My expectations were low as all the requirements published stated that 19 or below fps would probably not work. After loading X-Plane 11 1 month ago I have all the settings at mid to moderate and have not experienced any studdering, slow-downs, or freeze-ups. I monitor the fps and have seen fps go as low as 8 and as high as 17. The scenery is quite nice as well with much detail.

To me, Laminar Research mainly says that it works, but with flaws :
-Sim running slower than real time : Your flight will last 2 hours instead of 1.
-Erratic movements of small planes on the ground
-Brakes not efficient
Are the problems you are most likely to encounter and notice below 20fps.
