Hi, I would like to know if the PC specs in the screenshot are good enough to get 30-40 fps in XP11.

Hi BrownGamer14,

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

I am unable to see your attached screenshot (attached????).

Have a look at the following link regarding the system requirements for X-Plane found at https://www.x-plane.com/kb/x-plane-11-system-requirements/  Serious flight simmers build something equal to or of higher specs than the recommended system requirements.  What is not mentioned is a good cooling system needs to be included as the GPU and CPU are resource hungry and generate heat which needs to be removed for best operation.

So, if your system is a laptop it should be gaming unit as these units have internal cooling.  If your systemis a PC you may need to upgrade only including cooling.

If you intend to purchase a new system go for a purpose built PC windows based.  If you want a Mac system don't waste your money on an overpriced system.  What you will pay for a mac will cost you big money for a low spec system.

If you are looking for a new system go for a NVidia graphics (GPU) card and an Intel (CPU) processor for a better performance.

Although x-plane is developed on a Mac system Laminar Research staff recommend using a windows based pc built system.

Not seeing your screen shot I hope the above helps.
