I have a TitanX.  I also already have a 40 inch and 65 inch 4kTV in my office and bedroom but I sim at my desk and even the 40 inch just occupies too much space for me.  That is why I loved the idea of a 31 at 4096x2160...    Just wondering if I made the right decision as well :)

I think he means have you actually plugged it in yet and tested?

 

Rob A reported the 970 ran his 4K quite well.

I was surprised at how well it worked with my 4K ... but obviously you can't max everything out, I can't do that with my Titan X either.  Terrain Shadows seem to cause stutters with my Titan X in mountain areas at dawn/dusk.

 

 

 


Rob, what are your thoughts on 4k gaming?

 

Spec's don't say HDMI 2.0  only that it has 2 HDMI ports ... but you have DisplayPort options so no need to be worried about HDMI 2.0 or not.  I didn't see a list of what resolutions it supports and at what refresh rate it supports them?

 

For twitch type gaming you'll want 60Hz, for Flight Sim 30Hz works very well.  With a Titan X you should have no problems staying above 30 FPS and in many cases you'll be able to stay above 60 FPS for flight sims.  For twitch games no issues with staying over 60 FPS so 60 Hz will work well there.

 

Cheers, Rob.

Thank you very much Rob!  It is 4096x2160 @60hz.  Just arrived about an hour ago and quite frankly I am gobsmacked...  The additional real estate, the clarity, I really can't believe my eyes.  I can see so much more in the VC now there is little reason to even have to pan for controls.  I can't wait to fire up iRacing and Assetto Corsa and actually have peripheral view now!  Going to be a game changer finding an apex :)

 

I know you have been preaching this for a while but I am now officially converted and a member of your flock :)

I believe the original message is supposed to convey the idea that a large amount of currency was spent on a technical item which peers later suggested was too complex for the existing equipment to fully utilize, at which point an inappropriate sexual act was committed.

What kind of frame rates are you getting in Xplane ?

What kind of frame rates are you getting in Xplane ?

Don't use X-Plane but really haven't seen too much of a hit in most places at 4k using the TitanX over my old monitor at 2560x1600.  I think the Titan was under-worked at the lower resolution. 

With that being said the immersion factor and having the huge peripheral view is amazing.  Couldn't go back now.

You'll need to be more specific with add-ons, area and settings ... testing I did was with Aerosoft's Heathrow v1.01 using SkyMaxx Pro v2.1.1 and HD Mesh Scenery v3 Europe using Carenado's CT206H ... Aerosoft's airport was in 16-19 fps range, but it was OOM free.  Outside of Heathrow performance was OK able to hit my target 30 fps.

 

But I haven't spent much time with XP10, usually just to see what's new and test out any changes ... so there maybe some adjustments I'm not aware of to help on the performance front.

 

Cheers, Rob.

How about KVNY with the default C-172 with the all of the slider maxed out ! and no clouds, max vis. What size monitor are you on ?

You know there is Xplane-10 demo ?

Rob is on a 4k monitor.  Size means nothing resolution means everything.  Also, just me being picky so I apologize but how about a please instead of a !  at the end of your request...

 

Yes I do know there is a demo, as I mentioned I don't use X-Plane though.

Are you sure, EVERYTHING maxed?  That's pretty insane ... but ok ... will report back.   3840 x 2160.  I'll try and make a video, but I've not been successful at getting nVidia Shadow play to work with XP10.35 even in Window mode.

i was blown away on how well x-plane worked with full 4k on a 970, i don't have it completely maxed out but i am getting 40-50 fps.i tried both p3d and fsx-se, on my machine, fsx-se edition was the clear winner for me.pmdg is able to keep 35 fps with no traiffic and everything set to very dense,3840x2160 and why i have the option to go up to 4096x2160 i have no idea.steve W haha you made me laugh today.what surprises me, i am gonna order a stand to hold my flight controls, so i don't have to sit so close, but sitting about 2.5 feet away on a 55 inch screen, i don't see any blurry textures like i did with 1080p,i have my aa in fsx scenery fixer at 4x, but could probably get away with 2x or off, maybe rob could suggest some 4k settings for 4k flight simming.
