i am testing cs6 for a while, an i am quite happy with the results.
that said i am wondering how much is going to be changed till the final release!
i found some small performance issues for me, so i was wondering if there would be any performance or GPU changes that probably gonna resolve the issues i found.
or any other changes at all? what should we expect from the final release compared to the beta?
The idea behind the public beta is to get users like yourself to test Photoshop CS6 in real world situations, so that the engineers can make any last minute bug fixes. Performance issues are one of their biggest focuses. They're trying to ensure that Photoshop CS6 runs smoothly with as many systems/graphic cards as possible. Of course, make sure your drivers are up to date is essential as well.
In terms of features, what you see is most likely what you will get in the final release. The beta is mainly to smooth out the bugs/performance quirks.
If you come across any bugs/performance issues, be sure to report them in this forum, along with a detailed report. FAQ: I found a bug. How do I write a useful bug report?
i always get the advise to update the drivers (graphics board, motherboar, etc), but i am working on mac (mac pro).
my system is always up to date. as far as i know there is no other way to update the drivers except the apple software update.
please correct me if i'm wrong?
On most Macs, driver updates are included in Software Updates, but if you're running on a Mac Pro, which allows for interchangeable cards, the drivers can be updated separately, if there are drivers available.
If you Spotlight (top right corner) "System Information", you'll see the graphics card that your system has installed. Click on Graphics/Displays on the left. It's probably either nVidia or ATI. You can check on the manufacturers website to see if there are updates available.
