Even when all the sliders for rendering setup are down my frame rate doesn´t get any better.,  What should I do?

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

Firstly try and update High Sierra OS to the latest version as there was a problem produced by Apple when it was released after the release of X-Plane 11.

Secondly try and update to the latest version of X-Plane 11.  Even if it means using the beta version.  If you are running a Steam version you may not be able to update to 11.20 or later as Steam is not the same as the official version of X-plane from Laminar Research.

Thirdly have a look at the following link at http://questions.x-plane.com/16212/imac-add-2-extra-monitors    the creator the question has the same issue as yours and is using a higher spec machine.  I understand the person who supplied the answer (amelingu) is also a Mac user.

For best effect all screens should be of the same specifications.  The only difference being the serial number.

Good luck.
