3 TV setup

Postby Fractal » Sun May 19, 2019 1:43 pm

Dear All,

I'm upgrading the visual of my flight sim. I'm using P3Dv4.5. I have a home 737 cockpit running prosim737 hence I don't use a virtual cockpit. My graphics computer use a i7 5930K OC at 4.5Ghz, 32Gigs of RAM and an Nvidia 1080ti graphic card. I'd like to upgrade to a 3 x TV screen setup (most probably using P3D view group to minimise distortion). I will be running 1080p resolution on each TV ( 4k I guess isn't feasible in terms of performance - most TVs nowadays are 4K native but I assume it's not a problem to downsize res). I'd love to get your recommendation for what TV and any hint on how to best configure my P3D view group. In summary:

(1) Any good tips on what TVs to use and what specs are p3d friendly.
(2) Is my computer powerful enough to run medium setting graphics at 30 fps.
(3) hints on setting of the view group

Thanking you in advance for your help.

Kind Regards


Karim

I'm very interested in how this plays out. I am doing the same, but with 3 4K projectors. I'd like to see what FPS you'll get.

If you can fit them, get 85" 4k TVs :)

are you running the projectors at their native 4k resolution? With 1 PC ? What hardware are you using and what order FPS do you roughly get?

Best Regards

I'm hoping to run with 1 PC but we'll see how it goes. I suspect I might need 3 PCs.

i9 9900K overclocked @ 5.1Ghz
64GB RAM
2x RTX 2080Ti
2x 1TB Samsung 970 Pro
