    The specs look promising. 🙂 8K may sound impressive as part of the specs, but it’s so painful to work on 8K at the moment. 🙁

    What’s the diff between the R5 & R6?

    • tech4tea says:

      The R5 is the more advanced one, although the more affordable R6 ships with much of the same technology. So the R6 is more targeted towards the enthusiast while the R5 is more for the pros.
