Hei!

I always tought that I need good GPU for Illustrator and Photoshop.
My GPU is compatible with Illustrator with GPU performance thing turned on. I have most complex cartographic world map open with millions of points, still GPU temp goes hardly above my body temp. It is not smooth and fast and large files tend to crash more often than smaller ones.
My new and faster PC's performance is similar to my 6 year old PC's.

I tested different processes like exporting raster from Illustrator, rasterizing PDF in photoshop, opening files. Never any resource gets fully used, RAM, CPU, GPU nor VRAM. What should I make of it? Performance limits are coming from programs itself and no hardware matters beyond recommended requirements?I would expect that hardware works in full capacity and makes everything as fast as possible.

Hi there.

We're so sorry to hear about this. There is no specific preference or feature in Illustrator or operating system to decide how much of the resources will be utilized by a specific application. You may try these steps to improve Illustrator performance on Windows.

Regards,

Srishti

Does anyone have seen their PC using GPU in any Adobe program on scale that you really benefit from it? What program and version you are using?
I never get over 5% GPU usage. I have believed for the longest time that graphic design needs GPU, but it seems to be a myth.
