Measuring rig performance: Common Baseline (for IL-2 v3.010)

Recommended Posts

So, a performance test doesn´t need to be long.

The problem is that you are basically interested in a sustainable clock frequency under load. The issue with todays electronic goodies is, that they basically ALL cheat. They are not running 100% to specification but will "naturally" overclock a bit. Every mainboard does that by default. and if a board can be kept cooking for 20 minutes, you don't know wheter you can do that for 10 hours. Or 3 days.

 

What torture test do you use? Bench? How many threads? 4?

20 threads on Prime95 for multithread. It can do that, then you have a vague reason to assume your system can batch convert video files with Handbrake. Everything else will make a BSOD before you can leave your chair.

 

If your goal is to run IL-2, you will see that IL-2 (in VR) is much less demanding than the Prime95 test in terms of CPU heating generation. So, if you goal is just IL-2, you could achieve a higher stable overclocking not capped by thermal throttling or CPU power limits.

 

I'd be veary running a system such that propper sytem usage will make it BSOD. Not with this beast. Although BoX takes the crap out of one (in reality maybe two) cores, on a 10 core system (real cores), this is little load. On a dual core, things will go into the red, as the whole system is maxed out. On the 7900X, I get two cores fluctuating to max. 4500+ Ghz, the other core maximum ~4.3 GHz and the hottest core gets 65°C. It is just no load to speak of. You do that with Prime95 and one singe thread, I have 73°C on the core the thread runs, while of course, the package remains at 60°C.

 

Over the thumb, I see no improvement to speak of for Intel cores since the Core 2XXX Series as long as you got a good bin that tolerated higher clocks. As long as you have a decent cooler and enough power from the mainboard, they work fine.

 

With Coffee Lake (8500K, 8700K) Intel squeezed about the last drop out of of this same 'ol. I strongly doubt the 8700K will go to 5 GHz on all 6 cores. But the usage scenario of this chip probably precludes 12 threads, so you're fine faking a performance it can only deliver when it doesn't have to deliver. And with 6 cores it is not that obvious like with 10 cores.

 

Can you try to run the CPU Passmark with the 7900X with no boiling water inside?

 

passmark_neu.jpg

 

The worker thread is running on 4.5 Ghz core. It is the max that I allow in BIOS. Difference was that the fan came only up half way. And in a first run, I forgot that I had Prime95 running with a single thread in the background. It had no impact at all in the result of passmark. Crazy.

 

The BIOS for the X299 boards are total turd. To the point of broken. So I expect performance of the 2066 socket systems to increase with later itarations.

 

 

You could do a series of Passmarks tests with the 7900X at different fixed speeds (4.0, 4.1, etc) being sure there is not thermal throttling.

I might try that.

 

But I truly went for single thread performance (what a waste) I would have to disable cores in the BIOS. Then I could crank it much higher without having to fear an "accidental" load spike the kills the system into a BSOD. On a 4 core system, load spike is maybe 100% more power, on a 10 core system it is 500% more power. BSOD.

 

 

We didn´t get any test results for the 7900X. It would be interesting to know how it performs with the IL-2 VR test, but using only the monitor. The instructions are in the first post.

 

I might try that as well. Still having to figure out how to make best use of it. the problem ist that a lot of features in the BIOS are not "functional" yet and with this Rampage VI Extreme I do not have absolute control over things. Still running a beta BIOS.

Thank you for posting your results with just monitor. I put them in the monitor tab. Did you used HIGH or ULTRA preset?

Reaching 5.0 with your 2600K is a nice OC.

Based on your monitor results in 4K, I think your system will be quite valid for VR. Have you tried VR?

 

For comparative purposes, it is better to run the test using the settings of the first post. And then optionally try other higher or lower settings.

Ultra. Everything was on max, plus few effects from Reshade eating couple more FPS. 

I feel like 5.0 Ghz is max, wont go further unless I'd slam it with 1.45 voltage and for minimal gains there is no point in doing so.

I havent tried VR, though 600 m away from my home is a shop offering various VR sets and possibility to test them. I might try that out. 

 

I will, when I find some time. This was unfortunately a working weekend for me.

dynamic resolution factor absolutely makes a huge difference in game. (VR only) testing with this current track may be limted.

 

I have gained +25fps in the most challenging situations that were destroying me to unplaybe levels.

 

(See my post one topic down in this same VR hardware re: god rays and fps)

 

I am finally running close to 90fps at all times now with my dynamic resolution factor set to .8 as the solution. (as the devs said drf was esp useful for VR in update 2.009)

 

“this feature is especially useful in VR"

 

indeed it is!

 

https://il2sturmovik...update-2009-vr/

 

Perhaps a new test track down the road would incorporate gound combat over stalingrad w city rendering and explosions etc, ground fires, sun rays with heavy clouds and bombers

Well, I ran my tests again, and I'm still seeing a really nice FPS bump on the benchmark track at my mostly-maxed out settings with dynamic resolution turned on at .8, as appeared to be the case with my first test of those settings earlier tonight.  But I'm also still seeing no bump at all (even a minor decrease) when I'm running my usual settings with OVRdrop/map on, even with dynamic resolution turned on at .8. 

 

I knew from my previous testing that OVRdrop was costing me some FPS, but I don't know why it seems to completely negate any benefits I'm otherwise getting from turning dynamic resolution on at .8.  

 

Certainly makes me want to run some tests with the new beta Oculus Home 2.0/Dash and try to use it instead of OVRdrop to inject the map into the game, if I could just figure out some way to display a map image in a window edge to edge, instead of surrounded by the usual Windows border stuff.  Hopefully someone will drop by my thread ( https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/32803-need-help-finding-image-viewing-app-box-map-images/  ) with some info about an app that will do that.

I believe is a good set of settings, i.e., not pushing it too hard with the i7+1080ti, e.g., High general, SS 1.4, not too much on the other parameters

 

When you said 1.4, do mean Oculus Tray Tool or SteamVR?

If you refer to SteamVR, then with a 1080Ti you can easily go to 2.5 or even 2.8 without affecting too much your fps


 

 

Frames: 5359 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 89.317 - Min: 87 - Max: 90

 

This shows that your CPU is limiting your experience at High settings.

 

Stalingrad with fire and smoke is a demanding scenario for CPU. There is nothing you can lose by trying a moderate OC (let´s say 4.5).

Last month (without dynamic resolution on, i.e., at 1.0):  Frames: 3922 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 65.367 - Min: 44 - Max: 91   Today (with dynamic resolution on at .8):  Frames: 4796 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 79.933 - Min: 48 - Max: 91

 

This is a quite interesting test with the Dynamic Resolution Factor (DRF), which devs said "On a regular monitor, quality degradation is more apparent than in VR HMD, so this feature is especially useful for VR"

 

So, it helps for the test when the avg is far from 90.

I don´t know how this DRF is implemented but I suppose it will work as an automatic controller (PID type) trying to keep the measured value (actual fps) at the desired value (fix at 90 in VR) by manipulating two things: scene resolution and particles in special effects. So, it will need to measure a significant and maintained drop in fps to start acting in the resolution/particles.

 

In any case, I neglected this DRF from the beginning (thinking that I always wanted full resolution), but it could solve many fps problems for critic moments. I will need to give it a try.

Just out of curiosity for myself, what does the OVRdrop map give you over what the in game HUD mini map or the large map gives?

Just out of curiosity for myself, what does the OVRdrop map give you over what the in game HUD mini map or the large map gives?

 

Well, for one thing, the FPS drop from OVRdrop seemed to be less than the FPS drop from having the HUD on.  For another, it lets me use the map from PWCG (and/or from IL-2Planner) that has the flight plan and target marked on it, which the in-game mini map does not.  And it lets me put the map exactly where I want it, down inside my cockpit, as if it were down on my knee - IIRC the game's mini map stays in the same place (i.e., bottom corner of the screen) regardless of where you're looking in VR.

 

I didn't mind so much the slight loss of FPS compared to what I was getting with my mostly-maxed settings with dynamic resolution turned off, but it's quite a higher FPS penalty compared to the recent test results with dynamic resolution turned on, so it would be nice to figure out how to replicate the OVRdrop capability in the new Oculus Core 2/Dash environment (assuming that's not going to have a similar FPS penalty with it).

Gotcha,  having the PWCG Map available is a nice plus, I may have to give a try.

 

Have you installed Rift Core /Dash yet? My performance whilst HUD active seemed to increase some after that.

I've installed it, but am not yet using it.  I wanted to get some new benchmark results first, plus I wanted to figure out how to display the map image edge-to-edge.  I'll probably try to run some tests regarding the effect on the HUD, but I don't need/want to use the HUD for anything but the map so I was trying to just address that issue directly.

Thanks for posting your Passmark.

 

The i5-4690K is showing a particular performance. While it delivers a good Single-Thread Passmark (STMark) number, it does not deliver the expected performance in Il-2 VR that other intel CPUs (mostly i7) are delivering.

 

It is the same for the three reported cases of the i5-4690K (doog442, Mick_00, SYN_Repent), they about 15fps below than expected.

 

The expected fps is based in the linear correlation (STMark vs. Avg fps) of all the tests.

 

I don´t know what particular features are in an i7-4790K which are not in i5-4690K

what are the differences between the I5 and the I7? hyper threading?

 

Historically it has been hyper threading - I-7 has 4 cores and 4 virtual cores - and L2 cache, I-7 has little more.

 

I myself disable hyper threading on my I-7 as it has no real benefit for gaming.

Depends on the game, using 8 threads is getting to be the norm. I expect games using less than 8 threads to be a rarity in a year or two given the quad core officially died on October 5th, 2017 after 6 months of life support.

For the top of the line hardware players, I do recommend the following. Fly an hour with max settings (ultra), shadows high, oculus Pixel density to 2 or SS-SteamVR to 4, and when starting in game, press and hold ctrl+numpad2 for a second. 45fps locked, no ASW, sharpen off, AA off. Butter smooth movements of camera, no artifacts. Markers and HUD off.

 

I thought a bit out of the book. It works for me, now I have beautiful graphics and a very high supersampling - I got quality, no pixelation, I can spot well, and, low and behold, ID much better.

 

Please give his a try for an hour and report back.

Its plain odd. I have the same processor OC to 4.3 and yet there appears to be a massive difference between my results CPU mark 8659 single thread 2482 and SYN_Repent  @ 10375 and 2704 in the post below. 

 

I overclocked to 4.4 and the difference was minimal. Also Mick_00 is OC to 4.5 yet his scores are 8572 / 2630.

 

I can accept the 10FPS more based on the faster card and overclocked memory but I'm still scratching my head at my rigs awful performance.

Yes but more importantly how does it perform in the actual game for you?

 

My results were not good at all when I tried this some time ago, and in no way compare to the very good performance I get flying my missions. In the test track, my video card actually down-clocking. Flying in missons, some very complex ( PWCG ), it runs full boost speed. Big difference.

Doog442,

 

Your CPU at 4.3 deliver a right STMark(2482).

 

Based in other CPUs test, every 0.1 GHz of CPU overclock is equivalent to a +60 in the STMark.

 

If you overclock your CPU to 4.5 you should have an STMArk of 2482+60+60=2602, which is more aligned with the Mick_00.

 

Now then another questions is about why having a good STMark, the fps performance is low than expected.

 

The hyperthreading is not delivering any extra fps, we have done test with it. So, perhaps the L3 cache or the number of threads is the reason.

That´s strange. With such a CPU+GPU you should achieve around 70avg.

 

Please, report what is your CPU Passmark and also your Single-Thread Passmark as indicated in the first post.

Also, what is your RAM speed?

 

Have you thought to OC your CPU more? 4.6 for example? (with a decent cooler is pretty easy, look at this thread https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/29881-overclocking-4790k-better-bos-performance/

That's because your CPU can't keep up with the graphics card and AA is done entirely on the graphics card. Thus altering resolution, AA or pixel density will have no impact on your frame rate unless you bump it up high enough that the graphics card becomes the choke point.

I assume you are using either Precision XOC, or MSI Afterburner for your video card overclocking.

Take a peek at the monitoring whilst running this track file for the test, see if your video card is achieving max boost speed for the temp it is running.

You may find it is doing like mine did, and not boosting at all and perhaps even down-clocking a little. 

 

Also how does it perform in game, versus running that test? Mine achieves max boost clock on my EVGA 1080 Ti throughout each mission and performs very well.  Running this test with the trk file, not so good.

We have very similar hardware specs.

RAM speed is 1333 so I think I have a lot to gain by upgrading it. 

 

I mistyped my cpu speed, it is atually at 4.5. I have extensively OCd my 4790k and I think I lost the silicon lottery because mine will not go past 4.5 stable without significant overheating. This is with a 212 Evo in a Corsair Carbide 540 high airflow case. 

 

I'll run the passmark benchmarks when I get home tonight

I have put you in the results table and based in your STMArk, you should have 21.7 fps more.

The clear guilty is the RAM speed. If you decide to upgrade it try to go to 2600 or above.

You said 4.5 is your max stable overcloking, what voltage (Vcore) do you use for 4.5 GHz?

Actually 4.5 is not bad, that is what I have had my 4820k running at for the last 4 years.  You might could get a little more but would likely have to really pump some voltage into it, personally I don't think the minimum gains would be worth the risk to the system.

 

Please take a look at what your GPU is doing as I mentioned earlier, whether it is boosting properly to full speed, during running that trk file for the test. 

 

Also turn on the fps display in game , just flying a mission in game, and see what your fps are looking like ( if you have not already). And also how smooth it is.

ive been looking at cpu upgrades, and if cpu core speed is the key factor here, then the I3 8350k can reach 5.0ghz easily, what do you guys think? does I7 make that much of a difference? or is it purely core speed?

For BoS and DCS, single thread performance is the biggest aspect. I suspect there is little difference between the i3-8350k and i7-8700k at 5.0 GHz under ideal conditions in BoS and DCS. That ideal conditions part is a hell of a disclaimer though. If absolutely anything else is running in the background, including windows downloading an update, you will see significant performance loss. The reason is there just isn't much left over for background tasks after accounting for BoS or DCS. I cannot recommend a quad core cpu without HT/SMT for anyone for any purpose. I suggest looking into the i5-8600k or older i7-7700k instead.

That´s a difficult question. Based in the recent tests with your current CPU (4690K) we have seen that Single-Thread Passmark performance doesn´t imply necessarily good performance in BoS.  There are other factor in place like caches or number of threads that we don´t know how they influence. The real thing is that we don´t know what is the real performance until we try it.

 

It would be certainly good that someone with an i3-8350K or i5-8600K (or with access to them) can run the performance test just to know how well it perform. You can ask in the general forum if someone has an i3-8350K or have access to it (some IL-2 players could work in PC shops), and ask them to run the VR test...

 

I have been taking a closer look at the VR tests table and there are some tests of the i5-6600K which have just 4cores/4threads (like the i3-8350K) and it is following well the STMark correlation. So, based on that, the i3-8350K should also be a good candidate.

 

In fact, the more cores your CPU have the more difficult will be to overclock. Some test of ZachariasX with the 7900X (10 cores) shows that it is an absolute beast for multithread applications, but in singlethread is not particularly great since it is difficult to go beyond 4.5 GHz.

 

Sooner or later someone has to try the i3-8350K with a good cooler and good OC.

Still life in the old 3570k for a bit yet (non VR anyway) GTX1080 is coping very well with 4K @ Ultra all max SSAO and HDR off
 
all in all I am very happy with my salvage and upgrade job, maybe these tests will help with data even if not VR, specs as per sig
 
 
Cheers, Dakpilot

 

 

:good: 

 

Glad you are back up and running!

Thanks for posting your results. People with only monitor tests is welcome, the results are reported in a separated tab.

If one day you decide to go to VR,  you will not regret it.

Some more interesting tests:

 

With a new Corsair h100i v2,  I tried going for 4.8Ghz but was very unstable and I suspected droop. So I attempted some LLC and acheived somewhat stable results if I only stayed in game.  The results were pretty cool @4.8Ghz when wildly unstable:

 

2017-12-18 20:00:20 - Il-2
Frames: 5167 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 86.117 - Min: 60 - Max: 91

2017-12-18 20:02:32 - Il-2
Frames: 5270 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 87.833 - Min: 67 - Max: 91

 

( this was completely unstable with BSOD's.) soo..

 

When i did get as stable as possible, the results were not worth the effort it seems:

 

2017-12-18 21:24:41 - Il-2
Frames: 5098 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 84.967 - Min: 56 - Max: 91

2017-12-18 22:35:21 - Il-2
Frames: 5080 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 84.667 - Min: 56 - Max: 91

 

...and even then, while seemingly stable in the sim,  any stress test would continue to BSOD in minutes.  I am new to LLC so I assume I was overdoing it one way or the other (too high voltage I suspect)

 

soooo..I overclocked the 1080GTX FE 10%power, +200 Mhz Gpu and +215 Mem Clock and got:

 

2017-12-19 15:12:11 - Il-2
Frames: 5133 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 85.550 - Min: 61 - Max: 91

2017-12-19 15:31:38 - Il-2
Frames: 5133 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 85.550 - Min: 61 - Max: 91

 

Perhaps more could be squeezed as I learn more abt llc levels, etc. newbie. If I could lock my Vcore at 1.380 I think Id be stable.

 

Also the 1080  GTX has another 10% perhaps

 

EDIT:chili, dont add to the chart yet though, for some strange reason I cannot replicate min 61/ 85 after going back and checking. not sure what happened

I've been benchmarking my new CPU and let's just say I don't feel like I won the Silicon lottery. Granted, I haven't delidded yet.

 

I'm curious though. What kind of loads are on the CPU while playing in VR? What percentages are we talking about? I guess I'm wondering mostly how close these CPU loads in the stress testing softwares, compare to the CPU loads while playing BoX in VR?

 

Upgrades:

-MSI Z370 Gaming Pro Carbon

-i7 8700K

-Coolermaster MasterAirmaker 8

-Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) 3600MHz

-Samsung 960 EVO boot drive
