Mod hat is permanently off now?News of my demise is greatly exaggerated.
So it seems as though some content creators have gotten the green light to share gameplay now. Here's Quill18's first video (of three so far) on MSFS 2020:
CPU-wise they didn't mention whether clock speed or core count what matters most, I certainly hope that my 7700k @ 4.8Ghz will keep up.One thing to bare in mind is the power of your pc. This thing needs a beefy graphics card to show its colours.
Digital foundry have a video playing the SIM in 4k ultra with a ryzen 3900x and 2080ti and its hitting between 30-40 frames a second.
If you go to a more mainstream graphics card like Radeon 580 or Nvidia 1060 then at 1080p medium settings your looking at around 40 frames a second.
Nvidia cards seem to be performing better in the build they had. However they were using dx11, so dx12 may balance things out a bit for Amd.
The demanding nature of this game is also worth baring in mind if you want to take up the vr option when its available. I think its safe to say you will need to be chugging 2080ti, Titan level cards to play at higher detail levels
Digital foundry also said the game appears to bottle neck quite a bit on the CPU, So run an older CPU and your SIM may take a further hit performance wise.
I have a 1080ti, I'm not worried about the performance on 1440p, but in VR I think I'll need to go for mid settings with cartoon clouds.
I don't think even next gen top-tier GPUs will be up for the task to give it justice in VR.
