since a few days I am concerned with the question if I should upgrade my system and if so, how?
Currently I have an older I7 4970K processor with a Z97 board that is permanently overclocked to 4.5 Ghz. Until now I was very satisfied with it. But through VR I notice that I am at the performance limit especially in combination with my current graphics card (RTX2070).
Since my last PC build, processor technology has changed a lot (from quadcore's to 32 cores). AMD's Ryzen is much discussed by gamers. There is often talk of good value for money.
Are the Ryzen processors now competitive for compute-intensive and graphically complex flight simulations? Or should I stay with Intel?
What is your opinion? In the old days, Intel and Nvidia were the best combination for flightsims. Is that still the case today?
What system would you put together today to be well equipped and happy with Aerofly and VR in the future?
I'm looking forward to your answers.
