Installed on a laptop, with dual extended screen output to 43" inch 4k screen
The Thinkpad T510 is a fairly powerful workstation laptop, with FHD 1920X1080p dual screen outputs, to a Vizio 43" inch 4K screen, @60Hz. The Vizio upscales FHD to 4K. The laptop chokes under full graphics settings, or rather, it stutters too much to play, but still, surprised it does as well as it does.
Running on a dual core i7 cpu of 2.67Ghz, Windows 7, 4 Gigs ram, 128 Gb SSD hardrive(a must).
Set the NVidia graphics card to performance, rather than quality. Turned off the shaders, turned off scaling, pulled back objects by 1, running BMS 4.32 at about 24Fps, now playable.
Still need to fix the pot for the throttle, but other than that, great to be back in the jet again.
The laptop screen is wide enough(13 inches) to attatch two Thrustmaster MFDs.
I will attempt to add more ram(8Gb) to see if that helps performance.
A newer Thinkpad T530 would easily handle Falcon BMS at full graphics settings, but be prepared to hand out $1500+ for it. An easy cockpit setup with MFD set up. And the 4k screen is an absolute must.
Maybe next year, some dual curved 65" inch 4k screens.
As for the flyboys and flygirls out there in the real jets, no doubt they consider themselves fortunate….loving every minute of every day flying, proving once and for all, that man really can fly…and save lives.
