System Question

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Before buying, I wanted to make sure that the DC-6 would work on my system, and was wondering if there is anyone using the DC-6 successfully on a relatively low-end system.

 

I'd love to try out the aircraft, but only have my laptop with me up here at college. (Desktop was left home).

My specifications are:

AMD A10-5750M APU (quad core) 2.5 GHz, AMD Radeon HD 8650G graphics, 8GB RAM

 

Has anyone with a comparable system had success using this aircraft? Or does anyone more experienced than I have any thoughts on my specs?

 

I appreciate any input!

 

Steve

How many FPS do you get with the XPlane King Air?

 

Rob.

 

Seriously because that is a very weak system.

I'm aware it's a weak system, but my main flight sim computer is currently part of my 767 cockpit project back home, so there wasn't much chance of bringing it to school with me!

I usually get about 19-22 FPS with the rendering settings I use.

Bit harsh Felipe but for flight simming unfortunately its true.

I see the AMD Radeon HD 8650G graphics has no dedicated graphics memory.

 

The minimum recommended in the DC6 manual is 1GB on the graphics card with 4GB recommended.

 

I was away from home with a reasonable laptop for a few years and I appreciate its frustrating.

Good luck.

Maybe it's harsh but I don't want him wasting his money. Don't bother with the DC-6 if you can barely run the King Air.

Thank you all for the advice! I've decided to wait until I have access to my other system.
