Which simulators can my laptop handle at a decent FPS?

Hello yall

So I have this laptop and was wondering which flight sims it could handle with minimal lag and decent fps? like 30-40 would be good. Also which sims would you recommend?

Specs:
HP Spectre x360 convertible 13 inch and x64
8GB Ram
Intel Core i7 @ 1.30GHz, 1498mHz (3.9GHz with Turbo Boost)

Idk a whole lot of computer stuff so Im just saying this out of my specs app.
if u need more details lmk and help is appreciated

Compact laptops such as yours don’t really allow you to do much upgrading. Your best bet would be to find an affordable gaming desktop ($800USD) and use that for your simming needs.

I’d say that’s more surviving. 25fps is running.

FSX Would run fine and you’d get a good sim ontop of it. Steam edition is also good.

Ok thank you I’ll look into that.

Will it be too laggy or low FPS?

Def not. Probably would run smooth.

8 gig of ram should be able to handle it

If you press the Ctrl + Shift + Esc keys, task manager will pop up. If you click ‘more details’ then pop over to performance, you’ll get to see the clock speed the CPU is currently at. It’s typically higher than what it is listed as in the about the computer sections.

I’ve been able to run FSX Steam Edition on my old AMD A-300 dual core APU laptop, and that thing is ~10 years old. It worked ok enough for younger me, so this (I assume much newer) laptop of yours should be able to handle it

i think i was being dumb, apparantly my laptop is quad core and can run at 3.9GHz with Turbo Boost. i think 1.3GHz is the base. Is that good and does it help with anything
