Microsoft Flight Simulator now learns virtual reality using correction. And visually, like the 2D version, it’s quite impressive, so it’s no wonder that the VR refresh test received the most attention in the past week.
However, hardware starvation is very high, and even the demanding 2D variant appears harmless. Both the processor and the graphics card face huge challenges and it is nearly impossible to run the game smoothly in VR mode. Flight Simulator can’t even run on AMD GPUs. In addition, it is annoying to control the use of the mouse and keyboard in VR mode.
