It's no longer a secret that the Microsoft Flight Simulator (buy now for € 24.99) 2020 will have impressive graphics to offer. The hardware requirements would have to be accordingly high, right? As the information from Asobo Studio shows, this is not really the case, at least for the minimum level. You only need eight gigabytes of RAM, a graphics card with two gigabytes of video memory and a processor of the Ryzen 3 1200 or Intel i5-4460 class.
