High End System For X-Plane Recommendations

Recommended Posts

I am considering building a high end system for X-Plane 11.  Any recommendations out there?

What have you got at the moment?

For non-VR a GTX 1070 should be fine (has 8GB VRam on it). For VR, I would probably recommend a GTX1080Ti or some of the RTX cards that are coming out. However, there seems to be issues with the 2080's 

16GB RAM seems to be optimal.

9600k is the preferred CPU right now. 

This might help https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/forums/topic/46908-a-guide-to-building-the-optimal-machine-for-x-plane/

X plane is a lot like p3d.  You want a CPU with a high clock speed...faster clock over more cores is preferred.  Although XP does seem to work a little better with multiple threads.  A strong video card is important.  Video ram is important 8GB minimum I'd say.  Finally where in p3d 8GB ram is the minimum I'd say get at least 16 if you're planning on using the HD mesh or 32GB if using UHD mesh for the PNW/Western US regions.

What resolution monitor will you be using?

I think more cores is the future! "and the obvious thing to do to make the system faster is to be more multi-core (since the machine has 16 cores). And that means: focus on Vulkan."

On my Ryzen system with a 1080 and a 4K monitor, my fps is between 30-50 on high settings!

will get my hands on a 9980xe which is able to run 5.1 ghz all core.

but cheap is something different cpu only 2300 EUR 

 

but then i have the best of both worlds high core count, lot of cache and high clocks.

but i'm not sure if i should by a radeon 7 when they are aviable everywhere.  because of the 16 gb hbm.

What do you guys think of the i7 8700 Six Core LGA 1151 3.2 GHz with a 1080ti card for X plane i am running VR with a 1070 and a i7 6700 4 GHZ
