Affinity Photo 1.9.1 GPU Benchmark/Support Question

Recommended Posts


I just ran the Affinity Photo benchmark on my Windows 10 PC (Ryzen 2700X, RX 5700XT) and noticed the GPU benchmarks all report "N/A".

I double checked the Performance option in Preferences and noticed Hardware Acceleration isn't enabled. When attempting to enable it, I receive the following message.

"Unsupported Machine Configuration

Hardware Acceleration requires Windows 10.0.19042 (May 2020) or newer and a modern GPU.
Your current operating system is Microsoft Windows 10 Home (version 10.0.19043)."

According to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feature_levels_in_Direct3D#Direct3D_12  the RX 5700XT should support Direct3D 12 Feature Level 12.0.

I'm not sure why I'm unable to enable OpenCL compute acceleration?

Thanks, Erin

Does a fix update 1.9.2 will come, where the issue is solved an the hardware acceleration is activated again?

Probably not in 1.9.2, but sometime after that when AMD has provided a fix.
