Smile Vive Pro and I7 *8700K

Hi Guys I have been thrashing around on an Alienware Aurora i7 8700K with a 1080Ti and a m2 SSD using my Vive Pro.

Bloody amazing actually, the higher res Vive Pro makes it just almost perfect with no noticeable screen door effect.

There are no issues with FPS and it is just plain unreal,

The only problem is that you have to enter VR by adjusting the startup script and I can't exit it with it crashing but it works while you are flying so who cares.

I hope they add VR as a permanent integrated option with the next release.

I would also add I tried out an Area 51 I9 7900X with sli 1080 Ti and I can say that the Aurora at half the cost is much better in terms of performance. I could not get the I9 to overclock beyond 4.6 GHz while my i7 8700K is running at 5,2 GHz and what I do know is that Real flight likes high single core fast CPU performance. In fact I returned it ( the i9 7900x) to Dell it was so disappointing and bought the Aurora.

The I7 8700K is the CPU to buy for real flight as the i9 has a lower clock speed and it has huge heat problems and it's hard to overclock it.

realflight does not use the 10 cores it only needs 2 good fast cores so the i7 8700K is the chip to buy.

I know people will say buy an AMD but having been playing with flight Sims for 25 years the problem with AMD is they just don't have the same speed for floating point calculations which the physics engines of flight sims really need.

The i7 8700K is just bullet proof for this style of game
