TV recommendations with higher end computer and 1080 video card?   I just want to use one monitor.   I am presently using Asus 40 inch computer monitor and the only thing appreciably larger would be a TV.  I assume that QLED  would be better than OLED due to burn in possibility with the latter.

I just changed configuration completely for XP. Here is my config:

  • Asus ROG Maximus XI Hero
  • Processor I9 9900K with watercooling)
  • G.Skill F4-3200C16D- (4x8GHZ)
  • Aorus Gigabyte Extreme rtx 2080 ti
  • Samsung 49 Qled
I am French. The text is translated with Google Translation. Just before installing this new config, I had the 1080 gtx with the Samsung Qled 49. The screen is just sublime connected DP. I fly with the 737 ZIBO + Fly with LUA + Orthophotos in 17 zoom. The FPS was 25fps max with antialiasing at 4 and all other settings set at 3/4.
With this new configuration; the fps goes up to 45, 50 max with the same settings.
I will test up the settings to get stable 35fps.
This screen is fantastic. But also, the CG is monstrous. Soon, I will couple the screen with the trackIR that I should receive in the next days. Do not hesitate if you have other questions

Hi vjf000,

I am not from Laminar Research; just a flight simmer from downunder.

I am not conversant with the difference between OLED and QLED but what I do know is X-Plane has always been designed to run with screens (monitors or TVs) configured to run at 1920 x 1080 or multiple screens in multiples thereof ie 5760 x 1080.  This means you can use a screen of whatever size you can afford.

I understand X-plane has now been configured to run with 4K resolution but still works best with 1920x1080.  Until this recent change the screen had to be configured (magnified) for anything to look reasonable or the 4K screen resolution had to be "dumbed down" but running at 60 MHz.

In relation to sbbasile's comments I would respectfully suggest it is his new "overkill" system that is providing the increase in frame rates rather than the screen type an size.  I have seen nothing from MIchael Brown at XFoprcePC who produces YouTube videos in relation to using X-Plane, indicating a higher resolution screen will give you improved frame rates.  Michaels videos can be found at  He does not support the 4K concept  (a video about 2 years back).  The only benefit is to swap  the screen to watch television.

Laminar Research recommends Michael's business as the preferred supplier of PCs suitable for X-Plane within the USA.
