First of I must admit I am not much of a technical person, so forgive me if I seem a bit naïve. I've been running AD for a couple years now and have had a very good experience, mostly doing small vector drawings. As I have gotten better I have been creating larger illustrations and it seems as though my computer cannot handle the larger files. I start getting a lot of lag and the fan sounds like my PC is about to take off. My specs:
HP Pavilion PC Windows 10 Home (1809 64-bit)
AMD A12-9800 Radeon R7 12 compute cores 4C+8G 3.8 GHz
8 GB RAM
I've also recently purchased an XP-Pen Artist 22E Pro. It works great until the lag and fan issues start. I've tried adjusting the RAM usage limit in preferences to 4GB, but that hasn't seemed to affect the performance. What would be your suggestion/recommendations? Add more RAM? A better graphics card? Or is it something more technical?
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
