GPU performance issues with Metal

Recommended Posts



There is something totally weird and wrong with Metal engine. I am using 1.6.1 Mac Designer. Metal holds hostage the GPU for way longer and way higher than OpenGL. See on the video what is happening. My MacBook Pro 2015 is heating up big time when using metal.And this example is very simple as you can see- just zooming and panning 2 elements. My logo designs are almost max GPU all the time on idle.

Hi Bonev,


Can you try this in the latest beta of Photo: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/80886-affinity-photo-customer-beta-170112/ and Designer: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/81411-affinity-designer-customer-beta-1707/

Both betas have had some improvements made to metal, so be interesting to see what results they give you :)
