What kind of graphics card is recommended for aeroflyRC?

Grafic cards in Desktop PCs


For aeroflyRC you`ll need a graphics card by Intels HD series, AMD (ATI) HD series, AMD (ATI) new R-series or Nvidia Geforce series. In the case of Intel graphics cards at least a HD-4000 is required for Windows computers  and a HD-3000 for Apple Mac computers.

Be careful in cases of an onboard graphics chip in desktop PCs. Its very similar to onboard graphics chips in notebooks. There may be newer generations of onboard grafic chips running aerofly, but for a good performance you please use a high performance 3D graphics card.

A recommendation from practice


A recent tip (March 2016) is the new GeForce GTX 750 Ti Slim. The installation is very simple because the card only needs to be inserted into the slot on the motherboard and screwed.  This card requires no additional power connection or other special  power supply.

The fan is quiet and the heat generation is very moderate. Running in a test computer (Windows 10)  the card creates permanently 80 FPS (Frames Per Second) in a 4D scenerie with ULTRA” graphic setup . From 30 FPS the eye notice the simulation as smooth.
