Simputer and Outputer got new hardware!
After my daughter had her maiden flight, I wanted to check something the next day – but the computer wouldn’t start.
It looked like the PSU were broken and I had the same problem on the Outputer – ok the Celeron466 has been in service for decades(!!!) now.
When I looked further into it, it looked as if more components were broken.
Since BMS raised the hardware recommendations I decided to just keep the casing and replace the old Simputer with new components.
Now the new Simputer consists of
- Ryzen 5 2600 CPU
- 32GB DDR4-3000 RAM
- AMD RX570 Grafikkarte
- 512GB SSD
Searching through my computerpile 😉 I found a not too old HTPC which I made the base configuration for the new Outputer (CPU, MB, RAM, casing) and installed the old graphics card stripped out of the old simputer (it’s got 5 outputs to control the displays in the sim).
The new Outputer:
- AMD Athlon X2 4050e
- 4GB RAM
- AMD Radeon HD 7800 Grafikkarte
- 128GB SSD
Performance of Falcon BMS is incredible on the new machine, 1080p runs perfectly smooth in high detail, which is more than enough for me.
