Microsoft Flight Simulator Specs & File Size Revealed, And It's Huge
Games are getting bigger and bigger, and Microsoft's new flight sim game is no exception.
Microsoft has announced the system requirements for its new Microsoft Flight Simulator game, and you better have some space on your hard drive. The official system requirements mention that the game takes up 150 GB of space, which makes sense given the ambitious nature of the game.
As announced previously, it features 37,000 real-world airports, gorgeous visuals, and real-time air traffic that shows you the real-world flight paths of planes across the world.
The "ideal" spec for Microsoft Flight Simulator calls for a Ryzen 7 Pro 2700X CPU and a Radeon VIII GPU for AMD or an Intel i7 9800X CPU and Nvidia RTX 2080 graphics card for Nvidia, along with 32 GB of RAM. The game's minimum spec is more manageable, calling for a Ryzen 3 1200 CPU and Radeon RX 570 GPU for AMD and an Intel i5 4460 CPU and Nvidia GTX 770 graphics card for Nvidia. The full Microsoft Flight Simulator PC requirements are available below.
