X-Plane 11.50 is a significant update that totally changes the delivering motor to utilize present day delivering APIs: Vulkan (on Windows and Linux frameworks) and Metal (on Mac). It is presently out of beta testing and accessible to all X-Plane clients!
This variant remembers new choices for the Graphics Settings screen to empower Vulkan or Metal, which require a restart of the sim to go live. If you don’t mind note that the primary burden time with Metal and Vulkan will be shockingly moderate. This is heaps of shaders/pipelines ordering just because; resulting runs will be quicker.
Preceding 11.50, X-Plane utilized OpenGL solely. OpenGL is a normalized approach to converse with a PCs designs card and put pictures on the screen. With rendition 11.50, X-Plane presents Vulkan and Metal. These are comparable principles yet they are more present day and productive than OpenGL. We decided to attempt this venture since we were unsatisfied with the exhibition of X-Plane running OpenGL. This deficiency was especially obvious through faltering, when the sim forgets about time and afterward bounces ahead.
Vulkan and Metal work likewise to give pictures on the screen. Not at all like OpenGL however, they were planned considering current equipment. Vulkan and Metal essentially decrease the measure of overhead important to converse with the designs card.
