Flight Simulator X vs Flight Simulator 2020 Comparison Video Released

Every damn day I look at the news and I see yet another bunch of Flight Simulator 2020 screenshots and drool over them. Every now and then, I even write about those images here on eTeknix, but honestly, it’s so common now I try to dial it back. Today I’ll make an exception though, as YouTube channel “Flight Sim” has made a rather incredible comparison video.

Flight Simulator X vs Flight Simulator 2020

Keep in mind that Flight Simulator X came out in 2006, back then we have the Nvidia GeForce 7950 GX2, the ATI Radeon X1900, the GeForce 7900 GTX SLI. Yup, it was THAT long ago. The game was breath-taking to look at and play back then, but the comparison video below shows you how far we’ve come.

Just for fun, here are the Flight Simulator X recommended System Requirements:

  • CPU: Pentium 4/Athlon XP or better
  • CPU SPEED: 2.4 GHz
