OpenGL, Am I missing Something?

Recommended Posts

So been plowing through AD/AP coming from Xara. I had a couple posts regarding brushes, smoothing (can't wait to see this in 1.6), etc... Most of the suggestions, my searching and help files point me to the OpenGL settings under Preferences. Unfortunately I don't have these options. I'm running the latest Windows version of AD/AP, with:

  1. Windows 10 Pro X64 - 10.0.14393
  2. AMD A10-5800K
  3. GeForce GTX 1050
  4. 16 GB memory

So are these settings only applicable to the MAC version? I've done many OpenGL test/benchmarks and all is good, and I have the latest Nvidia drivers. I've also seen some posts in relation to AMD cpus and maybe some limitations, etc...is this true? 


One reason I'm asking is that I may be building a new rig in the next week or so and I'm leaning towards another AMD CPU (FX-8370) and may switch to Intel if there are issues/limitations with Affinity products.

You're correct. OpenGL is used in the Mac version. I'm not aware of any limitations with AMD chips and you'll find the system requirements for both apps here: https://affinity.serif.com/photo/full-feature-list/#system-requirements& https://affinity.serif.com/designer/full-feature-list/#system-requirements


Our apps will use your computer's CPU to perform most tasks, so the more cores your processor has, the better. We mostly use the GPU to draw to the screen. More information can be found here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/4978-support-of-dual-gpu-new-mac-pro/?p=21092
