CS6 - OpenCL - nVidia 560 GTX ti - Not Supported

Tags: #not #nvidia #cs6 #gtx #ti #supported #opencl #560

Once again, OpenCL appears not to be supported (remind you of bugs with CS5 anyone?) on a nVidia 560 GTX in Photoshop (x86) when the (x64) version seems to be working OK.


Is this a case of Adobe Deja Vu CS5 bugs and errors, or is there some actual reason Adobe are holding back because of technical problems with this card? It's one of THE most popular mid range cards on the market. Expected an update to fix this months back when CS6 came out.


Adobe response... nada... nothing...

    No, this is just problems with your video card driver.

    Adobe cannot fix your video card driver.


    Please contact NVidia and ask why their latest driver disabled OpenCL (sorry, mistyped OpenGL at first).

    Adobe only uses OpenCL in the 64 bit variant, no matter what the video card.  It's a design decision.


    GPU programming is done through shaders in the 32 bit variant.


    What functionality do you perceive you're missing?
