These comparison tables will be gradually populated in 2020 as I migrate the Museum exhibits and artifacts to the new schema.

That of course is if you have AvH installed - if you don't, and you have a PC 300 Mhz or faster and a 3D graphics card, then run out and get it!||Read more||F/A-18E Super Hornet||1999||My Celeron-466 was pretty close to DI's recommended minimum, the only difference being a Creative 3D Blaster Banshee and the sim was very playable on it.|
In 1999 I was able to run the sim with this level of detail on a Celeron-466 233Mhz with no apparent slowdown! I had to turn some of the detail and distance sliders down, but put micro-texture on FULL to get the great sensation of speed at low level. The resolution was set to 800 x 600 as 1024 x 768 made the HUD too hard to read on a 15" monitor. Jerkiness was visible, but tolerable while on the carrier deck, but in the air things smoothed out. We also tried the sim on a P350 with the same graphics card and 256 meg of RAM. Running at 1024 x 768 with ALL the graphics options maxed out the sim was as smooth as silk.

A: Tune things down, run vsync from within the sim, cap the fps to 60 (=my monitor's refreshrate) from within the sim. It works on my end. Robin Takolander
