Definition of "supported"


I'm asking myself if this list is of relevance at all? People who already have such systems can just try FlightGear and see if it works. While people that are looking for a new system should follow the guidelines from FlightGear Hardware Recommendations and try to avoid integrated GPUs at all. I think this list only adds confusion, because people will think that buying a "supported" video card will give them a nice FlightGear experience, which is (with the current list) not necessarily the case.

Recent integrated graphic chips from Intel, like the Iris Pro 5200, are fully capable of running FLightGear. I've ran FlightGear for years on various laptops and desktops. The list was changed to more 'professional-grade' graphics hardware, or variants of the mid-range graphics hardware with large video memory. The list focuses on graphics hardware that can handle FLightgear 3.2+ running with all shader effects, Rembrandt, and spatial anti-aliasing turned on. Jinjin (talk) 13:04, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
