Microsoft's flight simulator, an upcoming game designed to bring real-life scenarios of flying an airplane, just got a list of system requirements needed to run a game. To play with Flight Simulator, you would at least need to have a quad-core CPU like AMD Ryzen 3 1200 or Intel Core i5-4460 equipped system, along with 8 GB of RAM. For graphics, you would need a GPU with at least 2 GB of VRAM, where the requirement is either AMD Radeon RX 570 or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 GPU. Another interesting observation is the requirement of 150 GB of drive space, meaning that this game will be pretty big. Internet connection needs to be 5 Mbps at minimum, and as you up the resolution and graphics, you would need a faster connection. You can check out the entire table below.

The need for incrementally faster connection comes out of one reason - adaptive streaming. The game looks stunning, and if you wish to play at the highest quality, parts of the game will be rendered in the cloud. Microsoft is using its Azure infrastructure to help and render parts of the game and stream it down to your PC. This ensures that your PC is capable of playing the game and Microsoft is showing how they can tap the power of cloud for uses like this.
 
I expect there will be some awesome graphics for this simulator.

    Well I was going to get this when it became available ... not so sure now
     
    32 GB system RAM .... seams very high ...
     
    What is MS thinking needing 50 Mbps bandwidth - for best quality ... I do not want to be forced to use any MS service to "play a game" - much less Bing

    Wow, 150 GB game.  I'm sure that will increase over time.

    Their "ideal" spec calls for 32GB of RAM? LOL ok bud and why the hell would anyone need 50mb bandwidth to play a flight sim? Even if it's online and connected there is no way in hell 50mb bandwidth is going to be needed unless this is a streamed game service like Stadia or GeForce Now.

    World map and textures are streamed in from microsoft servers. This was announced or leaked a while ago. I don't remember if they announced or leaked whether an ugly-looking offline mode will be available.
     
    edit:
     
    Over 2 petabytes of data potentially available to access from Microsoft's servers.  An accurate 1:1 representation of the world down to the centimeter level?  I'm not so sure about that, but we'll see.  Probably major cities and landmarks will be very high detail, but I am skeptical whether the houses and streets in the middle of nowhere will be substantially less fuzzy and blocky compared to what we are used to from Flight Sim X.  We'll see.

    I was wondering how it would manage to store the data but streaming for the microsoft servers makes sense but it also makes me wonder about the long term support the game will have. For a flight sim if it's good people could be playing it for a long time.


    The video mentioned use of an offline mode.  He also seemed to be talking from the perspective of it running on a console.  So hopefully the PC version will allow a full offline install otherwise yeah I can see that being an issue.  Man that video looks amazing though.  If it can show that kind of detail on current systems and somehow manage to stay @ or above 30FPS.  I was thinking of switching from FSX to Prepar3d 4.x but I might hold off and see how this goes since we're probably talking $60-70 for this vs about $200 for the "correct" Prepar3d license.  Benefit of going with the LM product for me though is that most of my scenery addons already work with it (OrbX and REX Texture Direct 4.x) and I just have to buy a few planes at some point like a new version of the PMDG 737 that I really like and some small prop stuff for casual sightseeing.

    While this game looks more and more amazing, I think this thing will be a threat to some that have data caps with their ISPs.

    Unfortunately the more I read, the more I believe the "idea" has far surpassed technology. This almost sounds like Roberts Space Industries and his idea for creating a universe. Hell No Mans Sky didn't really pull it off either because they just used fixed assets and assigned algorithms to manipulate them to create the diversity.
     
    I mean, can you imagine having the entire globe in HD resolution? That would be an ungodly amount of data... we just haven't gotten there yet. When the entire globe gets on fiber optics from server to jack/outlet in your home, then it may be possible.

    It's the whole world at high resolution. I think 150GB is kinda small. It's gonna need a couple of TB to cache areas you fly frequently imho.

    Yup.  I think that's just the tip of the iceberg.

    Especially, if your cable internet provider caps you at 2TB or something. You're gonna kill your quota if you fly a lot.

    I was also wondering how much data would be streamed from playing the game a few hours a day over a month. I would fear people are going to hit data caps just from the game regardless of other data that a family might be using.

    I'm going to still pick up the sim and even base a simulator project around it. Either Cessna 152/152 or Cessna 172 G1000. I have fuselages of both sitting around my shop. I love slow and low VFR flying, so this title is going to be next level for that.

    I could totally see people adjust their lives for this game.  Meaning, they'll upgrade their rigs and some will go nuts, increase their internet speeds, storage, etc.  Just ready for it all around.

    I'm sure the game will delete and re download scenery as you fly if you don't have a lot of disk space available.  Also, scenery probably doesn't need ultrafast load times since it can be loaded in advance, so you can probably get away with a 7200 RPM hard drive.  The 8TB 7200 RPM hard drives are in the $150-$200 range now and 4TB 7200 RPM hard drives are in the $65-$100 range now.

    Ryzen R9 3950X, RTX 3090 FTW3 Ultra, Two EVGA RTX 2080 Supers, 64 GB DDR4 3600 MHz, 1 TB PCIE 4.0 NVMe SSD, 1 TB PICE 3.0 NVMe SSD, 2 TB 2.5" SSD, 8TB 7200 RPM HDD, 1300 Watt EVGA PSU, 850 watt Seasonic PSU, O11 Dynamic XL case.

    For something like this, I would rather put it on an SSD at a minimum but I would be curious to see how well it works with mechanicals.

    At 11:30 or so you can see the Target logo on top of a building. There are a lot of companies that have their logo or name painted on top of their buildings that you can see on approach. Miami is a good example landing east.
     
    If they are at this level of detail I will be very impressed.
     
    There were actually bug spots on the windshield. By the way, when a bug hits your windshield, what is the last thing going through their mind?

    150GB is quite small really  X-Plane 11 maxed out with all the airports & packs goes well over 1.4Terabytes, you can makea flight sim as large as you want for that part.
    And being 150GB as a base program is pretty decent tbh.

    As for 32GB ram hmm not too bad, most high end gamers have 32 to 64GB anyways so this should not be much of an issue.
    my specs of my main system can run this easily thanks to great SMP support, I am hoping Vulkan API will be used as this isa far superior API than DX12 could ever want to be, but seeing it's a Microsoft product I am doubting that  my Choice would still be X-Plane  they have most experience when it comes to Flight Sims, especially the realism factor, it's not always about lovely graphics but the sim it's self  does it all.

    Keep in mind that FS2006 aka FSX was their last after this they stepped out, so I really have to see how well they do with FS 2020 and I really hope it won't be some tech demo and such, I hope the old  Flight Sim Quality we last had in FS2004 & FSX will return.

    Specs wise I can easily run it, that was so nice of Flight Sim X you had limitless SMP (Symmetric Multi Processing) support the same with X-Plane, not knowing where FX 2020 will be going though, just gotta wait it off.
    Also X-Plane 11 runs fine under Windows 7 with Limitless SMP Support and since  FX 202 required Win 10 that I rate as a garbage OS, I Won't be needing it.
    Nice jokes MS lays off with the vulnerability issues and such, I used Win 2K for 20+ years now never had an issue with that, not something I am going to fall for, it's how MS Forces people to buy their new software, by shoving it down people's throats with such dumb acts, that won[t work for me hehe.

    I wonder if it will have helicopters. And if it does, I wonder if they will have proper collective control. FSX's helicopter controls and physics were laughable.

    Minimum system requirements

    You will be able to install and run FS2020 when your system meets the minimal requirements set by Microsoft. Please note that Flight Simulator won't look at superb as it looks like in the movies published by Microsoft, as they used an ideal system for this.
    • CPU: AMD Ryzen 3 1200, or Intel i5-4460
    • GPU: Radeon RX 570, or Nvidia GTX 700
    • VRAM: 2 GB
    • RAM: 8 GB
    • HDD: 150 GB
    • Internetspeed: 5 Mbps (0.6 MB/s)

    Recommended system requirements

    Do you want a smooth Flight Simulator 2020 experience? If average graphics are good enough for you you need at least the specifications below for your computer.
    • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1500X, or Intel i5-8400
    • GPU: Radeon RX 590, or Nvidia GTX 970
    • VRAM: 4 GB
    • RAM: 16 GB
    • HDD: 150 GB
    • Internet speed: 20 Mbps (2.5 MB/s)

    Ideal system requirements

    Do you want to get the most out of Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 and would you like to be stunned by all details this new Flightsim has to offer, including its breathtaking sceneries? Then you do need a heavy PC, including fast internet connection.
    • CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 2700X, or Intel i7-9800X
    • GPU: Radeon VII, or Nvidia RTX 2080
    • VRAM: 8 GB

    150GB is nothing.  I have around 110GB for FSX potentially without having reinstalled all of my stuff completely after my system build last year and that's with only general mesh/vector addons, Orbx's global replacement textures, and a 4-5 of their detailed regions.

    The real information I want to hear about is the SimConnect capability and multi-camera views be it via the same computer or multiple networked computers for the same simulator build and how well that scales. One thing FS has always had issues with is scaling, which means if you plan on doing multiple displays in a simulator you're going to need to network them together with several computers. This is the hidden elephant in the room no one is talking about right now and will be the determining factor for taking this seriously as a flight simulator platform. Several thousand people have built up Boeing and Airbus simulators in their garages. If this doesn't work with those sim kits, you're going to see the title snubbed by the ones that are really into this genre.
