Pimax 8k Shipping this month?

  • It’ll be interesting but I think the RTX 2080ti will push the 8K past the limitations of the 5K+


    Sweviver also suggested the 8K for flight simming.

    I think Sweviver meant 8K for the vibrance of colors and less screen door effect. On the other hand Sebastian from MRTV stated that the 5K has better clarity for reading, which I think would be very necessary for reading the flight panel. We still need an exclusive Aerofly FS2 Pimax hands on review video!

  • What do you guys think these headsets will cost once they go to retail? Does anyone know what the kickstarter backers paid for theirs? The 5K+ does look very appealing for sims due to that sharpness of image compared to the CV1.

  • So that's about the same sort of ballpark as the original release price of the Vive. It will be interesting to see how these sets perform once they are out in the wild, thanks for the reply :thumbup:

    No worries, I'll be sure to keep you updated in how it's pans out. I'm quite a way down on the backers list though, so it might be a couple of months away still.
