So Glad I went with a new i9-9900K.  I had a feeling MSFS was going to be optimized for an Intel processor and they are a beast when it comes to single core power which seem to still be the case since FSX!

Is the 9900k the best CPU available for flight sim right now? I’m slowly buying parts right now and am waiting until the 3000 series gpus come out before buying the big pieces. That’ll give me time to see what people are saying.

I guess the next question would be is it worth the $70 extra? Not much difference relatively speaking but if it’s only worth an extra FPS or two than it’s obviously not worth it.

I’d think you’d be more GPU bound with either processor unless you went with a new nvidia 3090 card which may set you back about 1,400.00 usd!

I was holding out for the new cards.  Not sure which I was going to get but it'll be a good one.

Here's some other good information AMD and Intel

Thanks I'll check those out.  I've read some reports that AMD is performing worse than Intel for MSFS but there could be other reasons why.  I have some time before I buy anything so it'll give me plenty of time for more reports to come out.

Yes, I still think we’re several years away before Sims, and most games in general, take full advantage of hyperthreading.  Until then Intel chips will have the advantage due to the single core raw processing power...
