I'd like to move the first steps in the digital arts world as a hobby. I tried with my current macBook Pro and a Wacom tablet and found the lag too bad to enjoy drawing (it's a mid-2015 4-core i7 with 16GB RAM and only the integrated Intel Iris Pro GPU) As I'm looking for an upgrade I'm wondering what's the minimum that could give me a low-latency drawing experience. I know that brushes can be very computationally expensive if one wants to simulate liquid colours dripping and blending with other layers and whatnot. So let's say I'm going to stick to pencil-like or fairly simple brushes. Would a macBook Pro 2018 i7-6core, 16GB RAM, and a Radeon Pro 555X 4GB be enough? I'm using Affinity Designer V2.
Unfortunately we have discovered a bug with AMD's OpenCL driver in the AMD Radeon RX 5000 series and above graphics cards. This has been reported to AMD, and while we wait on a solution, we have blocked these cards from enabling hardware acceleration. We hope this will be a temporary change, but unfortunately we can't give estimates on when it's likely to be fixed. There is no need to downgrade from 1.9.1 to 1.8.5, as the software-only performance will be the same between these two versions. Thanks for your patience.
