When will Metal be supported on X-Plane11? We have had some updates that the X-Plane11 team and developing the support but does anyone know when they plan to release it for public use?

Hi Blocker35

I'm not with Laminar Research, just a fellow simmer in the UK, but you may find the following link of interest, assuming that you haven't seen it already of course? :-

When the webpage opens, you will probably have to scroll to the top of the page to see the beginning of the article.

Probably again this year according to the article mentioned above.  It is over time because X-Plane 11 is extremely slow with planes such as the Zibo 787-800X. I am around 16 fps.  The Aerosoft FS2 runs at 100+ in 4k ( under VULKAN ) and with much more beautifull scenery.
