Stormforce Gaming systems power content creation and demanding VR simulations…

Creating rich and involving content is no easy task, especially when the simulation software you focus on in your content is extremely demanding. Running any demanding game or simulation can be really taxing on your computer and usually requires extremely high performance hardware to achieve smooth frame rates whilst capturing and encoding gameplay footage.

We covered the spectacular Microsoft Flight Simulator in a previous article HERE and in the meantime, World Updates have been added to the title which enhance the fidelity and immersion of landmarks and locations by adding even more detail to environments with airports and points of interest being expertly modelled with stunning levels of accuracy.

At the end of December 2020, Asobo Studio added the highly anticipated Virtual Reality update to Flight Simulator providing the ultimate experience for sim enthusiasts who wanted to experience next level immersion and the feeling of being there.

This Virtual Reality update has allowed members of the Flight Simulator community to produce incredible content showcasing the feeling of real flight without compromise.

Stormforce Gaming recently received a Trustpilot review for one of our flagship systems from a customer who needed a system to power demanding titles on his HP Reverb G2 and Oculus Virtual Reality Headsets and 4K monitor. After checking out his Youtube channel, we just had to share some of this amazing content with the Stormforce Community!

The VR Flight Sim Guy Youtube channel provides a deep dive into the performance aspects in a variety of Virtual Reality flight simulations as well as interesting explorations, reviews and live streams. For Sim enthusiasts, the channel offers a raft of content on making the most out of your simulator experience and tuning your settings for smooth framerates.

We spoke to VR Flight Sim Guy to find out more about his passion and what made him choose Stormforce Gaming to power his VR experience and content creation workloads.

“I’ve always had a passion for VR as it gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in an environment that would otherwise be inaccessible in real life. This combined with my interest in flying (both in the real world and using flight simulators), has completely transformed the experience into something tangible and authentic.

The only issue has been finding the right hardware to power such dreams and since owning my previous PC (an i5 8600k, 1080ti), I needed something to power me into the future.

Using high fidelity flight simulators combined with the highest resolution VR headsets can be extremely demanding, but thankfully I found the right PC up to the task.

I can now run all my sims and games on ultra and experience the immersion I’ve always wanted. It’s absolutely amazing.”

It is incredible to see what the Stormforce Gaming community use their systems for and we love hearing from content creators about how our systems help them to improve their work.

A huge thank you to VR Flight Sim Guy for giving us permission to share his awesome content and for choosing Stormforce Gaming for his simulator requirements!
