  • Posted to How much RAM do we need for design?, in reply to John P , Nov 15, 2019

    Tbh I just bumped my machine up to 32 from 16, as I was starting to get severe performance issues with AE and Character Animator. But 16 can definitely keep you running quite well if you're not overloading visual effects on the timeline.

    A good SSD however can make all the difference too!

    You know, that's an interesting one. I'd say the BenQ is better, BUT mainly because of the weirdness I get from my machine swapping between resolutions.

    Chrome renders fonts and png's like dirt on the Apple screen, but drag it across to the BenQ and they look lovely. But then sometimes the BenQ likes to scale things ridiculously small.

    I'd definitely say the colours are superior on the Apple display, and probably marginally better as well for native application font rendering.

    BenQ EL2870U 4K + Apple 2K cinema screen as external screens here, on a Dell G3 and also no rendering/anti-aliasing issues... Which windows is generally terrible for. Maybe Maksymilian has the browser set to a non-native zoom level or something

    I've been a software engineer for a very long time, and to be fair I feel a lot of these "flavour of the month frameworks" are very easy to ignore/miss/not be aware of, particularly if you're working with enterprise clients that require stable, well-developed systems.

    It's for you to put on your coffee table so that you can tell everyone who visits about how sustainable you are being, while not actually having to change your consumer habits

    I find it fascinating to browse through big UI kits like this. Although I'd be really interested to find one that has actual components for developers to use - i,e a kit like this, but all angular material or react etc components ready to go. If anyone knows of such a kit, let me know - would be handy for side projects where the design side of things isn't as important and you just want to smash a UI together.
