Triple NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 980 graphics with 12GB

Recommended Posts

I was looking at major Computer company's new "Gaming PC" configuration.

 

GPU:Triple NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 980 graphics with 12GB total GDDR5 (3x 4GB) GDDR5 -NVIDIA SLI® Enabled

1500 Watt Multi-GPU Approved Power Supply

 

CPU:Intel® Core™ i7-5960X (8-cores, 20MB Cache, Overclocked up to 4.0 GHz w/ Turbo Boost)

 

Memory:32GB Quad Channel DDR4 at 2133MHz

 

Hard Drive:512GB SSD 6Gb/s Main + 4TB 6kRPM SATA 6Gb/s Storage

 

 

I wonder how will it effext FSX or P3D :unsure:

 

BTW other GPU choose option was:Dual NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX™ Titan Z graphics with 24GB total (2x 12GB) GDDR5 - NVIDIA SLI® Enabled

I can't say how P3D would deal with three graphics cards, however FSX just won't take advantage of them.  So if you're only using the rig for FSX, then it's an extra cost that won't plan out. 

 

Of course that looks like a great rocessor.  A year ago I built a new rig with a i7-4770K and after tuning it up I have to say that it runs FSX better than any other rig (I've used five different ones) I've built.   Since FSX is running so incredibly, I'm more than content!

 

By the way, I stream every flight and run quite a number of other programs on the same computer as FSX when I'm flying, and that i7-4770K is a TIGER!

I would think that once you enabled Nvidia surround video you will have a nice 3 monitor system. My system is several years old but it runs FSX just fine. If you take a look at my system specs, I have two GTX 460 running in SLI and surround enabled.

 

Good luck...

 

BTW I built my own system...this sounds like a pre-build...just make sure it's got good cooling! I have six fans running and my whole room gets hot, because it's keeping the motherboard and video cards cool.

I don't think any program makes use of sli until a profile is written for that particular program, and as a 32bit program, a lot of that impressive amount of memory will go to waste.

 

The processor might definitely help, though.

Fatback, I think around $5000 without -optionTitan Z graphics

 

Realewl, No it is not pre-build. Maybe AVSIM consider  "Product advertisement" I think it is not proper to give Manufacturer name.

 

Devon, I think, LM is working on use of sli program

My i7 4770k at 4.8ghz and GTX780 with 8gb of 2400mhz CL9 would smoke that piece of junk with FSX or V2.4. :LMAO:

Dave, I consider you are the lucky one. I have i7 3960 at 3.9 ghz and GTX690 16GB mem. In FSX with PMDG 777 is experincing low FPS and close to destinations possible OOM.

For FSX and/or Prepar3d is GTX 980 enough. Why you all have to much money to spend even on a titan Z??

 

In my opinion at first I would build a system with 1 GTX 980 for Prepar3d.

When Prepar3d supports SLI with 2 or 3 Video Cards, then you can buy 1-2 new GTX 980.

You know, I think you should be able to get a lot better performance out of your system.  From what you're saying, my i7-960 was performing better - while streaming HD too) than what you're currently experiencing.

 

I'm sure there are some things we can help you to worked out, if you're willing.  First though, I'd ask that you run through the AVSIM Software Setup Guide.

 

If you're willing, I'd be happy to help you offline (Via PM, or better yet on my Group's Voice Server so we can talk in real time.  PM me and let me know.

Bah... all that power and you'll get like.. 5 FPS more MAYBE if you are lucky.   They don't care how much power your video has, not even P3D to a certain point.   We ned 10ghz processors to have all our cake and eat it too!

Yep...you were looking at Dell's Alienware Area 51's top factory configuration.  It's ok...you can type it, lol.

Honestly. A waste. I built my rig, and in gaming and anything but video editing/rendering, it would take it for a ride cost/performance wise. 

 

All that power and a 6k rpm HD? 

 

I don't mean to be ______. Fill in the blank. But for the money, you can do better.

I think that PC is more suited to playing the latest FarCry on a 4k triple screen setup.

 

Also, if you are running into 32 bit Ram limitations with your current setup(which honestly sounds really good for FSX), then you will run into them again $5000 later, after buying a new machine.

 

Take a good look at your FSX setup(since you mentioned you fly the PMDG 777, switching to P3D is out).  Look hard for things you can edit out of the scenery cfg, etc... maybe try that demo of that thread optimizing program.
 

Good luck

I totally agree with you....I mean c'mon, THREE 980's in SLI?   Good for modern happenings, but not present flight sim coding.....

 

Love the CPU, though.....(I wish!).

Those 8 cores aren't gonna help performance any and neither will those 980s in SLI I have a 4790K and GTX980 and can manage 40 FPS in almost any situation with less than (30%GPU load). If I were you I'd pick up a 4790K and one GTX980 and use the rest of the money on flightsimming hardware or really good monitors.
