I too am experiencing some poor performance at the field. Currently running P3D 4.4 and I don't use any shaders, or FS Global (not sure if that's what it's called). Apart from scenery, my install is fairly vanilla.

I'm getting about 14 FPS at KLAS, whereas I can get significantly higher at fields like FT KBOS, KTPA, KMDW, etc...

In the configurator, I've pretty much killed most of the items I think would mess with my FPS, including the fountains, the displays on the strip, volcano, etc.

These pics are taken from position D58 (but it happens anywhere on the field after looking to the northern end or the part of the city there).
So as you can see, I am completely able to reach really good FPS, but after looking around a bit, it drops to the one on the second pic. And, god knows why, stays that low...

I think I may have found the culprit. with the Bellagio fountains on I'm getting 18 to 20fps. There is a brief pause between the fountain shows, and fps jumps up to mid high 30s to low 40s. After unchecking the fountain show in the configurator performance was smooth at high 30s to low 40s. Can someone else check to see if the fountains are causing fps drops?

I've deactivated everything already in the configurator, but lags still occur :( I still hope that I am not alone with these lags...

No, same goes on for me, almost everything unchecked in the configurator but still unflyable

I loaded PMDG 737NGX to Gate D58 and I have 39.8 FPS and it jumps to over than 40 FPS. GSX working with jetway just fine. I think is P3D Settings giving good FPS. I did a second screenshot showing 31.6 FPS when I look from inside the plane and it drops not lower than 28.

Yes oddly enough I get better performance with the NGX, however it still isn't fantastic.

With and without ORBX Socal is about a 10FPS difference for me. I know ORBX Socal is pretty heavy to begin with but that's quite a difference. Would love to make the two work together, but so far the solution is to deactivate Socal when approaching KLAS.

I was only using the default R22 to do some exploring today and overall I was happy with the performance, although I will definitely turn some settings down for when I visit in something more substantial, such as the NGX - I've experienced similar issues elsewhere so it's nothing new - for instance running the NGX at dawn at ORBX KSAN with dynamic lighting enabled is a 7-8 fps slideshow for me even just sitting at the gate.

Considering I was flying around sunset - for the ability to both explore in daylight and also catch some of the lighting effects - and considering the performance issues inherent with flying at such a time even in vanilla scenery - I must say it was all rather smooth, except for when a certain area near the middle of the Strip would enter the view. I wasn't quite able to exactly isolate it, but it seemed to occur no matter how far away I was, and would return to smoothness after passing it. Probably one of the effects, but it did seem to be highly localized. Most of the time I was able to maintain a locked 30 fps (vsync), but in this vicinity it would drop to say 16-17 or so.

That said, this scenery is stunning. Buzzing the Strip, you almost feel like you're in a video game. I didn't know most of this was even possible in P3D!

I'm using 4.4 and i'm also getting poor performance. I have turned off all things in the config that would affect performance but it hasn't changed much for me.

Hi all - Just to add to the performance discussion, I have noticed some odd severe drops in performance on a couple scenarios. In the FSLabs A320, I started a flight at KLAS and performance was actually quite good, even surprisingly so with 25fps avg. This is what I would normally experience at any addon airport with the FSL Bus and AI traffic limited to 50. Taxi out and departure was just fine.

I then did a return trip back to KLAS. Beautiful clear skies and AI traffic limited to 50 and on approach to 26L experienced severe performance issues with FPS dropping to 8-9 once I was 7-8 miles out. Almost an unflyable approach. Once landing it continued to be very bad even with AI traffic turned off. I was even getting flashing ground textures while taxiing to the gate. I have most of the frame-hitting city settings turned off such as all of the effects and cars, fountains, etc. Starting a new flight at the terminal I am back to good performance again. An odd issue for sure....but it is a beautiful scenery.

System is i7-6700k @ 4.4 with 1080ti

I think we all could share P3D settings and from there to do FPS tests …
My settings:
DISPLAY:
FFA=ON; AA=2xSSAA; Texture Filtering=Anisotropic 16X; Texture Resol=Ultra 4096x4096; VSync=ON Triple Buff; Target Frame Rate=Unlimited.
LIGHTING:
Dynamic Reflections=Medium; Shadows=Medium/Medium
WORLD:
Terrain LOD=HIGH; Tesellation=HIGH; Mesh Resol=2m; Texture Resol=15cm
Scenery Objects:
Scenery Complex=Ext Dense; Autogen Draw Dist=HIGH; Autogen Veget Density=Very Dense; Autogen Building Dens=Ext Dense
Special Effects:
Detail=High; Distance=Medium

Graphics card NVidia GeForce 1080 Ti and PC Alienware R6 i7-7700K CPU @ 4.2Hgz (overclocked 4.4GHz) 4 Cores 8 logical processors.

I am still testing with Clouds which it seems to degrade performance when is selected.

I got nearly the same settings:

My settings:
DISPLAY:
FFA=ON; AA=4xSSAA (8xMSAA @ Night); Texture Filtering=Anisotropic 16X; Texture Resol=Ultra 4096x4096; VSync=ON Triple Buff; Target Frame Rate=45FPS
LIGHTING:
Dynamic Reflections=Medium; Shadows=Medium/Medium
WORLD:
Terrain LOD=HIGH; Tesellation=HIGH; Mesh Resol=2m; Texture Resol=15cm
Scenery Objects:
Scenery Complex=Ext Dense; Autogen Draw Dist=HIGH; Autogen Veget Density=Very Dense; Autogen Building Dens=Very Dense
Special Effects:
Detail=High; Distance=Medium

PC: i7 8700K @4.8 Ghz overclocked, 16GB DDR4-3000 RAM, NVIDIA MSI GTX1060 Gaming X 6GB.

Turned everything off/down in the FT Configurator. As several times mentioned before, I am able to receive really good FPS, but somehow/something turns them down suddenly to about 12FPS and keeps it there.

I had poor performance too, until I disabled all the vehicle animation (Terminal, Strip, E, N, S). Even though the configurator says they all have "small" impact, I found these really decrease frames more than any other item on my system.
