Hi, PC server to Mac DAW is my set up. PC only has the integrated Intel graphics onboard the CPU (i9-9900K).

Would adding a dedicated GPU improve it's CPU efficiency by offloading the graphics work to the GPU? Although Mac is my DAW OS, I also have the VE Pro 7 mixer on up on the PC's separate monitor open, while using my Mac for the DAW.

Thanks for any advice/answers.

Hi,

In most cases an additional graphics card would decrease performance a little bit, especially with lower latencies.

Hi Ben,

It's interesting that it would degrade performance a bit. Is that because the CPU would need to communicate with the GPU, adding perhaps latency, rather than dealing with everything in-house within the CPU itself?

Thanks.

Additional communication and driver.
It might be different for AMD CPUs, have not tested the performance difference with these yet.
