Ryzen 2600 and 1060. Xplane developers didn't optimize the game for AMD so it doesn't work with AMD graphics cards well.

Hi CleversonFukuoka,

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

There are comments throughout this forum whereby AMD products (Option 1) do not perform as well as NVidia and Intel products (Options 2 and 3).

As X-Plane is resource hungry I am of the opinion that Option 3 is the better arrangement.

Before you make a final decision make time available to view Youtube videos from Michael brown referenced in the following link to an answer provided by me earlier today.  The link can be found at

Good luck
