Would This Computer Run P3D v3 to a good standard?
« on: November 16, 2016, 06:13:19 PM »
Vague question I know but i've spotted a deal on a computer with these specs.

Intel i7 @3.4GHz can overclock to 4GHz
Nvidia 1070
16GB Ram
256SSD 3TB Hard Drive

Yes Yes I know it's a very vague question but with loads of addons and Ai would it be able to run P3D without grinding to a standstill at the main hubs?

I would say: yes. The biggest problem in P3D is (still) the OOM error, but that has nothing to do with your pc..

Can you expand on that? I thought p3d had moved on from the famous fsx oom  :reaction:

of course it has. Memory managment has been improved but its still a 32bit application, so you have still the same 4GB virtual memory limit. But nevertheless P3D is a good step forward compared to FSX.
