Intel or AMD Gaming Laptop for Prepar3D

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys! It’s my first post in the forum and i’m struggling with having a new laptop which are MSI GF65 and Asus ROG Zephyrus G14, i couldn’t find any posting relating to this topic, hope to get some help here...

Specification:
MSI GF 65
Processor: I7-9750H @2.6GHz (Max boost to 4.5GHz) 6 Cores
Graphic Card: GeForce RTX 2060 (6GB)
SSD: 512 GB
RAM: 16GB

ROG Zephyrus G14
Processor: Ryzen 7-4900HS @3.0GHz (Max boost to 4.3GHz) 8 Cores
Graphic Card: GeForce RTX 2060 MAX-Q (6GB) 
SSD: 1TB
RAM: 16GB

I noticed that more simmer prefer Intel processor compared to AMD because Intel’s single core performance & clock rate is way more better than AMD. But when it comes to Gaming Laptop, I’ve no idea that whether cores really matter to P3D in FPS performance. These two are my options, there’d much price difference between them, but 1 with I7 based clock rate 2.6GHz, another with AMD based clock rate 3.0GHz which is more nearer to the requirement of V4 ( @3.5GHz).

Which laptop should I go for? My target FPS is 20FPS or just able to smoothly launch ORBX, Active Sky and PMDG...

Thank you,
Alester Tok

The 4900 is a beast of a mobile processor, with that said though it might be worth looking at the stuff that should be available any day now with the Nvidia 3000 series gpu’s.

Looks like the Ryzen is a better deal... but is it a Ryzen 7 or Ryzen 9?

My rig: ASUS TUF FX504GD (Intel i5 8300H @ 2.3-4.0 GHz, 8 GB DDR4-2666 RAM, Nvidia GTX 1050 2 GB, 256 GB M.2 SSD+256 GB 1 TB SATA III SSD as storage, Windows 10 Home)

Saitek X-52 as primary controller. Xbox 360 wired and eDimensional G-Pad Pro wired controllers as standby/travel.

Finally moved to P3D4.5. Also running FSX-SE, FS9 and XP11 Vulkan. Tried MSFS2020, but my rig isn't up to the task. What do I do with 4 sims now?

Ya, more prefer Nvidia 3000 Series, unfortunately I have to make decision to buy before I went oversea at March. So these 2 are my only options... haha

argh sorry, it’s Ryzen 9-4900HS... Just that I’m worried about the performance in P3D, since it is more like to stress single core only.. and i heard Intel can handle single core software more better.... Have you tried AMD laptop to fly?

Would definitely go Ryzen at the min over Intel, whether it’s laptop or desktop

Generally speaking P3D is single thread limited rather than multi core or graphics limited (that's not to say those other two are unimportant just that your FPS/smoothness is usually more related to the single thread performance).

https://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare/Intel-i7-9750H-vs-AMD-Ryzen-9-4900HS/3425vs3694

Suggests the Ryzen wins out on both single and multi threaded performance.

None, for the same money I would really go for the desktop instead. Performance is much better given the money paid. But if you have to go for a laptop it seems the new G15 looks good.
