Thanks for your continued responses, CptLucky8.
You are right, I am not a developer and the more I try to understand this,
it seems the worse I get in understanding.
CPU-Z Benchmark (x64 - 2017.1) Best CPU performance - 64-bit - January 2021
Best CPU performance - 64-bit - January 2021
CPU--------------- Single Tread-- Multi Threads
i7-9700K/8C8T------ 547----------- 4191
i9-9900K/8C8T------ 545 ---------- 3779
I couldn’t believe that a 9700K beat a 9900K and I bought a new Z390 MB and 9900K to loose processing power.
Then I figured out the need to select 16 vs 8 threads on the chart.
i9-9900K 8C16T -----NL----------- 5512 where NL = not listed
Although the 9900K does Hyper-threading and 9700K not, I guess this does not make any difference in CPU performance. Assuming Multi Threads on the chart does not mean Hyper-threading.
But when the 9900K came out, Intel said it was the fastest gaming CPU and was not challenged.
So why look at all of this? I can’t see why.
As you all have stated, FS2020 only processes with one main core/thread.
Save a lot of money.
Stay with your 9700K and MB.
Fly FS2020 and be content from a pure FS2020 context.
Note that I did buy the 9900K also for Hyperthreading and other Applications.
Fastest Gaming CPU does mean Fastest Gaming but has nothing to do with
But 1 final point and 1 final question: I promise.
Why in the world would ASOBO spend the Millions of $, Talent/Manpower
and Investment to develop a new Flight Simulator on a program that only uses the capability of a CPUs 1C/1T to provide a rather very complex program?
Granted, the GPU provides the Video processing.
My initial statement that has never been answered.
I did see from 9700K 4.7Ghz to 9900K 4.8GHZ
An increase in performance (FS2020 DEV showed the CPU stopped displaying CPU throttling).
The NVidia GTX 1660TI displayed new improved colors and graphic details that no one will accept I really see on a TCL 4K HDR 65 inch QLED TV in FS2020 4k Ultra with smooth CJ4 handling (IFR/ILS) and smooth graphics at 11 to 17 FPS.
CptLucky8, I would really love to understand this but I guess it would be better to let it go.
Thanks again for your responses. Bless you for your patience and desire to help me understand.
I still love FS2020 and love flying it. Thank you, ASOBO…
