High Sierra (macOS 10.13) GPU rendering issues with RGB document - Intel Graphics

Illustrator 21.1.0 has issues with GPU rendering in the latest High Sierra public betas:

Paths will appear jagged and generally do not display correctly.

Altering the zoom level affects these artefacts.

Switching off GPU rendering altogether fixes the issue but this way, performance is obviously affected.

Additional Note: Works correctly in CMYK document.

    This is the same on my windows 10 machine with Kaby Lake CPU with intel graphics

    Still no update for High Sierra. It seems the time has come to unsubscribe the Creative Cloud. Adobe promised fast updates – but nothing happens.

    As you can see, what it should look like, and what it actually looks like. Turning on GPU Performance gives this sort of an issue, and turning it off affects the speed and productivity a lot. Scrolling and zooming becomes very slow.

    My elements are glitching out when I zoom in & out of my workspace. Running macOS High Sierra 10.13

    I'm having the same issue since I upgraded to High Sierra. The rendering is really poor quality.

  • Nicole Brown commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I recently purchased the new 2017 MacBook Pro (with touch bar). One of the first things I did was download all of the CC apps that I use on a daily basis.

    Anytime I work in Illustrator with GPU Performance turned on, Illustrator has a huge lag and takes forever when I do basic tasks (zooming in/out, using any of the tools, etc.). Turning off GPU Performance fixes this issue, but that seems counter productive since this is a brand new computer.

    My previous Mac (late 2011) ran Illustrator CC 2017 perfectly fine with GPU Performance turned on.

    Not sure what causes this but hopefully there will be a solution soon.

    Illustrator is very slow since High Sierra update. I mean...VERY!

    When selecting object they move around VERY slow, leaving glitches of the object on my artboard. When selecting an object it takes a second for the handler/segments/paths to appear.

    // macOS High Sierra
    // 10.13
    // Mac Pro (late 2013)
    // 3,5 GHz 6-core Intel Xeon E5
    // 32GB 1866 MHz DDR3
    // AMD FirePro D500 3 GB

    I unchecked the GPU settings... still awfully slow.

    The file is not rendering details of a vector properly when zoomed in at a certain level

    I can understand that beta versions might not be officially supported. However, illustrator only offers this site as a feedback channel and even if the issue is indeed related to macOS, it clearly affects your product so I would be careful not to dismiss it in the way you are seemingly doing. I thing your d gelopen should be made aware of this happening.
