Our RTX PRO PC meets or exceeds all of the recommended system requires for X-Plane 11. This is the successor to our extremely popular Platinum system. The new RTX System is based around Nvidia's new 20-series GPUs. Most notably, the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080Ti. These new video cards support new technologies like GDDR6 memory, Ray Tracing, and DLSS. Ray tracing is an all-new way of handling light. It is much more advanced and lifelike way to produce amazing lighting effects. DLSS is a new way of handling Anti-Aliasing, which is twice as efficient as Temporal Anti-Aliasing (TAA). Anti-Aliasing helps to rid you game or simulator of jagged lines. Note: These new features are not available in all games.
The new RTX cards also have a special VirtualLink/USB-C port (2080 and 2080Ti). This port will be used to power future VR headsets. In the past, VR headsets needed a separate POWER, DATA, and VIDEO connection. This new VirtualLink/USB-C will handle all three in one connector.
Per the Steam VR (Virtual Reality) Readiness test, the system is VR-Ready. So, if you decide to go for the Occulus Rift or HTC Vive VR Headset, you'll have all of the power you need.
Mass storage is typically the bottleneck in just about every system. So, how do we reduce this bottleneck? We do this by providing an SSD now as standard equipment. That means Windows will load in seconds, not minutes. Anything that is disk-intensive will be much faster as SSDs are so much faster than regular hard drives. Also, SSDs rarely fail. So, your data is safer on an SSD. We use a high-speed Nvme SSD, which is faster than the typical SATA SSDs found in most systems.
We now are offering Intel's new 9th-Gen i9 9900K processor. These processors can go even higher that the previous generation with clock speeds hitting up to 4.9GHz. At these speeds, we have to go with an after-market high-end water cooler with a dual-fan radiator to maintain these speeds. Otherwise, thermal throttling occurs. In other words, the CPU will slow down when it hits 100 degrees C to allow itself to cool down.
The system supports one to four displays. With four, you can have wide forward view with three of the monitors, and use the fourth for your instruments. We have instructional videos on how to do all of this. Just let us know when you order and we'll send you the how-to videos.
