Does X-Plane 12 require as fast of a graphic board as MS2020?
In other words, will I get a better performance graphics-wise with Xplane or about the same?
It's great that you're looking into the nuances of graphic performance between X-Plane 12 and MS2020. I've been deeply involved with flight simulators for many years and I'd be happy to shed some light on your inquiry.
To directly address your question, if you're using the same system:
X-Plane 12 might offer slightly better performance due to its history of optimization. However, it’s important to remember that the real difference might only be noticeable when pushing both simulators to their graphical limits.
It would be helpful if you could provide the specifications of your graphics card and other system details. That way, I can offer a more tailored suggestion based on your setup.
Lastly, if you're exploring additional resources on this topic, the official websites for both X-Plane and Microsoft Flight Simulator often provide detailed system requirements which can serve as a helpful benchmark.
Hope this helps, and happy flying!
