My Windows 10 64 bit computer (AMD proc and GPU) runs fine with the first editions of PR 2021, but won't open with any updates installed -- if it opens at it crashes.
On1 tech support says the problem is my older hardware. Most likely my AMD FirePro V4900 which AMD says is "Legacy". They have not offered new drivers for it for some 4-5 years. Wonderful! I bought it because it is full color gamut capable and has two display port outputs. I have two Asus ProArt monitors connected, one of which is a full A color gamut Adobe RGB Monitor. BTW it works OK with Adobe Lightroom Classic.
Anyway I'd like find something new that won't break the bank and will be fully On1 Photo Raw compatible and will not become "legacy/obsolete" for the next few years. I realize this would likely be a gaming card -- doesn't need to be full color gamut capable, but it does need at least 2 display port connection. I don't play computer games and I rarely shoot video, so it would be used for photo editing and day to day computing. Preferably not AMD. My experience with this FirePro had been a disappointment. I don't want to spend too much -- anything over about $200 would more than this computer is worth spending on. I'd rather just buy a Mac. or use this MacBook Pro which works fine with my two Asus monitors. After many years of running Windows computers I'm really fed up with the never ending expensive upgrades to hardware and software. I'm not a professional, and this stuff has to just work and let me do my thing and stay out of my way!
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Of course I don't know if newer graphics cards even use the same card slot that my motherboard has. I have to look into that.
Thanks very much in advance!
