Many developers have been showing off their products in Lockheed Martin’s new P3Dv5. FSDreamTeam has released two videos comparing the FPS between P3Dv4.5 and P3Dv5 using their Chicago O’Hare v2 (KORD)
The first video shown here displays Prepar3D version 4.5 and the classic World Travel A321 parked at the gate at FSDreamTeam’s O’Hare and you can clearly see the FPS jumping between 20 and 37 which was the highest it reached, but still with a consistent speed when the camera moves around the aircraft. Do keep in mind that this is an old FSX default aircraft and requires very little to render and use. As to the specs being used in these previews, the only piece of hardware we know is the GTX 2080 Ti was used for these tests.
In this second video, it shows a dramatic improvement in performance jumping from as low as 40FPS up to nearly 70 frames per second. With a very smooth camera movement around the aircraft. Of course, depending on what is being rendered in when looking around, FPS will vary. With the right hardware, users may be able to get very pleasant performance out of addons like PMDG, or FSLabs.
Other than this, FSDT has confirmed that all their products will be ported to work with P3Dv5 at no charge to the user.
