Firstly, I have not updated from v.4.1.2 yet and noted this in the changelog in regard to v4.4.0
" * Intel devices optimization: Now a new option “Intel optimization” is in advanced preferences. If you choose “Yes”, it will optimize 6th-10th generation Intel CPUs and Intel iGPUs for Gigapixel. Typically, it will make Gigapixel run 3-5 times fasterthan the previous “CPU” mode. But we cannot guarantee if it can work for CPUs from other vendors (e.g., AMD) or any Intel CPUs before 5th generation. If you still have very high performance desktop GPUs (e.g., NVIDIA 1080), “Enable dedicated GPU” (Yes) option will be the best choice. However, if you have relatively better Intel CPUs or Intel iGPUs than low performance GPU, you will see faster performance on Intel optimization (Yes) option.
- Automatic detection for the best devices choice: Now you do not have to choose between GPU/CPU or enable/disable Intel optimization manually. Gigapixel will automatically run a benchmark and choose the best advanced preferences settings for you to achieve the highest speed on your computer. The benchmark will only be triggered once when you process the first image. Thus, the first image will take longer time than usual."
Now my CPU is the Intel i5 760 2.8Ghz and having looked it up I have found out that it is 1st Generation (please don’t laugh )
So, has anyone running such an early Intel CPU updated to v4.4.0 and is all well and if not was it ‘made to run’ AOK by manually setting the preferences as appropriate???
TIA for any replies
