X-Plane 10 shows frame rate of 60, X-Plane 11 with similar settings shows 12!!! Graphic Card Geforce GTX 1070

Was it at the same scenery for both versions that you saw this?

I can tell you that I also have a GTX 1070, i7 4770K default clock but turbo OC at 4.2GHZ, 32GB RAM memory. IF I am at a terminal at KJFK payware airport, my FPS are in low teens, at LOWI on a runway they are about 30. Flying over the ocean with about 55% cloud cover they are about 60. This is all with X-Plane 11. The only way for me to get reasonable FPS at KJFK is by turning off shadows to static.

Airport was LEMG, LFSB and LSZH, Aircraft Tomcat and C 172. No big change. Shadows static and Weather Cavok. X-Plane 10 does it perfect!

This what I get at LFSB and C130, I have not got C172: 29.6 FPS. My hardware i7 4770K default clock but turbo OC 4.2GHZ , Gigabyte GTX 1070 8GB, 32GB RAM memory. At same airport same aircraft and view I get 43FPS. So yes there is quite a large difference but the difference with your set up seems extreme. What is your CPU, memory hardware?

Look at this link it suggests turn off Threading Optimization among others.


You have a CPU that is probably bottlenecking your GPU in X-Plane 11. In time per frame. If the time is large CPU compared to GPU then you have a bottleneck.  You can compare how much of a bottleneck between X-Plane 10 and 11. Even my CPU, I7 4770K is a bottleneck in X-Plane 11. Anyway have a look at the link. You might get some better results.
