When using XPlane 11 my i7 processor is constantly reaching its limiting temperature, 100°C, and then slows everything down until the temperature drops a little and then runs normally until the temperature rises again, all this within a few seconds of each other. I have to wonder then, is Xplane using the CPU instead of the GPU, for whatever reason?
