    OpenGL 2.0 and Shader Model 3.0

    milamad Community Member

      After buying Photoshop CS6 Extended due to it's amazing 3D options I realized my videocard sucked because it is a CSU and not a GPU as required.

      So I looked up what the requirements are to enable the GPU options and it stated that it requires a OpenGL 2.0 and Shader Model 3.0.


      I have been searching for a videocard that matches exactly that without any result (I live in a country the size of a peanut that doesn't sell a 2.0 and a 3.0).

      But I did find shader models of 5.0 and OpenGL 4.1 and I wanted to know if that is acceptable too.


      Are the OpenGL 2.0 and Shader Model 3.0 the minimum requirements and can I go higher?

      Or will Photoshop Extended not enable that GPU option if I do go above the requested OpenGL 2.0 and Shader Model 3.0???
