Is it too late to make x-plane 11 playable using Intel HD graphics. I currently play the x-plane 10 demo without no problem. Just want to make sure because I know that X-plane 11 will be more graphic and I don't want to waste money.

Intel HD cards are pretty bad for XP. I'm pretty sure the requirements will be higher for 11 since it's even more resource hungry. And yes you definitely will need a better GPU like Nvidia or AMD.

I agree. X-Plane is not merely a matter of "making" it playable with HD graphics; it is much more complicated.

To reiterate, HD graphics are often not suitable for X-Plane, as they lack the proper resources to effectively run the simulator (which heavily relies on the computer's graphics). Thus, a dedicated graphics card is much more desirable.
