Bought new Dell G7 laptop (GTX1060, hex-core i7H, 16GB RAM, SSD, HDD ... yadda yadda) and at stock settings (RF G5.5), suffers from very slow fps (24). Let it install its ancient DirectX 9 when prompted. Tried full-screen, no v-sync. Checked settings and all parms are very minimal, which ran great on on dual-core i7 Dell laptop. This while plugged-in.



Any quick fix? TIA

I always recommend upgrading to RealFlight 8 it's a lot better sim in my opinion. So if you can grab it.

Have you checked in RealFlight Settings, to see if RealFlight is utilizing your Nvidia GPU or just running off the Intigrated chip?
Check Main menu: Simulation>Settings>+Graphics>Hardware>Graphics Adaptor

Are you sure realflight is running on the video card not the integrated cpu graphics. You can find it in the settings I forget which sub category it is in. You should be getting 100+ fps from the gpu. your 24 fps sounds like cpu speed

Well ... I don't know what was wrong. I uninstalled RF G5.5, reinstalled, fired it up and it worked fine at over 300 fps. Set parms where I liked and got around 125 fps average. Big mystery. Sigh. Thanks for all the suggestions!

Luckily, got the AUO display (luck of the draw) which may be bumped to around 100Hz. refresh...
