Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1060 Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 4 year old GeForce GTX 1060 while playing Microsoft Flight Simulator we quickly see it can deliver a struggling 29 FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

In lieu of those results we would not recommend the GeForce GTX 1060 to run Microsoft Flight Simulator on 1440p. However, you could try turning the graphics setting down to Medium, to get a more stable 40 FPS.

In summary, the GeForce GTX 1060 is only really suitable for running Microsoft Flight Simulator on a small laptop screen but may get some playable frame rates up to high graphics.
