Microsoft Flight Simulator 2015

Radeon RX 580 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 580 8GB Performance Review

The experience of playing Microsoft Flight Simulator 2015 through a Radeon RX 580 8GB is going to return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. Note that those results would be running at High and 1920x1080 screen res.

And so following those results you could of course play this at 1080p, but this GPU is somewhat wasted at that resolution. We would suggest running Microsoft Flight Simulator 2015 at 4K Ultra instead, where the Radeon RX 580 8GB would still get 174 FPS at these performance hungry settings and resolution. When considering the GPUs release price, this comes in at $0 per Ultra 4K FPS or $0 at 1440p Ultra.

This is a powerful graphics card for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2015 and we can certainly recommend it to deliver 4K screen res at ultra settings. Get a system with at least 4GB of RAM though. The PC’s processor would also want to be around the Intel Core i5-7500 3.4GHz’s performance to get a smooth experience.

In summary, if you are looking to play Microsoft Flight Simulator 2015 in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The Radeon RX 580 8GB can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 200+ frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 200+ FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 174 FPS in Ultra as well.
