Minimum Recommended System....Integrated video cards not recommended
that pretty much kills every single laptop on the market... and pretty much 75% of all consumer desktops which use integrated graphics (GPU and CPU combo cores)...

people are not gonna be happy with that.

I dont know about everybody else, but I dont build computers for the purpose of playing one game...

why dont they get with microsoft and develop real flight for the XBox if they need such heavy duty graphics?

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

I didn't get the email, I've been a registered owner for years.....

No problem on the hardware requirements...

Looks like you can buy software only and use your existing Realflight controller, cool.

Did the email say when it is actually going to be available?

Looks like the PC I built in 2006 might have finally met its match. Do I really need RF-X?

I hope they improve on the actual flight characteristics and not just pretty graphics.

It might be worth noting, the RF optimal system is as indicated below.

Even the newest home built systems will not likely meet these specs.

The GTX 1060 is not Nvidia's newest video card but it isn't too far from it. At around $200-300, it is an affordable card but not free... About the price of a few good servos...

Very few people will have 32GB of RAM. While my system has 32GB installed, mine is the older DDR3. Far from optimal.

Like the video card, the Intel I7-6700 processor is far from exotic or leading edge but at around $300, it represents much more than the average computer user is willing to spend.

I suspect most of us will have to either build a new system, or experiment with the program settings to find something that works with a less than "optimal" computer.

yes, those are pretty high specs, and if you have dial down the settings to get it to run decent, it might not be any better that 7.5.

I'm good except for the ram, I "only" have 16gb.

But, I'm going to give it a go.

I see the point on the high specs, but....

if rf is to get and look better , well so to it does performance of the pc to run it,
one simply cannot do VR with an outdated pc.
and that's where the pc world is headed , more realistic , better sound ect.. all require quite a bit of power and proformance ,

I think rf just gave accu rc a run for there money now

I should have said this in my last post but, I like the fact RF has improved their program to take advantage of the better capabilities of more modern computer hardware.

Had RF-X come out and been capable of running completely maxed out on a Walmart laptop, none of us would be looking at it. The fact it will stress my personal desktop only means they've designed a modern flight simulator. It also means it's time for me to start putting my next computer build together...

Speaking of building a new system, I haven't built a desktop for maybe a decade, where is a good place to buy components these days?

Lap tops are not ideal for SIM's (due to graphics card, notice how hot it gets when you watch videos)... it's best to run SIM's on a PC platform. I have a Mac Book Pro 2015 and refrain from running SIM on it, but will do CAD and video editing all day.

A high quality SIM requires a lot resource .. it's like gaming. You need a NICE RIG .. gotta play to play ....just like anything in this hobby.

Invest in a nice PC from fry's around $300 and call it a day. RF kicks ass all day, physics (especially on auto's are life like).

here is the problem as i see it....

why are you going to spend the equivalent of $800 for a new home desktop system to meet the spec requirements to run a SIMULATOR that is prettier than the last simulator you have? if thats your thing, hell thats your money.

for me money is better spent on heli parts, fuel and snacks out at the field.

learn the basics on a sim... practice at the field is king.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...
