I'm having the same issue. Since updating to Xcode9 simulator is extremely slow. Whenever I touch anything, I have to "move" the simulator window to see the updated interface.
Were you able to fix this?

Updating to XCode 9.1 fixed the redrawing problem for me, 6S simulator is now usable, but iPhone X simulator still sucks.

Hello everyone, sorry for necro but I'm having similar issue, I recently upgraded Xcode to version 9.2 and follow a guide to make my intel HD 5500 acceleration work, but now all simulators run extremely slow, like painfully unusable slow, freezing whole desktop when performing any action... Also they have a lot of particles and that is a real problem if I want to take screenshots for app uploads
note: this happens when using any 10.x or 11.x simulators
