Hi, I use Photoshop CS6 using a GeForce GT540M Graphics card on PC running windows 7.
The other PC I use is running windows 8.1 and uses a GeForce GTX 760 (192 bit)
The latter is faster.
Hope this helps.
Thank you very much Laz 3, for the info and the fast reply

The GT520MX may not be a games blasting mega card, but it has a Gb of RAM, and I'd have thought it would be OK with CS6
You are going to be limited in what you can fit to a notebook anyway, and there is no point in throwing dollars at a faster GPU if the rest of the system is not up to it. In fact the MX is said to be 'thin and light' so there is likely to be a size problem to contend with.
Have a good read through the GPU FAQ and see if you can find a workaround.
You might be able to obviate the issue by simply updating the card driver.
GeForce 335.23 Driver
Version: 335.23 WHQL Release Date: 2014.3.10 Operating System: Windows 7 64-bit, Windows 8.1 64-bit, Windows 8 64-bit Language: English (US) File Size: 276.00 MB
I already updated the card driver, that's not the issue. The message from Photoshop is that it is not "officially compatible" (I translate from Spanish) so maybe they simply not tested it.
The NVidia cards tested by Photoshop are:
nVidia GeForce 8000, 9000, 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600 series. I dont know if that includes GT520MX.
Thank you very much Trevor Denis
There are workarounds out there if you look and are feeling brave, but for goodness sake set a System Restore point before you start, and be prepared for it to all go wrong. Make sure you are able to boot in Safe Mode to use System Restore and stuff like that. Probably best to stay clear of Registry tweaks.
You have not said what the Notebook you are using is, but research it specifally regards a GPU upgrade. I suspect your options will be very limited.
My computer is Asus
AS53SC-XV234V. operating system Windows 7, 64 Bits, IntelCore i7, 2670QM CPU 2.20 GHz. Do you know what upgrade is best with this competer that might be supported by Photoshop?
I know nothing about computer stuff as you suspect, so I don't know if I'll try System Restore.
Thanks a lot
I forgot to say, VRAM is 1696 MB.
I know nothing about Asus notebooks, and AS53SC-XV234V does not Google.
From you comment regards System Restore, you should definitely forget any idea of tweaking the Registry.
All I can suggest is try again to find your computer model number, and Google it along with video card upgrade. I really think it is a lost cause though.
Ok I'll do that. Thank you for the help
I have a Wondows 7, 64bit, Samsung RC720 with a GeForce 520M and up until I updated by Photoshop CC VERY RECENTLY this *was* supported by Adobe CC. The fact that it is no longer is of great concern - why should we have to find workarounds?
