Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 laptop and desktop benchmarks

Beautiful and demanding. When Flight Simulator went on sale, it had to struggle with various technical problems. About a month after the official launch, we also took to the skies and checked out this hardware-hungry title.

Technical

Eternal waiting times here, bad performance there: The release of the current Flight Simulator was accompanied by several negative headlines. With 2.5 out of 5 stars (as of 09/23/20), the user rating in the Microsoft Store, where the title is distributed, is not particularly great even weeks later.

We can at least partly understand the lukewarm feedback: Starting with the download, which as is typical for the Microsoft store, tends not to run at the maximum possible speed (about 120 GB has to be downloaded in-game), over to the - independent of the hardware - very long game start, and up to the temporary choppiness, which is also often not caused by the settings or the Internet connection. To avoid unnecessary loading times, you should generally install the game on an SSD.

In return, Flight Simulator delivers magnificent visuals that are convincing even in medium settings. In addition to the fancy clouds, the credible lighting, the successful weather, and the realistic aircrafts, the terrain's enormous level of detail is a particularly positive aspect. Especially residential areas with houses and skyscrapers are very impressive. All in all, the title achieves a very high degree of photorealism. Together with Death Stranding, we would describe Flight Simulator as the most beautiful PC game at the moment (even ahead of titles based on the CryEngine and Frostbite engine).

There are also plus points for the extensive graphics menu. A long list of more than 30 options is waiting there, which allow an adjustment in every detail. For practical purposes, there are also several presets (Global Rendering Quality) to control the overall quality in one go. Top: Changes to the settings don't require a restart.

Benchmarks

As you can see in the video below, we use one of the so-called Landing Challenges for our speed measurements, more precisely, in Sydney, Australia. After the intro video is done and the game has finished stuttering, the frame rate is recorded for about 60 seconds. The sequence is technically quite demanding, although there are scenes that are even more complex (like New York, for example).

Since lightning-fast reactions are not that important in Flight Simulator, 30 FPS and upwards is enough for a decent gameplay. Accordingly, the following hardware recommendations apply. While the CPU can be the limiting factor at moderate settings and resolutions, the GPU becomes the bottleneck at higher resolutions and graphics levels. In general, the graphics card should be equipped with a minimum of 4 GB of VRAM. Below that, it will be hard to get a smooth gaming experience.

Due to the good experiences so far, we will switch from Fraps (DX11) and OCAT (DX12) to the CapFrameX tool for game benchmarks in the future, which seems to work smoothly and contains a lot of practical features (e.g. a visualization function).

Results

FHD (1920x1080)

If you want to play Flight Simulator on a Full HD monitor, you won't be able to avoid using an (upper) mid-range graphics accelerator. The Medium preset demands a GeForce GTX 1650 or a Radeon RX 5500M. For high or maximum details, we directly recommend a genuine gaming model at the level of the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti or the RTX 2060.

UHD (3840x2160)

A mix of 3840x2160 pixels and the Ultra preset currently overwhelms any laptop GPU. When it comes to desktops, at least a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is required.

Since gaming tests are very time intensive and often hindered by installation or activation limits, we can only provide a portion of the benchmarks at the time of publishing. Further graphics cards will be added in the coming days and weeks.

5Stutters – This game is very likely to stutter and have poor frame rates. Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, average frame rates are expected to fall below 25fps
May Stutter – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, stutters and poor frame rates are expected.
30Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 25fps
40Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 35fps
60Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 58fps
May Run Fluently – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, fluent frame rates are expected.
?Uncertain – This graphics card experienced unexpected performance issues during testing for this game. A slower card may be able to achieve better and more consistent frame rates than this particular GPU running the same benchmark scene.
Uncertain – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game and no reliable interpolation can be made based on the performances of surrounding cards of the same class or family.
The value in the fields displays the average frame rate of all values in the database. Move your cursor over the value to see individual results.

Growing up with MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 in the early 90s, I discovered my interest in computers in my childhood. Especially computer games radiated a great fascination for me even then. From Monkey Island to Lands of Lore to Doom, everything was gambled that you could get your hands on. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2009 with focus on high-performance gaming notebooks.
