Hello all,

I noticed a huge flurry of input into the Intel/Ryzen conversation prior to the release of the Ryzen chip.  There was significant hope for the success of Ryzen but, after release there appears to have been very little to be said.

I believe XPlane has the most to benefit from with the 8 cores of Ryzen but has this been confirmed (in particular with reference to XPlane) for any of the Flight sims.  Has/is there any published data of  comparisons, benefits or other.

I am still looking at upgrading in the near future but still wondering which is the right chip for Xplane.

 

Can anyone help please

 

Regards to all

I too am anxious to see some notes on how this new cpu will work with flight sim software. I believe we'll have to do some waiting. 

The chip is new. The motherboards and their chipsets and BIOS are new. Revisions of these will take some time.

I have read where software would need to be recompiled to fully take advantage to this new architecture. This seems unlikely except perhaps for new versions of P3D and X Plane.

Also, I have read that Window 10 does not fully recognise or correctly recognise this chip, in terms of scheduling and therefore not fully employing the potential performance increases. This, if true, should be addressed in upcoming updates to Windows.

But, what do i know? There's been an avalanche of information since release and who knows which is correct etc?

Time will tell. I suspect it will be some months before the dust settles enough to get some good benchmarks. 

Fingers are crossed.

Moved to hardware forum, hopefully there will be others there who can answer.

Last I checked no one here has built a Ryzen system and offered any benchmarks yet.  Have to wait for that to happen or be the guinea pig and do it yourself, I'm afraid.
