External GPU support for MacOS native app

  1. Figma doesn’t seem to utilise my GPU. For really large files this is a problem. When using figma on my external 4K monitor the workload stays on the internal graphics card on the Mac.

I’m running a razor external GPU with Radeon card alongside my MacBook Pro 2019 I7 … I’ve tried everything and it runs dog slow. I’ve even tried running Windows on my Mac to get the graphics card working

Recommendation from Figma support was to ‘reduce the file size’ which is really not helpful.

Does anyone else experience this?
