MD-11 on Win7/Skylake (?)

Recommended Posts

Hello pilots -

 

I'm in the midst of speccing out a system upgrade, and I recall that back when the MD-11 and 747v2 were pulled from the market there was some nebulous discussion from PMDG about how the two older aircraft were experiencing some troubles on newer chipsets. It wasn't clear if it was GPU related, CPU related, or motherboard related, so I have the following question:

 

Is anyone operating the MD-11 under Windows 7/FSX on a Skylake i7 6700 processor these days?

 

I get the sense it will work just fine, but I'm seeking some confirmation to help set my mind at ease.

 

(Note - I am aware of the Skylake chipset's unique issue regarding Windows 7 and USB peripherals when it comes to the initial installation.)

 

Cheers, and thanks for your input!

-Greg

MD-11 under Windows 7/FSX

I originally missed this question. I am using Windows 7 64bit and FSX Gold.
