The latest system requirements for Microsoft Flight Simulator, which will land on the PC platform on August 18, have also been announced, following the recent announcement of a list of 30 aircraft models and 40 airports. Naturally, if you want a more realistic, stunning visual, you need a more powerful PC to run it.
According to Microsoft’s official specification list, the minimum specifications for AMD platforms are Ryzen 3 1200 processors, Radeon RX 570 graphics, 2GB of virtual memory, 8GB of memory, 150GB of mechanical hard drives, and 5Mbps bandwidth.
The ideal configuration for running the game is the Ryzen 7 2700X or Intel i7-9800X processor, Radeon Vll or NVIDIA RTX 2080 graphics, 8GB of virtual memory, 32GB of memory, 150GB of SSD and 50Mbps bandwidth.
Microsoft officials say the flight simulation 2020 has a number of features that it hasn’t previously had, and are designed to create the most authentic aircraft to fly, including:
Realistic landscape: There are more than 1.5 billion buildings, 2 trillion trees, mountains, rivers, roads, etc.
Real world: including real-time traffic, real-time weather and animals.
Highly simulated aircraft: From light jets to large aircraft, each aircraft has a highly realistic cockpit and near-real-world instruments.
Dynamic weather and black and white days: Players can turn on the real-time weather system to experience real-time weather, wind speed, wind direction, humidity, and more, allowing them to fly at night.
Aerodynamic modeling: The new physics engine allows players to experience the most authentic flight experience.
