  1. Rob, Thank you for all the information on this new processor! I was also underwhelmed by the lack of PCI lanes. I planned on running dual M.2, SLI 2080TI's as well as a 10Gb interface card. This whole architecture seems like a step down from the X299 platform. Intel really tried to wow us all with that 5ghz turbo speed but it seems like everybody is having problems with heat. Based on the information you provided, I am now considering just upgrading from the 7820x to the 7920x or 7940X and extending the life of my existing machine. Thoughts?
  2. EXCEPT at KSEA right? I am curious to know if your rig will maintain 30FPS at the toughest airport in the game.
  3. I don't agree. Less PCI lanes, maybe a 400MHZ difference. The PCI lanes matter to me, I run a 10GB home network and I have a ASUS 10GB card in one of the slots. Not a lot of benefit at the moment to going with the latest processor. I think I would rather have the second card and wait for another generation of processor to come out that offers a more significant upgrade: https://www.techspot.com/review/1730-intel-core-i9-9900k-core-i7-9700k/page6.html http://hwbench.com/cpus/intel-core-i9-9900k-vs-intel-core-i7-7820x There is a great thread by Rob above that explains the benefit of NVLINK at HIGH resolutions. Make sure to scroll down to view single RTX2080TI vs 2.
  4. I have been so impressed with the single 2080TI that I have(in comparison to the SLI 1080 setup I had before) that I just ordered my second one. Main reason? I game in 4k and the way the 2080TI seems to handle heavy clouds is VERY impressive to me. I was also able to turn on HDR for the first time and while my FPS is not extremely high, the game seems to run at a more consistent FPS with more detail and better lighting. I have a 7820X OC'd to 4.7 on water. 32 Gigs of ram and a 960 M2 drive where all the P3d stuff lives. I find myself flying more, and spending less time tweaking the P3D config. I looked at Rob's comparison again before ordering the second card and I feel as though a second one is justified when used at my resolution. The performance gain IS worth it! If I spent all of my time in Aerofly 2, World of Warships or the latest FPS shooter then a second card would NOT be needed but this is P3d and NVLINK scaling in this game seems to do fairly well at higher resolutions. I will report back when the second card arrives.
  5. Happens with the automakers every single year when new model years hit the lot. I am not surprised to see Nvidia doing the same thing.
  6. Thanks David, are you using Nvidia Inspector or are all of your card settings configured via the P3d control panel? I can report about the same FPS on my rig with the new 2080TI installed. 19+ with Seattle City and Airport X, FLSABS A320, rex sky force 3d, ultimate traffic live and GSX. I will certainly grab another Zotac AMP 2080TI in the future with Nvlink but I am going to let the market calm down and wait for the prices to drop.

    2080 Ti's dying!

    I had a Zotac 2080TI that was DOA. Sent it back and bought another one through a different seller.
  8. I didn't think this was true unless you went with the more expensive professional use cards per the video below. Nvlink on the RTX platform is still SLI(with much more bandwidth) but aggregating the memory on the cards is still NOT happening(yet).
  9. Rob, As always great data thank you! Graphic processing power is increasing generation over generation at a pretty brisk pace. Are we not reaping the benefits in Prepare3d because we are increasing the resolution or is the graphics engine not designed or optimized to take advantage of these cards?
  10. I have a 1080 SLI rig that I run P3d on now. My RTX 2080TI is on order and will be here in a few weeks. I will post my general impression once I get the card.

    Anti Aliasing - Constant Shimmering

    Is there a current and updated Nvidia inspector and configuration guide for Prepar3d 4.3?
  12. Any advice on getting Active Sky installed in a network configuration? http://hifisupport.kayako.com/Knowledgebase/Article/View/6/8/instructions-for-networked-configuration-with-simconnect These instructions seem a little old. Do you install the software on the networked machine? Is there a better more updated guide out there?

    Oculus Rift & P3D

    This is the same experience I had with the Dk2, great experience but the resolution wasn't high enough to read the displays in any cockpit... Hopefully the next rift has a higher resolution.
  14. @Rob Ainscough What are your thoughts on the x299 Prime? I just received my 7820x and I am on the fence about these motherboards. I am trying to decide between moving forward and buying the prime or waiting on more ROG boards from Asus to hit the market. What do you think?
  15. This thread is getting off topic. Yes, I would buy a new MD-11 if it was ported or designed from the ground up for P3d V4. It is still my favorite airliner to this day!
