I am running a brand spanking new rig.
Windows 7 pro
intel i7-3930k cpu 3.2ghz
32 gig ram
Geforce GTX 680 with updated drivers
Adobe Photoshop CS6 keeps crashing. I do not think it supports this GPU, which is a major bummer. Do i need to swap GPUs to a 500 series? Will this be fixed?
1. It is crashing when i am pixel painting a retouch (zooming around in and out from 100-500%)
2. The Nvidia Crash report says error number 3, but only when i switched the GPU handling to normal in preferences of CS6. While my CS6 GPU preferences were enabled in advanced mode the system would completely crash and there were a series of randomly scattered color blocks on the screen that looked vaguely like a bunch of little 2 d helixes
3. There were no old drivers to get rid of, this is a brand new rig, and I made sure to follow the instructions on the new drivers as well as got the most recent version, which I just double checked
OK, so it's something with the GPU card or the drivers. But I haven't heard that many problems with the current NVidia drivers. (you did update from NVidia and not Microsoft, right?)
If it's a brand new machine, it could still be the card.
Have you been using other applications that push the GPU relatively hard?
My drivers are from Nvidia and are current.
I just had a crash with the helixes again in Photoshop cs6 when the GPU was set to basic. I will now try to pixel paint with the GPU set to off, and see if it is stable.
I have been running premiere pro cs6 with multiple stacked effects on live view without a problem so far
this rig is only 2 days old so I havent really pushed it yet. WIll install Max Payne3 after i test the no GPU enabled preference in Photoshop cs6
So after a thourough investigation I found that I had installed Invidia's 6 series driver, which is incorrect for my GPU. What I needed was the 600 series driver. Thanks for helping sort out the rookie mistake.
