Microsoft Flight Simulator 2015

Radeon RX 570 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 570 8GB Performance Review

Booting up Microsoft Flight Simulator 2015 with the 3 year old Radeon RX 570 8GB looks like it will 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 570 8GB would still get 157 FPS at these performance hungry settings and resolution. When considering the GPUs release price, this comes in at $1.15 per Ultra 4K FPS or $0.68 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 AMD Ryzen R5 1400X’s performance to get a smooth experience.

To summarise, this is an easy one, the Radeon RX 570 8GB solution can play Microsoft Flight Simulator 2015 at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 157 frame rate, whereby we see 200+ frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 200+ frames per second is the type of results. Using the graphics card launch price we calculate the cost per frame to look like this for the different resolutions - 1080p Ultra costs $0.52, 1440p costs $0.68 and 4K costs $1.15.
