It was a matter of time, but we’re pleased on behalf of Laminar Research to inform you that X-Plane 11.50 has seen daylight.
X-Plane 11.50 Released, introducing Vulkan and Metal Rendering
X-Plane 11.50 is a pivotal update to the app that provides faster graphics processing, fewer visual stutters and an overall increase of Frame Rate (FPS). Taking advantage of the latest rendering technology, X-Plane 11.50 ships with compatibility for Vulkan on Windows/Linux and Metal on Mac. Think of these as the language of your graphics card (GPU).
We have measured improvement across a variety of different GPUs, including both AMD and Nvidia-built cards. As always, performance results with Vulkan/Metal will vary from user to user but we are quite pleased with the aggregate improvement.
Here are some more details!
Hello I have 2 GTX 980TI in SLI and I do not understand why in xp 11.50 the SLI is not implemented. Vulcan works perfectly with SLI, the NVIDIA technical team has confirmed it to me. I think xp always has to advance to improve because with FS2020 there are hard times.Thanks
I think this is a perfect question that needs to be answered by Laminar Research themselves. The best and quickest way is to contact LR via this URL -> https://www.x-plane.com/support/
