emmet It is an interesting experiment to try old Windows, just to see if modern Windows is a hidden cause for you. As a solution it is not very practical now for a number of reasons, for example now Chromium dropped support for 7/8. Windows 10 version 1507 is the baseline now to have Chromium browser updates, and along with 1511, is the final “safe” version of Windows (although some find Windows 7 with DWM disabled fills that role). Still many modern applications with not run, and forget about it with new hardware. I am trying to move on myself and use modern Windows 10/11, and that is going OK for me. I guess I always bring it up because I don’t want OS-related strain as a subject of discussion to be forgotten.
Good luck with the Arc card. I am looking forward to your report.
karut My Intel Arc A770 LE gave me eyestrain on Linux, but not on Windows. Sorry to hear it did not work out for you.
