Hello to all .. IM a freelance artist .. I worked with Corel Painter but loong time ago , painter x and Painter x3 )
one of the things why I left it was because some brushes ( or lot of them ) were like very heavy and with lag.. but oh well other times that now is history ..
I want to try Corel Painter again .. I heard good things about it.. besides it was the art program I started with :3 ..
So my question is .. does anyone know which pc cpu ,gpu is best for corel Painter 2022 ? multithread, or single thread ?
Im on the edge of burn a big chunk of money coz I need a new system mac or/pc .. right now I would reeeally want to try apple m1 macs . but I have some reservations .. or I can build a windows pc no much stress or preference.. in the end it will be a matter of trade offs anyway ..
( I read somewhere here on this forum.. that those chips Apple Silica macs are performing veery good! is this true ? a mac mini with 16 gb would be enough ? )
I also have a relative .. that could give me his 27 5k 2020 i7 ( 10700k with 5500xt amd gpu) imac .. but I need to travel to his home and its not precisely right around the corner :P ..
otherwise if its windows.. I would go with amd 5700x with nvidia rtx 3060/3070 and 32gb ram
and yeap I have a wacom cintiq :3
if anyone has some tips about all this I will highly appreciate it .
Suggest you review the spec rqmnts, pick something better than min. Strong processor, multi-thread, and strong GPU yield much better perf. as seen in the 2022 built-in performance report. 32GB enough for most people. SSD best instead of HDD.
Suggest you get a trial version and try on a sample computer and judge if OK or need more power.
thanks DougS! yes I thought about that .. but ahh I was looking for new pc parts but gpu I want they are still in out of stock :/
and my laptop is very old and sluggish :/ seriously its an wacom cintiq companion 2 with an i7 5557u .. or something like that . not enough power to my needs .. IM sure some painter brushes will run fine but some other s will not .
I have a chance to buy right now or an intel i7 2020 5k imac or an m1 mac mini with 16gb ram .
I wanted to be sure that painter will run fine on apple system intel/m1 .
seems Painter now make use of multithreads and gpu. (?)
