MS Flight Sim will trigger an avalanche of hardware upgrades
After a long wait, the new Microsoft Flight Simulator was finally released last week. With the use of Bing Maps, and an extensive physics system in the game is generally well-received, however, it is also quite demanding on the hardware of your pc. Research Agency Jon Peddie Research believes that Flight Simulator will be a reason for many people to upgrade their hardware.

The hardware to run the game on full ultra settings ideal does not yet exist, says JPR. The company expects Flight Simulator to sell about 2.27 million copies in the next three years. As a result, it states that fans of flight simulators will spend approximately $ 2.6 billion on hardware upgrades, specifically because of FS202020.

JPR relies on the theory that PC gamers can be divided into three scales: entry-level, mid-range and high-end. The higher the category, the greater the percentage of simulation dance, which above average spend a lot of money on hardware.

The research agency claims that many fans of flight simulators play mainly (or only) these genre games, and claims to have included this in their calculations. This is one of the reasons why they come up with the figure of 2.6 billion dollars as a direct result of Flight Simulator.

JPR predicts that Intel and AMD (who else?) will benefit from Flight Simulator in the CPU market, as well as Nvidia and AMD in the graphics market. However, pre-built PCs and things like VR hardware, as well as more specialised equipment such as air sticks, will also have positive effects, according to the bureau.
