If I had been the Microsoft advertising and marketing govt pitching a once-in-a-lifetime giveaway of an unimaginable custom-built Flight Simulator PC (by way of PC Gamer), I’d do two issues:
1) I’d most likely make it appear to be a full jet engine, not half an uncovered jet engine, to keep away from reminding folks how airplanes can hardly ever (however terrifyingly) fail:
2) I’d ensure that it has the perfect elements available on the market, each for wow issue and so my one-of-a-kind Flight Simulator PC can hopefully play the notoriously demanding recreation at max settings sometime.
Weirdly, this PC will include an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 (not a 3080 or 3090!), in addition to a Core i7-11700Okay fairly than Intel’s new flagship Core i9-11900Okay. We not too long ago examined that Core i9 with an RTX 3090, and it nonetheless wasn’t sufficient to hit 60fps in Flight Simulator at max settings, although I think about the Core i7 received’t be far off our outcomes with its very similar specs.
Does this PC nonetheless have nice specs? Completely. Do you have to query them should you’re the fortunate winner of this Microsoft France / Gigabyte Aorus collab? Undoubtedly not. That RTX 3070 is value upward of $1,200 all by its lonesome. I’m simply telling you what I would do.
Oh, and three) I’d completely make that big fan go all the way in which round and spin, so it could function an epic, brag-worthy case fan for the complete PC.
Talking of epic Microsoft giveaway objects, do you keep in mind the Xbox Sequence X fridge? Not solely is Microsoft really now placing an actual Xbox Sequence X mini-fridge into manufacturing, the corporate’s apparently going to be designing them from scratch. That’s in line with Xbox advertising and marketing head Aaron Greenberg, who dropped the tidbit in a Clubhouse room yesterday night the place my colleague Taylor Lyles was listening.
