I am looking at replacing our laptop, mainly used for travel, with one that is good for CS6 applications but neither very big in screen size nor too heavy ie not a gaming laptop. For Photoshop and many other CS6 applications the Ivy Bridge systems currently being announced seems worth while waiting for.
If possible, I would like a laptop that also supports some use of Premiere Pro (limited by small screen, probably only one disc etc.). I have seen the specification of the 2012 Sony Vaio Z with built-in HD Graphics 4000. A Port Replicator / Docking Station contains the AMD Radeon HD 7670M.
Does anybody know if this card can or will in the future provide GPU/Mercury acceleration for CS6 Premiere Pro?
That's true as long as the Windows version of CS6 still lacks support for OpenCL GPU acceleration. This OpenCL GPU acceleration support may be added to a future update to CS6; however, no timetable is announced.
Welcome to the forums.
When an Adobe employee like Steve Hoeg above makes a statement that Premiere CS6 will never support this AMD board that is the end of the story as far as Premiere CS6 is concerned.
