  • Hello,

    Thank you for providing this information about the issue. When some GPU’s (and their available drivers) have security or other functionality issues, we use software to render the WebGL content. Currently, we do not plan to release a fix for this problem. Please reopen this case if you can provide new information for us to consider.

    Best Wishes,
    The MS Edge Team
