Hi there, i do have a similar question in regards to laptops and hope that you guys can assist me.
I am currently waiting for my new Laptop to arrive. It will have a GTX3080 at 140W TDP. (connector via usb-c with full dp1.4 support) So i think the GPU should be around a Desktop level GTX2080.
Now i do want the laptop mainly for playing iRacing and other Racing Sims in VR.
Additionally i am looking to upgrade my Headset as i am still using an old CV1.
So the question is, which one would be suited best?
To me its clear that i want to run the headset in wide FOV, because thats the reason for going with Pimax. The main question to me is, is there any real difference performance wise between the 8k+/8kx and the 5k+? I do understand that running the 8kx in native mode will use much more ressources then in upscaling mode.
However what is the difference in upscaling mode?
Does the 8kx in upscaling mode require more ressources then the 8k+ or the 5k+ in the very same mode?
I would like to try the 8kx or the 8k+ but im somehow afraid that the laptop GPU wont provide enough powerand thus i also thought of getting the 5k+.
Therefore i am realy surprised that you can run the 8kx even on an 2080 mobile version.
