Production Update Discussions Jan 29/2019

Hi Heliosurge I completed the survey and stayed with my initial choice of the 8k I received an email from Dallas Hao on the 23/1 saying they had recived my details and were arranging shipment of my 8k but haven’t heard anything since no tracking number or anything and on the spreadsheet my order is still listed as details not confirmed so now I guess it a waiting game. Do you think my pc will run the 8k easy I have a 6700k@4.8ghz 32mb ram@3200mhz and a 1080ti gpu@1748mhz core/11228mem clock, I can’t wait to upgrade from the oculus.
Thanks

Bad tidings, Dallas was so kind to to let us know that it will be least one month until shipment.

Nothing runs an 8k easy :smile:, but your setup is good. I’ll let the pros answer this for you though. @Heliosurge

I think you’ll be fine. Hopefully, with the new BrainWarp, you’ll be in very good shape.

Hi Graham,

Your system looks like it has a good match for your 1080ti. The 5k+ & 8k perform similar.

A lot will depend on the programs/games your looking to run & the quality to performance.

I am running a Ryzen 7 2700x 16g ddr4 with a 1080ti.

On my previous setup i5 6500 16g ddr3 with the 1080ti i was able to run even hellblade on low to med settings.

I think you should be good but in truth you will need to try out what you have to see if it meets acceptable quality to performance.

20series does give some nice gains. But I would see how uour setup fairs. Especially with the new Amd cpus & gpus rolling out. With the release of pci-x 4 or 5 over the horizon it might be best to stretch what we have til then.

@spamenigma is currently running only a 1080 on the 5k+

@fresco has been cross testing a 980ti & a 1080ti on the 8k.

At present the 8k may take longer to receive as they mentioned an issue with panels (whether quality or supply issues)

@anon74848233 would need to look into this as some 8k’s have been received this month.

Thanks

According to your update, enough 5k+ produced to sent to backers. I am backer 1759. Answered survey more than one month ago. Still do not have my Pimax 5k+ or tracking number. In your file from 7 January I see “sent”. How can it be?

Can we already start bothering your regarding pre-orders? When? Where? How much? :smiley:

Im wondering, will the overseas warehouse work during the spring festival?

Will they be shipping items they received from SH?

@anon74848233? @PimaxUSA?

the oversea warehouse is in UK or one near states. i guess they will work cause there isn’t any holiday

Hi SlickRick, The overseas warehouse won’t begin operation until at some point in March as previously stated in both the press release and subsequent updates. It’s still on schedule and the first small allotments have left SH.

What? Backers have to wait 2 months to get their headset?

Kevin, can you elaborate? Which overseas warehouse?
All the shipments will stop until March? Surely not?

Hi Sofian - No. Our overseas operation is initially related to rapid service and repair. In the beginning we will not have sufficient devices for any fulfillment. All confirmed address 5K+ backers are already shipped. Once we do begin fulfillment it will be for new orders in the NA region.

I am a 8k backer, can you confirm that Pimax will resume shipping on 8th February?

Don’t think 8k shipping resumes before February 19th.
