Hi,
I am wondering if it's worth to invest money for some additional GPU :?:
My current PC setup consist of I7-4770, 32GB RAM, SSD 256GB (HP EliteDesk 800 G1). I don t have dedicated GPU, so use only Intel HD4600
Last day I discovered that GPU usage is very high - mostly by ExpertSDR2 and UltraVNC server.
I think I can install graphics card like GT710, GT630, Radeon R5 430.
Any comments are welcome.

I would say there is no reason at this stage.

First - because ESDR3 is on the way. And the dev framework version used for it, has completely different graphics architecture, then it was in version used for ESDR2. For mode detailed information you may start here: www.qt.io/blog/qt-6.0-released (New graphics architecture section and links within it).

Second - any remote desktop applications (like VNC) in any OS will affect ESDR2/ESDR3 performance by slowing it down and introducing delays. If you intend to use remote desktop of any kind, perhaps you better to wait for ESDR3 to be released and only then start your tests for selection of the remote desktop, which will balance good enough for your environment and tasks. Saying "ESDR3 released" I mostly mean at least consult with Roman when full set of expected graphical changes are implemented for ESDR3 - this will give you estimated date for you own tests to start.
