Running P3D V4

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm currently running FSX and thinking about switching to P3D V4.

How would my system cope with P3D?

Windows 10 x64
i7-6700K Skylake 4.2 GHz
16GB DDR4 2133MHz
750W PSU
GTX 970 4GB
Asus Z170 PRO Gaming Motherboard
H80i V2 CPU Cooler 
250GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD for OS
2TB Seagate HDD for FSX/P3D

Kind regards

Greg

Simple answer, yes it would. A better question would be, can it run with your sliders maxed out. In which case it's impossible to know without trying it. But you will definitely be able to run it with reasonably high settings.

Check out my specs in sig.  I run P3Dv4.1 at reasonably high settings and love it.

Hi Greg,

I have basically the same hardware except the graphics card, where I use a GTX 1070. Visuals are very nice with High / Very High settings for most of the graphics options even in tough weather with ASP4. However, with high details on shadows and max autogen settings I can bring my system to the knees. So, just try and aim for a good balance.

Cheers
Frank

You should be fine.  What's your screen resolution though, definitely not 4K with that GPU, but 1080p works very well.

I's definitely put p3d on the SSD if you have lots of room on it.
