Flight Simulator 2020: Optimised Settings For Next-Gen Visuals + Best Performance!

Published on

With Flight Simulator 2020, Microsoft has delivered the first properly next generation experience - but it's demanding in a way we've not seen for many years. So how do you tune for best performance while retaining the lion's share of the next generation visual experience? Alex Battaglia has you covered - but we warned, a hardware upgrade may be required. In fact, even Alex needed one to get closer to a locked 60fps, so thanks to Origin PC for providing the Flight Simulator-themed Core i9 10900K/RTX 2080 Ti setup used in this video.
