I don't use a Mac but I find on windows Photoshop make little use of the GPU and just uses it for a few features like liqufy and smart sharpen and smart plur when you enable OpenCL sypport. What are you doing in Photoshop the you feel it using the GPU.

All I've done so far is doing Dodge and Burn on 2 separate Layers using the d&b tool. that's it and it drives me crazy.
Yeah, as you can see I've been there and postet a comment right before I opened this Thread
But Thanks for your effort! =)
...from the above mentioned stuff I only do minimal liquify normally - but haven't done any of that so far (so that can't be the problem I assume?)
Oh and it also freaks totally out when I'm using a tiny little bit of the healing brush :/
No reaction from the Adobe-Team here? :/
This is getting quite annoying right now - especially if you've paid such a huge amount of money for a "quality product" which then seems to not work properly... :/
Thanks, didn't knew it was only User-to-User, nevertheless the FAQ and forumsearch didn't provide any helpful suggestions.
Well, some Adobe staff drop by occasionally as volunteers, on their own time and dime.
