Is This Porsche Dashboard Worth It?

The Porsche 911 Cup Display Unit was manufactured to give sim racers the most realistic dashboard they have ever experienced. ChampionJoe tested it, and it left him speechless.

Getting all the information like how far up the rev range you are, what gear you’re in, the speed that the car is going when sim racing can often vary depending on how limited your hardware is or how you have the HUD set up on each game.

But if you want to go a step further and bring a much more prominent dashboard into your sim rig setup, then Sim-Lab have something for you. The DDU10 is a perfect replica of the screen that can be found in a Porsche 992 GT3 Cup car where the traditional speedometer is placed in the road car.

To find out if it’s worth the price tag of €599, our very own ChampionJoe put it through its paces.

Positives and Negatives

One noteworthy point against the DDU10 is its small number of compatible wheelbases. As of now, it’s compatible with the SC1/VRS/OSW, SC2 Ultimate, Fanatec DD1/DD2, Simagic Alpha, SC2 Sport/Pro, Fanatec CSL/CSW and Accuforce V1/V2.

It’s also very big, the previous DDU product was the 5, which referred to the fact that the screen was five inches. No prizes for guessing how big the 10 is.

It’s enough to take up a sizeable portion of your vision. So unless you’re running a huge multi-monitor setup or a single monitor that is pretty huge, a lot of the screen will be obstructed. But for the most part, it’s just blocking the in-game car’s dashboard which this device will be essentially doing the job of anyway.

One benefit of the size, along with the refresh rate, is the lack of input lag, everything runs as smoothly as a hot knife through butter. Plus it’s very clear, so you can see all the relevant information you need.
