Newly set up BizonBox 3 w/ NVIDIA GTX 980 Ti.  MacBook Pro 2016 interfaced via Thunderbolt 3 to Bizonbox 3.  I have X-Plane 11 configured at about 80% of its rendering capability, and I am observing slightly under 20 fps when the ground is visible (35 when in the clouds).

Do you believe the limitation may be the CPU vs the GPU?  Or if I go even higher (GTX TITAN 12Gb VRAM) that I will get better results?  I do like using the laptop rather than getting a separate computer, but would appreciate feedback.

NOTE:  The application crash with X-Plane 11 w/ the BizonBox3 evidently was resolved.  After the latest beta update, it is no longer crashing.

What does the FPS display under GPU and CPU?  The one with the larger value is the one holding things back.
