I had heard that my new Microsoft surface (Pro 6, 16 GB RAM Intel core i7) might be too under-powered to run Topaz products.
I have installed Topaz Studio 2 on it and I was pleasantly surprised to find that it actually ran fairly well.
I even installed Topaz Studio 2 as a plugin for Affinity Photo and again found that it worked fairly well as a plugin. (please note that several other plugins were listed as plugins in the affinity photo plugin menu - clarity, detail, glow, simplify, impression and texture effects. They all caused nasty crashes when called from Affinity Photo. Topaz Studio 2 is the only program from Topaz I have installed on my surface).
Happy to see something working better than expected!
