Actually I checked and it was off already, I also tried yo enable it but it doesn't seem to make a difference.

At this point it seems that some times dealing with layers may be fine but mostly I feel C1 layers are slow on my PC. With a catalogue of about 800 photos brushing simple adjustments on a layer is quite laggy, meaning I click and move the move around and I see changes being applied about a second later. CPU usage varies quite a lot and it does get to 100% fairly often.

I feel my 8 years old CPU and GPU are not coping too well which is a shame since my Fuji photos look so much better on C1.

Is anybody with similarly old hardware facing the same issues?

8 year old PC, when was the last time you had a fresh install of Windows? (not upgraded, but from scratch)

The i7 should be able to cope fine with the files, are you using the Intel graphics or a 3rd party GPU?

I had a clean install about a week ago to try and see whether that would help, apparently it didn't.

My GPU is Nvidia GTX 580 which is again 8 years old and it wasn't top of the range even then. Judging by the Task Manager is looks like it's being used by C1 but not that much.

Probably only being used for the Screen Windows display, not image processing.

My 7 years old notebook has a Quadra 1000 and that only just meets the criteria for making some use of if for some processes in preference to running everything through the CPU.

As I understand it the GPU, even if powerful, is not necessarily used for all process just because it is there. It's not always the most appropriate tool for a processing task.

I seem to recall that in the early days of Xtrans sensor support, since the requirements are very different to a Bayer based sensor, there were additional limitations for processing Xtrans based files and everything was done through the CPU as a single thread process. Further developments and enhancements over the years will have advanced things from there but the different processing requirements of Xtrans vs Bayer based sensors will still need to be accommodated.

Whether that is having an influence on what you are observing is unknown but there are all kinds of considerations to take into account for older devices especially when working with larger image files.

For comparison my GPU is 218% more powerful. Before I upgraded to my current system, I used an i5 2500K with an AMD GPU that I upgraded every couple of years, and never had a problem with layers..

Might be worth asking support if your GPU is having an impact on the performance?
