XP12 system requirements

Recommended Posts

@Humpty could you get them to try xp11 opengl and vulkan on that laptop and then let us know, then we will have at least some "proof" that you seek:

The intel gpu vulkan/opengl support matrix is here:

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005524/graphics.html

we already got the goodish news that the trees were done on a nvidia gtx1070 (iirc).

sparks , think you should go back and read your own statements that you made in that thread , but let me point out what you wrote ;

 They are not using Opengl because Intel has not provided Vulkand drivers , at least for GPU's that are 2 years old  , didn't you mention that ?  and i gave you proof that is not the case.

I already had proof but you failed to provide any.

older than "about" two years old.

all those intel gpus in that link that are dx11/ogl4.3/vulkan na will definately run xp11 and not xp12.

they are still selling older model laptops that sit in that range, they are the more popular ones because they are "cheaper".

question you opened is will it run on vulkan 1.0.66, which I think they wont but you can prove one way or another.

That laptop is almost 4 years old a 6th gen i5.

You said they are running XP11 on opengl . and not vulkan.   If i did misread or misunderstood  then please correct me.

I don't need to prove if it will run XP11 or not , will say it again  I did mention that  you shall also  say that the version might not be capable.

That link only states that what you said that intel has no vulkan is completely wrong. It has nothing to do with it able to run XP or not.

end of disscussion.

yes, sailing off croatia atm so on mobile, but for example, this one for sale today

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/thomson-neo-15-6-laptop-intel-core-i5-8gb-memory-1tb-hdd-black/6447805.p?skuId=6447805

which has intel 6100 graphics and is dx12, opengl 4.4 and no vulkan support.

That sort of machine is the vast, vast majority of "windows pcs" when people start talking about how windows dominates the market.

And as you saw with your colleagues machine, even if they do have some support it is not current (and may or may not be enough)

Lol do you even know what you are posting ?

you are giving me an example of a GPU chip of 2014 , where i gave you a complete list of Intel GPU that are within 4-5 years that have vulkan support, and you showing just one chip LOL.

Go take a flight sparks you seem to be stressed out.

I am out of this discussion and will not repost.

But who cares honestly if the vast majority of XP12 pilots are not using "the vast majority Windows PCs" but "the simmers average Windows PC" instead?

Sure you are right, there are tons of PC used for gaming or working which might not be offering enough for XP12, and you might be right (it is not the point anyhow to me) that Vulkan on Linux might be more stable, more performant, and more supported than on Windows, nevertheless, I doubt most simmers looking to run XP12 are also considering regularly using it on older specs notebooks. Maybe occasionally, but not regularly?!

At least for what it's worth the latest Navigraph survey is telling 85% of respondents are using an NVidia GPU (might be not representative a population either but I find this closer to our hobby than Steam stats for example), and I'm certain anyone that can run FS2020 on his PC will be able to run XP12 on the same PC as well. Now that the same simmers could run the same XP12 on the same hardware faster and/or better if only they would replace Windows with Linux I don't know, but this is not the main point of the now closed sub-thread in the now closed topic AFAIK.

that laptop I just linked was released in 2021, its not as easy as age, yes, some intel chips released 3 or 4 years ago - e.g. the top of the range dell xp13 started in 2017 - have some support.

but people with those machines is a tiny fraction of windows pc users, who buy in the $500-$1000 range which often will run xp11 and not xp12, not the $1000 to $4000 range which will run xp12 if they are less than a couple of years old.

My comment that kicked off the panic was that LR dont really care about "windows pcs", nor should they. They should and are focusing on mac and linux, with windows support for those that have it.

because it works. and works well.

But mobile is the biggest XPlane market (which is entirely dominated by mac and linux). Plus devices like the steam deck are the future of gaming/simming

Well, that or the likes of google stadia, but I have nothing nice to say about that alternative.

And for which therefore if I understand your point about Vulkan this is a no issue isn't it?

kinda, I did some vulkan testing on all my mobile devices about 12 months ago. Results were baaaaad.

https://benchmarks.ul.com/news/new-vulkan-benchmark-test-for-android

not tried recently, and hoping my next device gets better results.

But at this moment I think my next console is probably a steam deck assuming I can find one to buy once they release, and they arent plagued by the amd vulkan issues that currently haunt desktop. (xbox plan got canned when it turned out there is no VR support, and Im still not sold on a PS5 -  that looks no good for flight sim anyway, even if it does end up with the best VR offering)

As per Randall above, you showed a 4 year old windows pc you had on hand can run xp11, msfs and p3d but not xp12, therefore proved my case, no?

Vulkan support according to AMD

This is the proof not stop your misinformation @msparks . You obviously have no idea what you are talking about. it's one thing to favor linux or XP11 but it's another to just spew pure gibberish content all the time.

most of the hits I just got looking for windows laptops that arent intel are mostly amd R3s, (although here they dont even sell them them with windows)

e.g.

https://vacom.hr/proizvod/laptop-acer-aspire-3-a314-nx-herex-008-14-amd-8-gb-amd-radeon-r3-256-gb-ssd-freedos-crna/

I dont see R3 in your list?

Now I doubt there any windows PC even now in the $600 range that will run XP12.

steam deck is starting at $400US btw.
