Will X-plane work on Suraface Laptop 2 - i7; 16gb Ram; 512 SDD; Intel UHD.

Want to make sure someone can confirm this especially with the graphic card.

Hi, I highly doubt that X-Plane would run on this computer. I would recommend that you try our free demo at www.X-Plane.com/Try-It. Thanks!

Hi pampido,

I am not with Laminar Research; just a flight simmer.

You need to have a look at the specifications to run X-plane.  The details can be found at https://www.x-plane.com/kb/x-plane-11-system-requirements/

You haven't indicated any details of your i7 processor and details of the graphics card(GPU).

Is the GPU an integrated unit with the motherboard.  If it is not a dedicated card don't expect X-Plane to work.  The advice from experienced flight simmers, X-Plane PC builders and within Laminar Research, is you need a dedicated  graphics card.

Does your proposed unit have "good" internal cooling.   The GPU and CPU are known to generate heat when x-plane is running.  If no cooling or inadequate cooling the PC/laptop will crash.

Try the demo download.  It will only give you a 10 minute window to trial once you have configured the demo flight.
