    Another Look At Xbox Performance

    Xbox Series X CPU Performance May Be on Par With Ryzen 5 1600/1600 AF, Analysis Suggests.

    Read Article Here

    Going by this article, it seems that the new Xbox will feature the same CPU performance level as a Ryzen 1600/1600AF, which is a six core, twelve thread CPU by AMD (the AF version being a slightly slower 2600).

    Historically, X-Plane, P3D and FSX have all been pretty much CPU based, and rely heavily on high single core GHz use. This change of direction is welcomed news...and is probably down (to a large extent), to AMD's adoption of high core count (think Ryzen)!

    Flight simmers with fast quad core machine, might find their CPU is not quite up to par for running the new sim.

    A lot of speculation for now...what do you think? Tell us in the comments.

      The official Microsoft announcement is here: https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2020/02/...ration-gaming/
      I think we can take these as being recommended specifications rather than minimum specifications.

      The blog post by John Prendergast mentioned in the article is well worth reading.

    Can we have a dedicated VR forum for FS 2020?

    We really do need our own forum to discuss VR in...no point mixing with the non-VR simmers as it is an entirely different experience. The problem is...
