Hi there,
At the moment, I am currently on X Plane 11, and I am considering going over to P3D V5. However, I am not sure how much faster P3D V5 is than P3D V4?
Also, how would my PC Run P3D V5 (Specs below)
CPU : Intel i5-9600k (Non-OC, 6 Cores @ 4.6GhZ)
RAM : 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4-3000MhZ RAM
GPU : ZOTAC GTX 970 (4GB VRAM)
PSU : Corsair CX550 550 Watt
SSD : Samsung 860 EVO SSD 1TB

Greatly appreciated, I have never had P3D before but really interested in the change to P3D. Thanks very much!

For me V5 has no advantage above V4.5HF3 (frame rate related). X-plane/Vulcan (11.5b9) is superior with the frame rates.

My system: i5 9600K OC 5Ghz / GTX1080 / 32Gig ram.

Very difficult to say how much fps you will get. It depends on the add-ons which you will run. But it must be possible to get good frame rates with your system.
