    Windows 10 on ARM Support

    Anwar, I agree with your comment regarding cpu relevance for modelling. I didn't mean to infer otherwise. Have you seen the chip being developed by Cerebral Systems in California? It takes up an entire wafer of silicon (22cm X 22cm), has 400,000 cores and contains 1.2 trillion transistors! Obviously, it is not intended for mere mortals, like us.

    I should add that in my case, the role of a "faster and better" cpu has become almost irrelevant, simply because I rely mostly on gpu acceleration, either CUDA or RTX. Hopefully, Autodessys feels the same and steers Form.Z in the same direction. Gotta go now!

    Adobe must know something that the rest of the world doesn't.

    Windows 10 on ARM Support

    Yeah, I believe that ARM will certainly dent Intel's stranglehold when it comes to devices requiring low power consumption, such as laptops, but I can't see it going much further than that. Look at AMD and it's current Threadripper range. Despite achieving synthetic scores that put top end Xeons to shame, the hoped for uptake is not there. Organisations are not rushing to switch from Intel, simply because it is "the devil that you know", and therefore trust, despite the cost.

    Windows 10 on ARM Support

    In my opinion, only when or if ARM overtakes Intel as the predominant cpu architecture, and that will not happen any time soon. I read somewhere that ARM has trouble executing certain 64-bit x86 tasks so I wouldn't hold my breath. Can anyone really see four different versions of Form.Z under development (for ARM + Intel on both PC and Mac)? I certainly can't! Personally, I can't wait for Quantum Computing to come along. That will be a game changer!

  7. While we are in this jovial mood, I heard two lame (but don't tell them that) jokes from the kids: 1. "Q: What did one wall say to the other? A: I'll meet you at the corner." 2. "Q: What did one cannibal say to the other when he saw a tourist bus? A: Not tinned food again!" Boom, boom......

    I believe it is to 32 decimal places. Can support either confirm or correct this?

    Love it!
  11. Support has recommended to report any issues to them directly via email. Your request will probably get missed otherwise. There is too much "noise" here!

    OT. Chris your user name bugs me! Is the lower case spelling of your surname (a) intentional (b) a mistake (c) trendy or (d) none of the above?

    Chris is correct. You cannot have a numeric accuracy higher than the set number of decimal places.

    I'm glad to see that there is another Eizo fan amongst us. I use self calibrating CG277 monitors. They are stunning displays!
