Nvidia Surround or Triplehead2go??? HELP!

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,


I've been doing a bunch of test trying to get my system setup so I have a VC front view and two side views.


I have a full enclosed Cessna simulator that has two doors that I've installed two 27" monitors and a 42" Sharp Aquos TV that I use for my front forward view. (All three monitors are 1920x1080)


My system specs are:


Windows 7 64Bit

Sabertooth Z87

i7 4770K Quad Core OC @ 4.2GHZ

Gigabyte GTX 980 Ti

Crucial SSD 240GB HD

16GB DDR-1866


Followed Nickn's Bible and NI guide word for word...


So this is what I have done so far, I used NVidia surround to span a 5760X1080 view across all three monitors, then opened two new VC views and dragged them over to the left and right sides of my simulator doors and scaled and zoomed them into position.


Now everything looks great and I'm getting my 29-30 FPS in good weather using Active Sky Next, but as soon as there's some heavy overcast or precipitation my FPS tank into the teens.


I guess my question to everyone is, would I benefit from trying the same setup using Triplehead2go? to be able to get better frame rates in heavy weather with the two new VC views or would in not make any difference?


I really don't know what the Matrox Tripleview2go capabilities are so any info or help would be greatly appreciated!

Did you build your Cessna-enclosed cockpit or have one from TRC/Simkits? Though I have changed to a 55" Samsung curved 4K monitor, I previously used a 3-monitor TripleHead2Go and had no issues with it. I have never used Nvidia Surround,but I have heard it is better to use than TH2G .
