I have built a baseline OpenMW experience such that frame rate and stability data can be gathered. The only mods used are listed in the reproduction steps in order of their implementation. Getting OpenMW to behave with 2 installs of Morrowind was a nightmare so I changed the location of my old one and pointed the OpenMW Launcher to the new one. Only problems encountered were save game related which were easily resolved.

Reproduction Steps
Clean GoG Morrowind Install
Clean OpenMW Latest Build
Tamriel_data & Tamriel Rebuilt

I under-clock my CPU due to damage to Heat sink and pins, I'm going to save up money next year for a new setup.

https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Xenuria/saved/gP3MZL I am going to eventually try and buy this because of the CPU and the sturdy silence of it's heat sink. I don't anticipate a meaningful improvement in framerate however for OpenMW I could be wrong.

Observation
In scenes where the physics engine isn't the bottleneck the main bottleneck becomes cull, draw and GPU. The optimization of meshes and the absence of mainline mods or addons results in a decent framerate. The ideal is still 60 fps while spinning in a circle with 1-2 grids loaded and a good view distance. I have been able to get closer to that ideal by positioning myself in areas where the bullet sub system hasn't hamstrung the frame rate. There is still an issue of overall efficiency that seems to be holding this project back from something unprecedented.

Some intersting links regarding the physics:

https://github.com/OpenMW/openmw/pull/2070 – Akortunov has tested running bullet in multithreaded mode, with better performance but also with crashes as a result.
https://gitlab.com/Stomy/openmw/activity – A quite new guy, Stomy, is actually trying to make his own collision system from scratch to replace bullet's collision system. If he succeeds, it could be very useful. Bullet will still be used for other things like animation however.

I don't think Bullet is used for animation at all. It might end up used for physics objects (e.g. rollable cabbages) when we start supporting later games, though.

Hmm, then I'm remembering incorrectly. Thanks.

Woy. This forum does not like my pale moon browser. Oh well.

Was wishing for a decent fanless Single Board Computer with opengl and after freakin 18 months of messing with the Raspberry Pi 3, I gave up and got the Nvidia Jetson Nano.
Indoors I'm getting 130-230 fps, in Seyda Neen outdoors approx 32-59 fps at 1920x1080, max view and ai distance and water with medium textures enabled.

It's quite a happy thing! Some videos (which will not stay up long!)

Interesting. I've been hanging around here on Pale Moon for ages now. Of course, being as I'm in the US and therefore have crappy internet anyway, maybe it's just that I have less room to improve if something works really well with it.

Microsoft Surface Go 8gig 120gig model.

Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y
8Gigs LPDDR3 (1,866MHz)
Intel HD Graphics 615
10-inch, 1,800 x 1,200 (in game set to 1280x769)


Max distance set to 6666 with fog set past that so it is not visable.
17-25 FPS in Balmora during night and day
25-60 FPS indoors
30-55 in the open

Max distance set to 6666 with fog set to game default
22-30 FPS in Balmora during night and day
25-60 FPS indoors
40-60 in the open

Will test the mainland stuff in a few.
Going to see if there is a way to have on screen controls since this is a tablet as well for KB and controller free play.

Also will test to see how long the the tablet runs without throttling.
