So what sort of specs does a Flight Sim PC need?
If you didn’t already know, running the latest and greatest in flight sim titles requires some powerful components. Not only do you need some of the best graphics cards on the market to deliver the stunning details at 1440p and 4K resolutions, but you’ll also need some of the best processors available too; the faster they are and the more cores they have, the better they’ll be able to cope with the demands of games like Microsoft Flight Sim 2020. That is, assuming you want to play the game on the highest settings of course...
If you’re willing to dial back a few settings here and there, or are looking to play at 1080p, then getting some capable hardware becomes much more achievable. We wouldn’t recommend using anything less than an Intel Core i7 or AMD Ryzen 7 processor, as well as having at least an RTX 3070 or RX 6700 XT, with a minimum of 16GB DDR4 RAM. NVMe or SATA SSD storage is also preferable, since this will help keep loading times as short as possible.
