Microsoft Flight Simulator X vs Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 Graphics Comparison Video

YouTube’s “Flight Sim” has shared an amazing comparison video between Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020. This video compares the airports that are currently present in these two flight simulator games.

Microsoft Flight Simulator X came out in 2006 and looked quite good when it launched. However, it looks seriously outdated these. On the other hand, Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 looks absolutely stunning. This comparison video truly showcases why we consider Microsoft Flight Simulator one of the best graphical showcases of 2020.

In Microsoft Flight Simulator, players will be able to fly highly detailed and stunning aircraft in an incredibly realistic world. Players will also be able to create their flight plan and fly anywhere on the planet. Furthermore, the game will have day/night environments, as well as challenging weather conditions.

Microsoft Flight Simulator lets you select different ways in which you can interact with the world and other players. Players will be able to play on public servers in a couple of different ways. Players will also be able to create their own group and interact only with their friends, and decide all of the game’s rules.

Now as you may have guessed, these amazing graphics come with some stiff PC system requirements. PC gamers will at least need an AMD Ryzen 3 1200 or an Intel i5 4460 CPU. Moreover, they’ll need at least 8GB of RAM, 150GB of free hard-disk space and a 5Mbps Internet Connection. Microsoft has also listed the AMD Radeon RX 570 and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX770 as the minimum required graphics cards.
