Looking for information on P3D startup.


Recommended Posts

Bonjour Pete,

May be your informed opinion could help me understand this:

-Same computer
-Two disk with the same OS windows 7, one for P3D stable, and the other for development and test.

On one system the restart of P3D on the fly is very quick, on the other it is very long. I don't see any reason for that, so if you have an idea ?

Sorry, I've no idea, but most likely to do with disk layout.  Two disks? Exactly the same formatted, exactly the same content, installed in the same order, the same way?

I'm convinced there can be enormous difference between freshly installed setups and ones which have existed a while and "grown". in my own case, for example, I have changed my main P3D4 PC. The older one was a 7900X running 4.8GHz on all of 10 cores, the new one a 9900K at 5.5GHz on all 8 cores. A lot faster, right? Also the memory is faster -- 280MHz on the old one 3600 MHz on the new one. So some things would be faster, of course. 

The disks are both Samsung Evo Pro SSD M.2 devices, the installed and enabled scenery is the same.  The P3D settings are the same (well,actually a bit more ambitious in the new one). The add-on are the same. The scenario's in P3D are the same.

The old one loads up at UK2000 to a "ready to flly" state in nearly 10 minutes. Yes -- 10 MINUTES.

The new one takes 82 seconds.

There's no way that the high CPU  and memory clock speeds can account for that sort of improvement.. It just has to be the cleaner layout on disk.

Pete
