Thread: MSFS 2020 Download

    I have MSFS 2020 installed on a dedicated M.2 Drive, under a folder called 'FS2020' - steam makes this bespoke install path a lot easier.

    Hi Mike, good answer!
    I was concerned that it might have been an older one, but that should be fine

    Regards

    I see you have an i9. How much more do you get out of it compared to an i7? Wonder what it could do for my FSX

    I did the big upgrade last year while I was alpha testing the sim (I was one of the lucky ones)
    Anyway I bought a “bare bones” pc. Basically a new motherboard, cpu & psu, plus some ram and an RTX2080ti.

    The pc I was replacing had an I7-7700k
    It was absolutely fine when running MSFS on just one screen, but with three screens the FPS dropped dramatically. I bought the RTX 2080TI first and it helped.. but I clearly had a bottleneck with the cpu.

    I got the new system.. bought 2 M2 drives for it too.. and it works well, even with three screens.. however, as said previously I now run MSFS in VR. I don’t actually know what the FPS is but I get a reasonably smooth flight with most settings on high/ultra

    The main setting you need to watch is rendering scale. It’s a real FPS killer

    Buy it from the Microsoft store rather than amazon.

    Thank you for the information. I know it took me (and still learning) several years before I got a handle on running FSX.
