Graphics Card older iMacAnswered
I have a 2017 iMac (21.5 inch, retina 4k), 3 Ghz Quad-core Intel Core i5, 16 2400 Mhz DD4 Memory.
It has Radeon Pro 555 2Gb Graphics. How does this stack up against the stated graphics card requirements for PR 2023 (Minimum: OpenGL 3.3 compatible video card with 2 GB VRAM, DirectX 12, 1280x800 resolution (at 100% scale factor).
To be truthful, none of this tech speak means much to me.
Running PR 2022 at present, and I could do a trial run of PR 2023 but might not be worthwhile given the age of my iMac? No plans to upgrade the hardware any time soon.
It does meet the minimum requirements but is less than what is suggested. The program should work OK but it could be slow. 2GB of VRAM is barely cutting it these days and most folks are finding that 4GB is a more realistic minimum.
I'd suggest giving 2023 a trial. 2022 will be left in place if you choose not to get it. Anything you edit in 2023 you might want to give a keyword to (2023 comes to mind) as the edits won't be backwards compatible if you make use of any of the new features. The keyword would allow you to identify those photo for reediting or as a remind why 2022 won't work on them.0
In PR 2023 you can select the processor you use (Intel, M1...); of course it don't concern the graphic card, but may help ?0
