    Default Laminar Research Releases X-Plane 9

    Phoronix: Laminar Research Releases X-Plane 9

    Boy, I can't way to see the results when comparing performance for fglrx, radeon and radeonhd drivers, all on the same computer hardware. That will be nice to use as a benchmark, more realistic than glxgears. Esp if you don't use a super duper fast system either. Stress the graphics card instead if possible.

    I used the -fps_test switch of this version. Suprisingly the Linux Version runs about 3 times faster than the Mac Version. I subsumed it on

    Really curious what brings Version 9 of this excellent simulator.
