Hi there, I'm highly anticipating the release of X-Plane 11, and want the best iMac I can get (afford as well) to run it.
Should these Specifications run X-Plane 11 well?
iMac 27 Inch Retina 5K Display
4.0GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 (Turbo Boost up to 4.2GHz)
32GB (two 16GB) of 1867MHz DDR3 memory
1TB of flash storage (SSD)
AMD Radeon R9 M395X with 4GB of GDDR5 memory
I really love the Mac Platform so would love for X-Plane 11 to run well on one of my favourite platforms and devices.
X-Plane 11's recommended specs are available here.
I use Macs as well and generally prefer them, however if you are considering buying a new computer, you may find that PCs will give you comparable graphics power and storage for a lower cost. Just a thought.
