Can my laptop run P3D

Recommended Posts

  • 7th Generation Intel Core i5-7300HQ Quad Core
  • 8GB 2400MHz DDR4 
  • 1TB 5400 rpm Hard Drive
  • 15.6-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) Anti-Glare LED-Backlit Display
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050

These are my laptop specs  and I am wondering if this system will work with P3D?

 I had a desktop that ran it very well but it went TU.  My wife bought me this laptop in its place and I want it to run P3D.  Thank you for any advice that anyone can give me.

At the very least you should replace the HDD with an SDD. Those 5400rpm laptop drives are sloooow.

 

Other than that, you're fairly close to the specs of the box I was running before my last upgrade. It'll run, but you'll have to turn the sliders way down, and you'll still have framerate stumbles if you fly in dense scenery areas like LA or NYC.

If it were me, I would buy an internal ssd 1tb Samsung 870. Replace the 5400rpm hdd, they are slow as hell! 

You’d have to re-install windows, but it would be worth the effort. Usually laptops come pre installed with a load of bloatware, so you can also get rid of that by doing a proper re-install. 

My 2pence.
