SYN_Vander BENCHMARK v6 to measure IL-2 performance

Recommended Posts

This is a benchmark procedure targeted to measure independently the fps performance of different CPUs/RAMs and different GPUs when running IL-2 in a monitor (and VR)
The benchmark is based in a mission built by SYN_Vander. It is a 49 seconds low altitude flight over dense and beautiful train station of Velikie Luki summer map. An external camera view behind an IL-2 and some more planes around. It is a quite heavy scenario.

 

The purposes of having a benchmark for IL-2 are:
- To know if your hardware&software is performing as expected (comparing to peers)
- To know the best CPUs/RAM and GPUs for IL-2.
- To know the performance cost of every graphic setting and the trade-offs (visual gain vs performance)

 

There are two test for monitor and one for VR:
1. CPU test in monitor: Run in 1920x1080 (FullHD) resolution. Here the bottleneck should the CPU.(GPU load should be always well below 100%)
2. GPU test in monitor: Run in 3840x2160 (4K) resolution. Here the bottleneck should be the GPU.
3. CPU&GPU&VR-device test in VR: Settings for 9Million pixels at 90Hz. There are many factor affecting VR performance (device, software ecosystem, FOVs, panel refresh rate

 
You can follow the instructions below to run the two tests in your PC with monitor. And if you have VR you can also run the third test.

====================================================================================================================

====================================================================================================================

 
Instructions to run the SYN_Vander benchmark:

 
Note: Before running this test you should first spend the required time to Overclock your CPU to the maximum (and stable) capacity of your PC. There is multiple info on the web for Overclock.
Be sure to run all your cores at the same manually fixed CPU frequency and set he AVX Offset=0 . So all the tests performed are run at the same CPU frequency with no CPU throttling.

 

1. GET YOUR PC INFO
 
Install and execute the free tool CPU-Z from: https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html
Collect the following info from CPU-Z:

 Motherboard: MSI Z97M-Gaming
 CPU:                 4790K
 CPU Freq:        4.8 Ghz
 L3 cache:        8 MB
 Cores:               4 (number of active physical Cores)
 Threads:           4 (HyperThreading is better off. If Cores=Threads then HT is Off, But as you wish)
 RAM type:        DDR3
 RAM size:        16 GB
 NB Freq:          4000 MHz (or Uncore Frequency)
 RAM Freq:        2933 MHz (this is 2xDRAM freq if Dual channel)
 RAM Latency: 12  (CAS Latency CL)
 GPU:                 1080Ti

 


2. INSTALL measuring tool:


Install Fraps (free fps measuring software) from: http://www.fraps.com/

Run Fraps. 

Under the "general" tab, uncheck "fraps window always on top". 

Under the "99 fps" tab, set benchmarking hotkey to "P". 

Also check and set the "stop benchmark after __ seconds" to 60 seconds

 

fraps.png.71e1a57fef2674d1a67f7a46a5763d8b.png

 


3. INSTALL SYN_Vander benchmark mission:
 

Get the mission benchmark zip. Download it from here:

 

Benchmarkv6.zip

 

Unzip it and drop the files into your "IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\data\Missions" folder as shown below:

 

putmission.thumb.png.5095504796142cee2a6dff40b35eb4dc.png

 


4. GPU Panel settings and GENERAL IL-2 Settings.

 

Turn off any IL-2 Mod to run the test.

If your GPU uses Nvidia G-Sync or AMD Free-sync, you must switch it off to don´t limit fps during the test.

Game: Map Scenery  Distance to 20Km.


Also in your NVIDIA (or AMD) control panel put the following (or closer for AMD) settings:

I use all global (I think mostly default) settings for IL-2 except Power to "Prefer Maximum performance"

5. RUN CPU TEST in 1080p

 

Start Fraps, if it's not already running.

Start IL-2, set IL-2 Graphics option to the below and re-boot IL-2 to make changes effective (all maxed-out except mirrors-Off, Clouds-Low, AA-Off, SSAO-Off, HDR-Off):

 

CPU_settings.thumb.jpg.8cf9d9ee13ee476d6da31b29eff39c5c.jpg

 

Go to Missions, set Realism to Normal and select BenchmarkVx mission.

 

selectmission.thumb.jpg.69573cd2fb45e2189d9b429dc7d12f65.jpg

 

Press Start button. Then the map view appears and press Start button. You should see this:

 

v6view.thumb.jpg.7a840c2090306e67af92dd799eaaee60.jpg

 

Wait about 25 seconds to be sure all building are loaded in the scene.

Press "M" one or two times to hide the Map. (The IL-2 fps/FOV counter can be left on, it doesn´t affect performance). 

If Icons are shown press "I" to hide icons.

Press "P" to both: Start the Fraps measurement and unpause the mission. Then enjoy the mission run without touching anything.

 
6. RUN GPU TEST in 4K

 

Note: If  monitor doesn't support 4K, you previously have to create custom resolution in NVidia Control Panel. Once you create and save the 4k custom resolution, it will show up in game as an option:
Right click on Desktop > NVidia Control Panel
Manage 3D Settings > Global Settings
Set DSR Factors as required to be equivalent to 4K (8.3 Million pixels).

 

Set IL-2 Graphics option to the below and re-boot IL-2 to make changes effective (all to minimum except Cloud-Extreme, MSAAx8, 4K-Textures-On) :

 

GPU_settings.thumb.jpg.8123ca4edb415a192945f8a3a956e5a0.jpg

 

Go to Missions, set Realism to Normal and select BenchmarkVx mission and Start button. Then the map view appears and press Start button. 

Wait about 25 seconds (load buildings)

Press "M" to hide the Map. And "I" to hide icons if shown.

Press "P" 
 

7. REPORT RESULTS.

 
Find the folder you installed Fraps. Inside that folder there is a "Benchmarks" folder and inside that you will find a "FRAPSLOG.TXT" file with the Frames, Avg, Min and Max fps values.

There will be also the recorded fps in *.csv files that you can open with notepad or excel if you like to plot them.

 

Report your Frames, Avg, Min, Max values for CPU and GPU test in a post with ALL your system specs from section 1 (IL-2 release, Motherboard, CPU, CPU Freq, etc)
 

I will compile all collected info and will update it in the below spreadsheet, in SYN_Vander tab:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1gJmnz_nVxI6_dG_UYNCCpZVK2-f8NBy-y1gia77Hu_k

 

 

8. VR TEST (OPTIONAL)

 

Set SteamVR %SS to a value to reach around 9Million pixels (both eyes, this is 100% in Index, 100% in Reverb G1, or 1.26 Pixel Density in Oculus Rift-S, ).

Turn-off any kind of ASW (Motion Smoothing, Motion Reporjection, etc).

Set IL-2 Graphics option to the below and re-boot IL-2 to make changes effective (Preset to HIGH, then all settings to Off or Low, monitor view just at 1920x1080) :

 

VR_settings.thumb.jpg.9eab9df483c5f8f71679b03010fc10c0.jpg

 

Go to Missions, set Realism to Normal and select BenchmarkVx mission and Start button. Then the map view appears and press Start button. 

Wait about 25 seconds (load buildings)

Press "M" to hide the Map.

Press "P" and don´t move your head while the mission run.

Anyone with a new Intel/AMD CPU or NVIDIA/AMD GPU???

Previous Intel/AMD CPUs or NVIDIA/AMD GPUS are also very valuable to check if new hardware is worth the upgrade.

Post your test results here and I will update the table.

In my test I changed the Fraps timer to 60 seconds because the Fraps timer of 49 seconds ends way before the mission ends. These 60 seconds were more in line.

I kept HT on.

The waiting for the CPU test was > 25 seconds. I waited for the drop in FPS (from 168 to 138) to stabilize.

The screen resolution for the GPU test on my system was 3440 x 1440 (older DELL widescreen).

 

These are my results:

I have to go full screen with GPU test because all menu tabs will be hidden when using DSR 4K with 2K monitor. Is that fine?

Thanks.

Yeap, It was really 60 seconds. I have corrected that in the instructions.

Your test is quite amazingly good in VR. Definetely I have to upgrade my PC. Your RAM speed for sure contribute to that.

It is fine. The Full screen should not affect performance in GPU test.

this resolution is about 4.95milion pixels whereas 4K is 8.3million. That´s why you had a higher number using the same 1080Ti.

I don´t know if you can use other resolutions adjusting the DSR in NVIDIA panel to be closer to the 8.3 million pixels. 

Meanwhile I will mark that score in yellow just to be aware it was run at a different resolution.

I also has been thinking about this amazing result in VR. You are pretty much close to 90 fps. This means you have a good CPU/RAM. But it also means that maybe this VR test is too much relaxed with the settings and if it is much of the time at 90 fps we will not be able to measure improvement or compare the 9900K with other powerfull CPUs from AMD or Intel.

 

vr.png.8beb1ec257213d91d874fa025d3b90ca.png

 

I was choosing all in-game settings for VR at low level thinking and even the most powerfull CPU/RAMs will to be close to 90 on average. But you prove that I was underestimating the power of the lastest CPUs. The 9900K is so great!!

 

So, I would propose you a favour for me. Could you please increase the in-game settings of the VR test until your avg value is around 65fps?

For example, increasing the Preset to High or Ultra, and perhaps also increase shadows. So I will use them to define the settings to run the VR test. Thanks.

First I ran the same Low VR settings as yesterday to rule out any latest updates that came today.

Then I ran balanced, high & ultra without touching any of the other graphics settings.

And last I did the test on 4587x1920 screen settings.

 

Low
Frames: 5272 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 87.867 - Min: 68 - Max: 91

Balanced
Frames: 4454 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 74.233 - Min: 47 - Max: 91

High
Frames: 4255 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 70.917 - Min: 44 - Max: 91

Ultra
Frames: 3793 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 63.217 - Min: 44 - Max: 91

4587x1920
Frames: 5568 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 92.800 - Min: 75 - Max: 109

 

PS. This mission by Syn_Vander just goes to show how incredible beautiful this sim is...😀

Thanks for this.

On the monitor I see you are fully aligned with my test, a bit lower but your total pixels is abit higher. So that´s OK.

 

On VR I think the best choice would be to pick the High Preset (yellow line). I have modified it in the instructions for the VR test.

Hello, first 5600X Ryzen benchmark. @chiliwili69
I have 0 time right now but I managed to do at least the CPU test. 

Important note: I didn't OC the CPU max just yet, just used the auto PBO, no manual tuning. Same with memory and GPU (These two are stock). So I guess you can push a lot more %.

 

 

Motherboard: Gigabyte Aorus B550 Pro
 CPU:                Ryzen 5 5600X
 CPU Freq:        4.7 Ghz
 L3 cache:        32 MB
 Cores:               6
 Threads:           12
 RAM type:        DDR4
 RAM size:        16 GB
 RAM Freq:       3600 MHz 
 RAM Latency: 16
 GPU:                 Gtx Asus Strix 1080

WWWWHHHHHAAAATTTTTTT??????  That´s absolutely amazing!!

A 300$ CPU is going quite beyond a 500$ 9900K at 5.1GHz.

 

This new Zen3 line has surpassed Intel by a big difference. God bless AMD!

I had the same face as you when I checked, I even did it twice, 1 fps difference (even higher) in the first run.

 

Also, in MSFS 2020 some "benchmarkers" are also beating the 10900K by a good margin.

 

They did it and I can't be more happy with tons of AI in Career 😁

You signature say 16Gb at 3800MHz,  was it a typo?

Do you also fly in VR? (If yes no rush to run the benchmark as well). Do it when you have time. It will be also amazing.

No, I had stock speeds for this test. I didn't have enough time to play with it just yet! only enabled the XMP. I will redo the test with more OC in the CPU and with the RAM as it is in my signature.

 

NOTE: Yes, 16 Gb, not 12. My bad!

 

Sadly, I don't have VR as my old CPU was really bad.

Hello! @chiliwili69. Tried to contact you via PM but no avail!
 
In the benchmark I posted I misstyped the GB of RAM, I have 16 not 12. Sorry as I was preparing for work, things got messy with the Keyboard.

 

This weekend I will push the CPU to the max alongisde RAM.

 

 

Thanks for all your work!

That's verry impressive, Gallahad!

Looks like AMD demolished the false claims that flight sims only care about high boost clock. 

 Glad this missconception was finally put to rest.

thanks for your test. This is pretty much aligned with previous Remagen test with the Ryzen 5 3600X versus my 4790K.

But on the G1 you obtain a really good performance, beyond what I could expect based on the CPU test. I understand you run it at 90Hz right?

Well, i have an Ultra Wide Monitor with 2560x1080p, so i sadly can´t do any GPU Test.

 

You can use a DSR factor of x3 and this is the same pixels than 4K. Look at the Instructions of NVIDIA panel.

It would be nice to see how that beast 3080 performs.

Yes, NB and Uncore refers to the same.

very nice, the first 5800X.

But It wold eb better to run it not at auto (since the freq maight vary) try to run at a fix freq.

Hi chilli yes i do run my reverb at 90 hz , i really don't like the strobe effect from running at 60 hz even though the performance is much better. I have tried overclocking the cpu but find i get slightly better performance from precision boost overdrive.  I will post some more results when my g2 arrives and also my 5600x although I'm on a long waiting list for the cpu so maybe not anytime soon.

BTW, Did you check that GPU load was at 100% during the test? Just to be sure CPU was not the bottleneck.

You can monitor GPU load with MSI afterburner

Thanks. I understand you run the GPU and VR tests with the CPU at 5GHz, right?

Checked that with MSI Afterburner. GPU was at 100 % whole time.

 

After that i did a second run with all grafic stuff on highest settings at 4k. If someone is interested in these results, here they come:

Thats correct . Stock speed test is made with cpu test settings. My rig is getting obsolete 🙂

I made two additional CPU tests. At a frequency of 5.0 and at a frequency of 5.4. it Seems that overclocking the processor is no longer needed.

Nice! Looks like this new AMD gen is worth the hype in flight sims!

I still need to do some OC to the RAM and CPU, sadly no time availible.

 

btw @WallterScott you have a nice, nice chip! my friends weren't able to reach 5.1 with their 10900K

Thanks again for being always at the top of the benchmarks!  😉

 

From your CPU tests and comparing the 5.0GHz test with the another 9900K at 5.1GHz you get 13 fps more.

 

I understand that 10 cores at 5.4GHz will generate a significant amount of heat. Versus the Ryzen 5 5600X at 4.7GHz.

 

It is also interesting your GPU test. You achieve a higher number than the 3080. Did you do any special OC over the GPU?

 

You really do a good job overclocking the Intels, I wonder how far you would go with the new Ryzen Zen 3 line.

Unfortunately, the chip is mediocre (SP 63). Good CPU overclocking thanks to cold water. I have a chiller.

IL2 is a weak load. I think a successful chip with a good water system can 5.3-5.4

Yes. This is the msi 2080ti lightning z and it is quite overclocked. But it's still weird. 3080 should be stronger.

I was waiting for you to create this test again)) It is very interesting to see how the new AMD processors will behave. I'm thinking about buying 5950x. Simulators don't need as many cores, but it looks like the top models have the fastest samples selected.

What resolution has your monitor? Did you use DSR?

 

Did another run, thought i did something wrong at the first GPU Test. This time the result is a little bit higher, but not more compared to the 2080 TI.

Hey @chiliwili69,

 

Quick suggestion for the main post -- rather than say match settings, can you post the startup.cfgparameters for video? Should help ensure compliance + rapid retests with a quick cfg swap. 
 

My Specs:
 Motherboard: Gigabyte Aorus Pro AC / F11G Bios (I will retest when the 3600mhz/XMP bug is fixed)
 CPU: AMD 5800X (Noctua DH-15S air cooling)
 CPU Freq: 3.7ghz/4.8ghz boost (highest boost HWMonitor saw during test was 4840mhz)
 L3 cache: 32MB
 Cores: 8
 Threads: 16
 RAM type: DDR4
 RAM size:  32GB
 NB Freq: 3600mhz (AMD user / infinity fabric freq)
 RAM Freq: 3600mhz
 RAM Latency:  CL16
 GPU: EVGA 1080SC (non-TI) 

This is essentially stock, I can test again at a later point with +200mhz offset (I hit 5040mhz while testing the rig out, holding off on OCing until I see more data online from other 5800x users).

 

CPU Test Results:

First Run / 3200mhz
2020-11-22 19:57:19 - Il-2
Frames: 7354 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 122.567 - Min: 109 - Max: 166

Second Run / 3600mhz

2020-11-23 12:09:25 - Il-2
Frames: 7329 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 122.150 - Min: 107 - Max: 165

 

VR Test Results - Valve Index / SS @ 100%: (All settings as instructed)

2020-11-23 12:19:32 - Il-2
Frames: 4697 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 78.283 - Min: 48 - Max: 91

 

I believe I am now GPU bound here in VR more than anything.

Updated BIOS, XMP bug fixed, running 3600 instead of 3200mhz now.

Thanks for this new test. The differences with the 2080Ti could be due to:

- Highly overclock of 2080Ti

- Additional load that the DSR factor may apply to the card.

 

To be sure about the second point we can do a simple test for anyone having 2 monitors or TV (1080p and 4K). Run the GPU test with the native 4K. Then run the GPU test with the 1080p monitor using a DSR fctor of 4.0. And compare results.
