lizz Posted June 23, 2015 Report Share Posted June 23, 2015 Hi Guys,I'm seeking for some advice here:For my home build simulator project I'm gonna use two networked PC's running x-plane for the visuals, these PC's are connected to 2 HD projectors.One of the X-Plane PC's I already use for a few years now, it has fairly good specs': i7-3930K firstname.lastname@example.org GHz, ASUS P9X79 MoBo, 16 GB mem, AMD Radeon HD7970 VideoCard and it runs somewhere around 30FPS in average.The new Computer will be connected to the existing one with a network and one of them will be the master.I'm currenly shopping around for this new PC and found the following (possible) configuration suitable (see below):Question I have is the following: what happens in a config where 2 X-plane PC's work in a master/slave configuration where one of the PC's is considerable faster then the other. I assume that the fastest PC will be slowed down by the slower one. So in my setup it would make no sense to invest a lot of money in a very fast new PC when it is hold up by the older slower one.Is this assumption true?And wouldn't it therefore be better to choose a config for the new PC that is more similair to the old one?
