Managed to snag a Pimax 8KX from Microcenter in the USA. I was back-and-forth on it for a while. But finally got it.
I am very glad I got it. I have loved my OG 5K+ since launch, but the level of clarity on the 8KX is amazing.
i7 10700K + EVGA 3090 FTW3 Ultra = balanced setup.
Been playing Elite Dangerous today. Black levels are better than my 202 5K+ for sure. Played a bit with contrast/backlight and got it to a great balance. I was inside a space station and the clarity was amazing, especially as my ship came out of the hangar.
Half Life Alyx: holy moly. I started a new game and spent about 15 mins looking over the first balcony. I also scared the cat.
Lone Echo: also holy moly. The detail is breathtaking when in space. Black levels are also better than I expected
QUESTION 1: I read that the new 90Hz firmware doesn’t work with the latest NV drivers? Any advice? I have not flashed to the new firmware yet.
QUESTION 2: Has anyone figured out how to extend the standard cable yet? I tried a DP powered extender and couldn’t get it to detect the Headset.
