Microsoft reveals hardware specs for Microsoft Flight

Microsoft has kept development of its next PC game, Microsoft Flight, on the quiet side for the most part ever since the successor to the long running Microsoft Flight Simulator series was first announced back in the summer of 2010. However a new update on the game's official web site gives some information on what kind of hardware requirements PC gamers can expect to need in order to run Microsoft Flight.

In terms of the minimal system requirements in order to run the game at its low graphics setting, Microsoft recommends these specs:

CPU: Dual Core 2.0 GHz
GPU: 256 MB card capable of shader 3.0 (DX 9.0c compliant)
HD: 10 GB Hard Drive space
RAM: 2.0GB

You can see how the game looks at the low graphics settings in the screenshot above

In order to run Microsoft Flight at its highest graphical setting, the following hardware specs are recommended:

CPU: Intel Core i7 960 @ 3.20GHz, AMD® Phenom II X6 1100T 3.3 GHz or better
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 5870, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 or better
HD: 10 GB Hard Drive space
OS: Windows 7 64-bit

The high graphics setting is represented by the above screenshot.

While Microsoft has yet to reveal a release date for Microsoft Flight it promises that a big announcement will be coming sometime in December.
