      "The latest versions of the software make greater use of computers' graphics processors, speeding up most processes and allowing complex tasks to run in the background without slowing the user experience."

          Kind of.  Most Develop sliders will have a drastically higher frame rate when dragging on compatible GPU-enabled systems.  Other stuff will not see a performance increase.

            Do you know what "compatible GPU-enabled systems" are?

              Most modern GPU enabled computers, including many Intel embedded GPUs from the last few years.

                Lightroom CC GPU FAQ says "Graphics cards produced in the last 2-3 years that meet the minimum system requirements above should work fine."  The minimum system requirements are

                • 64-bit OS versions only
                • OpenGL 3.3 and later
                • Mac OS 10.9 and later
                • Windows 7 and later

                  FYI- there may be a problem in the release. I have an AMD Radeon HD 5450 card which meets all the requirements but LR CC does not use it. It is "disabled due to errors". The card has 1024MB of RAM, supports Open GL 4.4, is on Windows 8.1 Pro. I have updated the drivers, restarted, etc. Hopefully, Adobe will iron out the hardware compatibility issues shortly.

                    I am experiencing the same thing on a similar system. AMD Radeon HD 6450 card. 1024MB of RAM, OpenGL 4.4 support. Windows 8.1 Pro latest drivers and everything. I can't find a way to get it to work.

                      I have the same problem with an Intel HD 4400 with current drivers. Am running OpenGL4.2 and Lightroom 6 says
