This is a very long shot, but, does anyone know if FSX was written to support hype-threading?
It makes a difference between choosing a i7 core or i5 core.....
Thank you very interseting thread. I've plumped for an AMD 1050T 6 core 2.3 GHz anyway as my core CPU. FSX should "fly" on it any way!
That will be the best, I know what performance I get with my i7 975, you'll be able to max it out if you have a good video card.
