Pimax hmd vs DCS world discussion

I open this tread for people how want to chat about DCS with pimax


I fly f18 and a10
My spec is rysen 3900, rtx 2080 32g ram
I bought the 8k plus because i play 90% DCS and dcs is not 4k so for me spending 300$ us more for the native 4k isn’t necessary.
After playing with it for two weeks i can say my spec is the trick minimum tu enjoy it and still i have to sacrifice some setting. With my setting it very fluid no stuttering at all a low level. Ihave to lower the oversampling at 0.9 but even a that setting the quality is better then my sansung odyssey. I can easily read gage. But the small gage in the a10 i can’t read text without getting close. But i gave to make some tradeoff to keep the game without stuttering. Im waiting for the next gen videocard for next summer. With these im sure i will gave the best of both world

Hi @Alain
Do you use smart smoothing and what refresh rate?
I’m also thinking to get 8k+ for dcs.

I am interested to know what is the algorithm settings that Matthew Hines mentioned on fly sims.

Honestly, for DCS I would highly recommend the 8KX over the 8K+. The difference is quite big and if you really expect to read all gauges and feel the huge upgrade, 8KX is the only option.

8K+ is a nice headsed, but for simulators, 8KX makes all the difference. Trust me on this one.


Yes i use smart smoothing at 90hz

As of pimax advertising when you dont have a 4k signal the 8kx works as a 8kplus and dcs is not 4k so that why i have the 8k plus

What do you mean by DCS is not 4k ?

DCS can run in any resolution that you set it to.

DCS is whatever resolution you want. It looks glorious at 4K on my 4K TV. That’s part of the reason I’m finding the transition to VR difficult.
