Good day !!

I have a low frame rate on hard scenes, for xample EGLL. Framerate is 15-20 FPS, but my GPU is used about 20-35%, and same CPU utilization.  Problem occurs on x-plane 10 and 11, no matter.

System configuration is: FX-8370, 16RAM, GTX-1060-6GB, 8.1 PRO

Thank you !

You could be bottlenecked on either the CPU or GPU. Different settings affect one or the other. Add ons could be affecting your fps--default X-Plane aircraft for example are carefully optimized, but not all third party aircraft is to the same level.

Try adjusting your rendering settings in a controlled manner. Here are instructions for X-Plane 10 & X-Plane 11.
