Yay they were telling me to watch that site :)

What's just going to ROCK about this version is 64 bit.
On Vista it will make a mid 2ghz class Athlon 64 feel like 5ghz.
Ok, that's a bit of an assumption, but I have tasted 64 bit gaming with Far Cry and Unreal Tournament 2004, on XP 64 bit.
In Unreal I was getting 180fps in places the exact same rig only pulls 65 while running 32 bit XP - and THAT'S despite the infancy level of the 64 bit OS, 64 bit video drivers, and chipset drivers!
With a much more evolved 64 bit OS, and maturation of the various other drivers, oh boy FSX is probably going to be a SERIOUS quantum leap.
Some are already saying "they're just updating the graphics" - well even if that were true, can you say "updated graphics WITH 3x better performance?" lol...

A 64-bit OS doesn't really help unless you have a 64-bit application.

*sigh* I wonder when we'll get to see the 737... :)

*sigh* I wonder when we'll get to see the Airbus!!! :-)

So FSX is 32 bit?

I don't know, but one of the nice folks above may ;)

>So FSX is 32 bit?
Isn't that what Mike just said? You can't get "more official" than that!

The screenshots look great, but I want the see the A320, 737, and the cockpits of all the aircraft!

>A 64-bit OS doesn't really help unless you have a 64-bit
There's been some "official word" that FSX would only give the "full experience" via Vista - so I did indeed make a big assumption that FSX would be a 64 bit program, runnable on 32 bit of course, but somewhat neutered...
It could very well be something else about Vista, or it could be pure BS too...
All I know is IF YOU HAVE a 64 bit application then it sure rocks to have 64 bit...

So, FSX isn't going to be 64-bit? Any particular reason why not? I hope it's at least going to be optimized to take advantage of multiple thread technology. At least that way, HT or dual-core processors would be finally be able to make a difference.

tdragger (mike) is product manager for FS. He knows!!!!

would a 64 bit program work on 32 bit machines?

No, no--PROGRAM manager. ;)
02-27-2006, 09:26 PM
And please everyone take note that most machines right now are 32 bit, and still will be when FSX is released.;)
Hope this helps,

IS that what he said? I think he was saying "no, I'm a program manager" not "no, its not 64-bit"
Clarification? I'll be buying a 64-bit system solely for FSX.

I just noticed something. I'm assuming those FS2004 shots posted on that site are the original microsoft promo shots of FS2004. Now I have to say, FS2004 doesn't look anything like that on my PC. It looks a bit worse. So I have to say, I doubt FSX will look anything like the shots unless someone has a PC specifically built and tuned to run Vista/FSX.

Consider this, then... All the FSX screen shots seen thus far were taken from a not-so-new computer running WinXP/SP2, using a not-so-new video card... :)
Only the brief video of FSX was run under Vista, and even then was limited to DX9 features...

Is a NTFS file system a 32bit system? I have that structure with my Dell 8200.
