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.

Performance boost

Compared to current GPUs the GTX 1080 will deliver three times the performance of previous-generation GPUs.

What may be even more interesting for flight simmers – the cheaper GTX 1070 is still more powerful than both Titan X and GTX 980 – the current flagship that ships at $500.

GTX 1070

Full specs of the GTX 1070 had not been released. It will use 2048 CUDA cores (instead of 2560) and 8 GB GDDR5 memory (instead of DDR5X).

11S Sekiu - ORBX - review (5*)

Sekiu (11S). An interesting location, a difficult approach and a very nice airport immerse me the rare environment where grass grew too high, asphalt cracked, and deer comes out on the runway.

LDDU Dubrovnik Airport - ORBX (5*)

Dubrovnik. An excellent natural harbor and an airport where you can park a Cessna next to a 747. Plus centuries of grand history.

FTX Germany South - ORBX - review (5*)

FTX Germany South. Two hundred thousand square kilometers, hundreds of objects, enhanced airports and countless cities and towns. What can you expect from this scenery?

How to takeoff? Lesson 3

How planes take off? Why planes turn left on the runway? Do I need flaps for takeoff? That's the trim? Today I answer these questions.

Taxi - basic ground operations. Lesson 2

Taxiing. A simple affair, especially for someone who has used the simulator before. But you still ask so the description will be thorough.

Learn to fly - simulator setup. Lesson 1

To learn you need a simulator software, a joystick, and an airplane. I suggest FSX or P3D, basic joy and Cessna 172.
