When I start photoshop and check the perfomance settings, it shows intel HD Graphics Family as the gpu and in advanced settings, openCL is grayed out. Is there any way to get photoshop to use the nvidia gpu? My specs are below.
Dell XPS 15z - i7 2640m - 16gb ram
video: Nvidia GT 525m with 2gb
Windows 7 x64
Photoshop CS6 Extended
I've got all the drivers updated to the latest. I've gone into the nvidia control panel and changed the preferred graphics processor to NVIDIA and set program itself to use nvidia. Don't know what else to do.
This is silly. I've been waisting my time searching for a solution to this only to see more and more people with the same problem. This makes my decision not to purchase photoshop (or the entire CS6 for that matter) very easy. I've got a fairly decent laptop with hardware that should and supposedly is tested and able to handle Photoshop. I'm glad I decided to download a trial before opting to buy the suite. I can't find anywhere to ask a direct question to a Adobe support rep. I get no response from Adobe on the forums. They've lost a customer for sure.
Yeah, I don't see that happening. Should've stuck with a thinkpad.
I was able to get Premiere to recognize and use the card. And I've installed Photoshop CS6 x86 and it recognizes and uses the correct card. Still no luck with photoshop though.
