Well, it has the same reason as to why rendering some video in an editing app takes a long time on some and not so long on some. You might have wondered why you can’t play PUBG in the highest settings as well. Your processor is to blame. Different processors have
different CPU and GPU capabilities. GPU decides what graphics does your processor support. Let’s see the naming strategy of processors from different brands.
