As other have said this is very far from the truth.
Also as said due to forum rules other games / sims cannot be named.
There is 1 civil aviation sim that struggles badly even on the finest of fine hardware.

DCS runs nicely on my i5-6600K, 16GB GTX1070 @1440p at medium-high settings whilst maintaining a 40 FPS minimum, averaging 60+ and some times passing 100FPS.
Exception would be the Las Vegas strip where dips to 30 FPS happen.

Trimming settings a little allows reaching the frames required for VR reasonably well.

With a 1080Ti i could bring that minimum FPS up a bit and maybe add a little eye candy, but that card wasn't available when i got the 1070.
i5 6600K @4.4GHz -- 16Gig RAM -- 512GB & 940GB SSD -- GTX1070 -- TM Warthog, MFG Crosswinds & TiR

All I can advise is when you are able upgrade! 2.5 is the best thing that has happened to DCS! The new maps are awesome! I am sad I even built my system mainly for DCS! I use track IR and the VIVE for VR and both experiences are excellent! I fly Cessna 172 in real life and have to say 2.5 is as real as flying gets!

I have a AMD Ryzen 2700 with 16gb of Ram and a 1070 Ti and it runs flawlessly on almost max settings on 2.5.+ so i wouldnt say this game is completely over demanding in specs. Most games now a days require 16gb of ram anyway and a 1070 or better.
