I just bought X-Plane 11 off of steam and when I play X-Plane I have an intermittent frame rate drop or freeze if you will every 2-3 seconds. Immediately after the frames return to normal. This is a fresh vanilla install off of Steam, I have updated video drivers and windows. I've lowered the graphics and changed the resolution from 1440p to 1080p. My CPU utilization is approximately 33% on average with no spikes after loading the scenario, with GPU at around 34% @ 1080p.
System Specs are I7 8700k, 32Gb of ram, with a 1080TI. X-plane is loaded on an SSD and this is the only game/sim that this is occurring on. The most similar demanding titles that I can think of that I have currently installed are DCS World or Arma 3 with the draw range increased.
Does anyone have any similar experiences or know of possible troubleshooting to identify the issue.
