This is a test of X-Plane, a realistic multi-platform flight simulator designed for personal computers. This is commercial closed-source software and relies upon owning the Steam version. This test profile simply automates the execution for your own copy of X-Plane 12.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark xplane12.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

X-Plane 12

Resolution: 3840 x 2160 - Quality: Extreme

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 49 public results since 27 November 2022 with the latest data as of 14 April 2023.

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.
