With Microsoft outlining the hardware requirements for its upcoming - and visually stunning - return to the world of flight sims with Microsoft Flight Simulator. With minimum, recommended, and ideal hardware detailed it's the latter that will require a bit of a beast to run.
Where CPU-wise you'll need an AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 2700X or an Intel i7 9800X, with either a NVIDIA RTX 2080 or Radeon VII graphics card. Plus, 32GB of memory and 8GB of video memory. It's the sort of hardware line-up that makes sense when you factor in the game's truly stunning visuals.
Just wow. The good news is that minimum specs are quite generous in that it looks like Microsoft Flight Simulator will scale well across a wide range of PC hardware. For the minimum spec CPU-wise the entry point is either a Ryzen 3 1200 or an Intel i5-4460, with either a Radeon RX570 or NVIDIA GTX 770 graphics card.
Here's the full spec breakdown.
Interestingly, the ideal network bandwidth requirement is listed at a 50 Mbps connection compared to the 5 Mbps connection for the minimum spec. No doubt due to the game using satellite data - and the game featuring every airport in the world.
