I updated this morning to 11.30 and noticed a severe drop in fps vs previous version.  I have a i7-8700K with a GTX 1060 6GB.  My son also uses it with similar hardware and saw the same fps drop with latest update.  Looking at CPU and GPU usage in task manager, I can see that x-plane seems to be using the CPU a lot more to render (near 95%) and the GPU less than 25%, whereas previously the CPU usage would be much lower (under 50%) and GPU usage would be nearer to 70%.

I have been having the same issue sense updating to 11.30 yesterday. I do not partake in any development or bate testing and like so many with this issue was prompted for the update when I opened the flight sim. I have been told that the 11.30 is a final release. This is from what I have seen a common issue for some users. The system and or components does not seem to be a factor as I am running the same processor with an MSI 1080 with 11 GB. I am looking for a way to revert back to the latest installed stable version but no luck as of yet. :(

Hi diabox,

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

Firstly X-Plane 11.30 is still in the testing stage.  It has not been officially released as yet.  When?  Soon!

Drop in frame rates is a known problem with XP11.30. See other postings in this forum.  In the meantime the following link found at  may be of some interest.

The final release is out and it has choked the system to the point of unusability.
