Hi! Everyone, I am thinking of upgrading the CPU in my PC system which is a RYZEN 5 1500X and handles MSFS2020 quite well at medium settings. The question is if I upgrade to RYZEN 5 4500 ZEN2 CPU six cores and 12 threads, will it increase the performance without upgrading the graphic card which is a NVIDIA GTX 970.  With Kind Regards.

Yes all flight sims are CPU limited even MSFS which was built on the base FSX code, the first Q&A in Seattle the devs confirmed this they did not start from scratch.

PS if you use 1080p res then you will be even more CPU bottlenecked.
