Sweet!   I wonder if iracing will follow suit.  I used to be heavily involved with that.  I would probably have to rebuild my simpit to allow my steering wheel and pedals to be easily swapped out with my stick/throttle and rudder pedals, but I have been tempted ever since getting into VR

Me too, used it for keeping my situational awareness up for real world racing.  High FPS provides a small advantage in iRacing so most of the time I dialed graphics settings down.  I'm still paying my subscription to iRacing but I haven't logged in and done any races for years ... not even sure if I'm still ranked or have my license with them?

Never did like how iRacing handled "bumps", seemed much more accurate in Assetto Corsa ... I know iRacing touted themselves as having the best physics, but it's much like the P3D/XP11 physics debates ... in some areas iRacing was better in other areas Assetto Corsa was better (same applies to P3D/XP11).  I digress, but it's good to see a quality racing sim get some ray tracing support.

Cheers, Rob.

I believe we may have raced a few times.  I really enjoyed the vette.  I believe you may have been just winding down on iracing while I was spooling up.  I haven't tried AC but it looks good.  Haven't touched it since I got back into flight sims a few years ago.  Either way future looks bright for hardware and I look forward to your take on the 2080Ti

 

Kind Regards,

 

Brett

HDMI 2.0b doesn't support that?  Spec: https://www.hdmi.org/manufacturer/hdmi_2_0/

HDMI 2.1 does Spec: https://www.hdmi.org/manufacturer/hdmi_2_1/index.aspx

If the 2070 does indeed out perform the TitanXP, that will open a much bigger door ... I hope it turns out accurate.

Cheers, Rob.

So apparently DP 14a can support 8k at 60hz with DSC, it's supposedly visually lossless...

I was an "alpha" tester at Iracing. Then I retired shortly after it went live. 🙂

@Rob Ainscough You'd be a LAG wrecking machine if you raced with that 8k TV at 30fps locked and vsync on. 🙂

The thing I had hard time with at Iracing was the sound. I couldn't hear the physics ...

It sounds like this may be a good time to keep one hand on our wallets. Unless you like to be the "first guy on the block" then it may be a good thing to wait for some real test to be performed on the "magic" cards. LOL Nvidia may have hired the old DTG guys to promote this whole release.

Well if you believe this article and nVidia's claims the 2080 (the $750 2080 and not the $1200 2080Ti FE) of 50% faster at "regular games" when running in 4K ...

and for the 2080Ti

we saw a demonstration of the technology in action, with the Unreal Engine 4 Infiltrator demo running at 4K resolution side-by-side on systems using GTX 1080 Ti and RTX 2080 Ti. A frame-rate counter was active on both, showing the Pascal card running at around 35 frames per second, with the RTX 2080 Ti delivering twice the performance level across the entire demo - which does seem to confirm Nvidia's claims.

Soooo ... I'm thinking you addicts (myself included as I already forked over the cash) will have a hard time keeping the wallet closed 🙂

Cheers, Rob.

It was a press event, the demo was run with the press present and watching, so not really "nVidia says" ... more like "nVidia shows" and the press "say".

As usual you are probably correct. We have been in such a long slow period of real hardware progress that we make really easy targets.🔫

10 years in the making, it’s not just the next iteration of an existing design.

Either way I’ll post my results when the new GPUs arrive ... also heard the 9900K might be out same day of my GPU ship 10/1

The combo should provide for some promising improvements.

For VR lovers I think this setup will be a dream come true.

Cheers, Rob

Rob- Can I ask what version you purchased and why you made that choice? Lots of variations out there. Are they all the same?

My 3570k @ 4.5 GHz is a little over six years old.  I've upgraded the video twice and currently have a 980 Ti.  I get decent performance at 4K/30 in P3D with medium-high settings, mostly in the NGX.  But I've been planning to do a new build sometime in the next few months and the 9900k with some variation of an EVGA 2080 Ti on an ASUS mobo is currently at the top of my list.  When I was young I would have had "go fever" to get everything on day 1.  At this point in my life, with a very stable system, I can wait until some of the dust settles and drivers are stable for use with P3D.  The person most anxious for me to do a new build is my daughter who wants to replace her 770 with my 980 Ti.

I purchased two 2080Ti FE from nVidia store.  I simulate in 4K and my goal is 30 FPS ... I usually just increase graphics settings until I drop to about min of 30 FPS.  If you want best bang for the buck, then that is probably the 2070.

I plan to get some full coverage water blocks for the 2080Ti's when they become available.  I'll run SLI and see how that goes.

Cheers, Rob.

Hope you are right mate. Coming from an i7 4770K and a 980ti, FPS’ are starting to drop heavily even on medium-low settings VR, and I’m one of those that can’t come back to 2D after VR.

Early october for that i9 9900K? Can’t wait!

Cheers

Carlos
