Microsoft has unveiled the PC requirements for the highly anticipated Flight Simulator 2020 game.
The new game, which has been able to consume almost all your PC resources in its past versions if you wanted to play under high quality settings, seems to be more user friendly this time.
Flight Simulator 2020 will feature detailed graphics, but most importantly, promises to simulate the entire flying world, including all 37,000 real-world airports, real-life air traffic and up-to-date weather conditions.
According to Microsoft, a minimum spec machine requires at least an AMD Ryzen 3 1200 or Intel i5-4460 CPU. You’ll also need either a Radeon RX 570 or NVIDIA GTX 770 GPU with at least 2GB of VRAM, along with 8GB of RAM, a 150GB hard drive and a 5 Mbps connection.
In order to enjoy the kind of realistic graphics and satellite-image-quality environments that Microsoft has showed off so far, you’ll probably want something close to Microsoft’s “Ideal Spec.” That requires much more recent Ryzen 7 Pro 2700X or Intel i7-9800X CPUs, along with high-end AMD Radeon VII and NVIDIA RTX 2080 GPUs with 8GB of VRAM at least. You’ll also need no less than 32GB of RAM, a 150GB SSD and a 50 Mbps connection, at least.
