Hey guys!

No rush, as I'm only just very vaguely kinda-sorta thinking about replacing my iMac (last of the high-end 27" Intel models) in the next year or so, quite possibly with a high-end Mac Mini or Studio.

I was curious, particularly from any of the Serif staff, or anyone who's had experience … do the Affinity apps gain much performance running on an M2 Pro as compared to a plain M2?

I know with all the different aspects, multithreading, GPU usage, etc. it's not always as simple as "pro chip go faster" for all situations, so i'm wondering what's up here. Thanks!

(For background info, most of my "power" work is done in the Affinity apps, Photoshop when necessary, Sparkle for web design, and occasional short videos in Final Cut Pro. Otherwise using simpler stuff like Numbers/Pages, various text and document editors, etc. Not doing extreme stuff like video editing or code compiling.)

You can find Affinity v1 benchmarks for a lot of Apple systems, including 27" iMacs and M1/Pro/Max/Ultra and even an M2 here:

These are v1.10.5 benchmarks and the numbers can't be directly compared to v2 benchmarks but I think they provide good directional guidance on the relative speed of various configurations.
