nVidia GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 announced

nVidia announced two new Graphic Cards – a new flagship (GTX 1080) and a very interesting and affordable 1070. Expect them on the market in June and July.

Pascal architecture

Both GPUs use Pascal 16nm architecture allowing for better performance and lower power consumption than previously used Maxwell chips.

Netherlands by ORBX. The best area scenery in my P3D. By far! And in some places - the worst performer. It is a complicated review.

San Francisco International - a great airport and a significant place in the history of aviation. For P3D by FlightBeam. Amazing work on a marvelous destination.

74S - Anacortes - ORBX

Today I would like to take you to Anacortes - a small town in the state of Washington. We will start at the airport, and then we will go on a trip around the island of Fidalgo to check what else the developer has prepared.

Pedały MFG Crosswind - review (6*)

320 Euro spent on a simulator gadget? Usually, that is hard to justify. Not this time. MFG Crosswind changed my simulation experience more than any other device I have, and that counts for something.
