Regardless of the "power' of one's system, X-Plane runs using OprnGL - this API essentially uses only one core for writing to the GPU. Newer APIs (e.g. DX12, Vulkan) have the capability to use multiple PCIe lanes. Until X-Plane is re-coded (about a year off) to use one of these recent APIs, low frame rates will be a common issue. Frame rates here are 14 - 20 or so with a similar system.
