Windows Version Speed

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

I recently got my hands on a baseline Level Macbook Pro 13"  2017 and of course I purchased Photo. I love and use the Windows and iPad Version so now comparing all three platforms, I noticed how slow Affinity Photo is on Windows. (Funny thing my Windows PC has 8 Cores, 32 GB Ram and a GTX1060 with 6GB VRAM, while the Macbook has only 2, 8GB Ram and build in Iris Graphics.).

Well to be fair its not really slow, its just that the Macbook and iPad App reacts almost instant, and for example when I do raw development and turn on chromatic correction my windows pc goes like and its there. On my iPad and Macbook its goes like 1.. done ;)

Same thing when I sent the RAW back to photos for further edits, its instant on the Apple Devices and on the Windows Machine it takes 5-15 seconds. (Makes mass edits almost impossible for me on the Windows Machine so I have to use Capture One for client work).

I know Affinity Photos focus is not on Raw Development but are there any plans to fix this kind of behavior or did I miss a secret option somewhere in the preferences?

Hi Pixel Coder,

Please could ou go into the apps preferences and under performance try changing the renderer drop down to see if this improves your app speed?
