Too early to say, but at least you should consider it. I'd rather wait for the first reports from actual buyers.

Hi guys n Girls,

This is probably not really relevant but has anyone noticed that in none of these assessment videos does a Flightsim game get a mention.  So is there any co-relation or comparison which is relevant to flight simmers and if so, which is the game to equate with say ... Xplane or P3D?. To be fair, the same applies to the AMD vs Intel CPUs,  It would be nice to see  a comparison done just with one or more of the flight sim programmes using the new CPUs and the GPUs.

This does not, of course, help the OP but I thought it was worth a mention and apologise if it is considered off topic

 

Regards

There is no way to benchmark Flight Sim, to begin it is not a game it is way more complex, one could just test it out of the box but that would be a waste. The moment you start adding addons you FPS will go down and it doesn't matter if 32 or 64 bit  so the rule of thumb is to get the best hardware you can afford or know your limitations.

I don't think any of our 32bit flightsims will benefit too much from this, as they are heavily cpu-driven, though you might get some joy at higher resolutions......

XPX and XPXI will almost certainly get a boost, but the current civilian sim that will probably really take full advantage of this will be Aerofly FS2

J Van E reported that when he switched from a 780 to a 1080 he received a 30% boost in X-Plane, but a 90% boost in Aerofly FS2

I'm thinking of grabbing one of these when the partner cards arrive (the founders editions have no style) and I expect my framerates to be outrageous.

You can also see from these benchmarks that while 4K is all the rage.... BOY do your framerates pay for it!

I personally think 1440 is much more reasonable.

I guess.there wouldnt be much of gain from my 2x titans sc in sli to a 1080ti?

Except on your electric bill, and that's why I am keeping my 3 titans x sli.

Angeli662,

My goodness, your computer is a monster. what do you use it for mainly and how do you configure your screens.

If at all possible, could you pm me with some pictures of it with sim loaded.  You cannot see from my avatar but I am using 6 monitors/displays but can only manage to fly with FS9.1 in this configuration.

Do you think it possible to drive more monitors with your system (given Flightsim CPU usage) I was considering upgrading to a dual cpu system and two by 1080ti's but this may be too expensive for me given that the only things I would not have to replace would be the case and the PSU.

Any thoughts?

Reason for PM is that I believe we may be going off topic here.

 

Regards
