Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

X-Plane 11

Resolution: 3840 x 2160 - Quality: High - Renderer: Vulkan

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 96 public results since 10 April 2020 with the latest data as of 27 November 2022.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.

Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (X-Plane 11 - Resolution: 3840 x 2160 - Quality: High - Renderer: Vulkan) has an average run-time of 7 minutes. By default this test profile is set to run at least 3 times but may increase if the standard deviation exceeds pre-defined defaults or other calculations deem additional runs necessary for greater statistical accuracy of the result.
