dv4 is still very much being tweaked.
As for the difference between the 64bit and 32bit version of the 717 I cannot say.  I have an ongoing conversation about it over on their performance forums. It is an issue for sure because that forum is full of people seeing the same thing.
When I am outside the plane my FPS jumps 20FPS, its just when in the plane and especially with the systems running ready for take off.  I would guess its something different in how P3Dv4 and FSX renders gauges but I cant say for sure.

As for if I notice it, yes I can certainly notice it, I wont say it totally unflyable but its very noticeable in terms of smooth operation.  It is something they are quite aware of just based on  how many threads there are in their performance forums and I am sure something they are working on.  Seems like they very much want to get it right so no worries. I will just see how it goes and as long as it doesnt get any worse I can at least use the aircraft.
