I was wandering, does anyone know if affinity uses CPU to process or GPU? I do a lot of photo merging. I just built a new computer with a i9 9900k 64 GBs Ram and a asus 2080 Ti with 11GBs on. I'm not really getting any more speed than my old i7  12GBs with a HD 6800 with 1GBs.

On Mac GPU is utilized more widely, but on PC everything is done on CPU with GPU just handling the draw to screen.

Also: the forum search is your friend - there is so much knowledge on the forum that it is always worth searching :)

That would be great, because I would start a merge and walk away for a while sometime 30mins. to an hour.

Can you give any more information about the kind of merging you do, number of photos, size, kind of adjustments you're using and number of them, etc.?
