i have had this error for since over a couple of months and i have been udated my graphics card to the latest beta versions.
this is what my graphics procces settings showhttp://img838.imageshack.us/img838/1713/05c9aaae339f4426b9de450.png
- AMD radion hd 6000 series
it only crashes when i switch tools.
Since the Catalyst 13.4 release (not beta) seems perfectly stable with Photoshop, I suggest removing the beta driver version (with the assistance of the Catalyst Un-install Utility) and installing the 13.4 release.
There is a fix that worked for me, which I imagine is not recommended by Adobe. I am using Photoshop CC with Windows 8.1 Pro.
Hope that helps!
Thanks for the procedure, Pierster.
Just keep in mind that changing files in the Photoshop installation area may result in a failure of the updater the next time a Photoshop update is available.
I am seeing this error notice on first launch of Photoshop CC on Mac OS X. I am running 10.9.1 on a machine which was not built by Apple, or in other words, a Hackintosh or CustoMac, which contains an NVidia GTX 670 and an AMD Radeon R9 270X. Both of my monitors are connected to the GTX 670. Some OpenCL processing is currently running on the R9 270X, which appears to the running application as AMD Radeon HD - FirePro D300 Compute Engine.
The following is the output of the sniffer tool located inside the app bundle:
2014-01-03 18:16:18.237 sniffer[40830:507] invalid display
Exception caught and ignored.
2014-01-03 18:16:18.238 sniffer[40830:507] invalid display
Exception caught and ignored.
Both cards are verified to fully support 3D rendering as well as OpenCL computation. Of course, the Radeon card is much more efficient at number crunching, while the GeForce gains about 35% over the Radeon in heavy 3D performance, so unless Photoshop needs double precision shaders, it should probably be a faster choice for OpenGL processing.
Well, the video drivers are returning errors - and since they fail on even basic queries, Photoshop cannot use the cards. Disabling the sniffer may make them work... until they crash or give other errors. The MacOS drivers just don't seem to be happy with your system or cards.
Also, Apple and Windows drivers usually are not happy with mixed brands (and sometimes models) of video cards.
I already have both of my monitors connected to the GTX 670, which happens to be stronger at general OpenGL performance than the Radeon. In fact, I've already come to learn from experience that OS X does not really like having monitors distributed across multiple video cards, as it attempts to simultaneously render all windows on all cards with monitors attached, in an attempt at synchronization. This is already a mess with AMD video and Intel integrated, which is a required setup to get the Chameleon or Chimera boot loaders to even start up with an AMD Radeon 7xxx series card, as their VGA BIOS is too large for that boot loader. This is not a common Apple problem, but a problem for people who build their own machines from base components and use third party installers and boot loaders to make the whole thing run. I had a measure of success booting with just the AMD card using the Clover boot loader, but it gets stuck at gray screens on all my monitors with a spinning beach ball cursor. Again, not your problem.
What I would like is for this sniffer tool to emit some more helpful error messages than just a general failure and a source code line number where it fails. Although, it's two numbers, so perhaps it is a line number and an error number? Or is it something else entirely?
True, but the R9 270X gets 26.5 fps in Heaven 4.0 at Extreme, while the GTX 670 gets 35 fps exactly. On the other hand, the R9 270X is about 3.5x as fast at crunching numbers compared to the GTX 670.
I won't worry too much that it doesn't work with Photoshop, as I haven't found much of any use for Photoshop's OpenGL or OpenCL capability yet, what with being a totally casual user.
