How important is descent simulation on the trainer for a good Swift experience?

Hi,

 

Do you need a trainer that simulate descent (as Tacx Genius) for a good swift experience or is a smart trainer (as Tacx vortex) good enough?

I think a “dumb trainer” and a powermeter gives a pretty good experience…and I have a powertap and a computrainer and have used both.

 

Riding in a group and pulling schenannigans is a little better on the computrainer…but for getting in a good workout the dumb trainer and powermeter is a little better for hitting every interval.
