Since CSP brought the “brush shape” in its latest updates, I played more with it.
But then I noticed one more thing in comparison to Krita.
While painting, CSP will demand less hardware resources, this despite the fact that
it renders its brush strokes in realtime speed especially when the size is low(about 1-40 pixels).
I used just a simple hard round brush in both apps and decided to paint.
First, I inform you that my fan has three activity levels : low(1), mid(2) and high(3).
When I do pretty much nothing, fans are almost silent, this is the low level mode.
For most simple tasks, surfing the web, writing text, searching from windows search bar, etc, fans operate between level 1 and 2 and my CPU temp is within 60-70°C.
While painting in CSP with a hard round brush, even for a long time, temperature stays between 72-76°C and the fan stays at level 2.
While painting in Krita, CPU temp starts at around 72°C and quickly reaches 74°C and after a few minutes goes up to 85°C. The longer I paint again without stopping, the more the temperature raises, and goes past the 90°C cap if I don’t stop.
I don’t know why this is happening, but it feels like CSP is also optimized to be more efficient regarding resource consumption.
What are your thoughts on this matter ?
