I have the exact same question with the addition of Illustrator CC.
Is the Intel Iris Pro Graphics 580 in the "Intel NUC NUC6i7KYK Skull Canyon" fully compatible
with both Photoshop CC 2015 and Illustrator CC 2015?
I just found a note in Adobe for suggested system requirements and graphics cards
- 1 GB of VRAM (Video RAM, or RAM on the video adapter). 2 GB of dedicated VRAM is suggested for large, high-resolution (such as 4K and 5K) monitors.
- OpenGL 3.3. If you're not sure if OpenGL 3.3 is fully supported by your card, contact the manufacturer.
- For AMD cards, consider using the Radeon R9 series of cards, such as the R9 270 thru 290.
- For NVIDIA cards, consider using a card from the GeForce GTX 760+ line (760, 770, 780, ...) or from the GeForce GTX 900 series
- For Intel cards, Intel HD Graphics 4400+, 5000+, 510+, P530, Iris Pro Graphics 5200, 6100+, P6300, P580 or later are required
I assume that means all functions of PS will work however I also assume a dedicated graphics card will be a little quicker depending on model of course....Good enough for me to buy the Skull Canyon I think
Check this video at 02:40
"The user can select how much system memory is allocated for the graphics processor".
Does anybody know if this is equal to "extending" the VRAM? Say that I alllocate 2GB
system RAM to the Intel Iris Pro Graphics 580. Does the Intel Iris Pro Graphics 580
now have 2GB dedicated VRAM?
Just as lucasc1762341 writes, the Adobe system requirements lists the P580 (not the 580 that the Scull Canyon holds) which can be found in some high-end Xeon quad core CPUs. Check these two links:
So the question is if the 580 is on Adobes system requirements?
I'm thinking (and hoping) that the 580 is OK for Photoshop and Illustrator.
I'm probably going to buy a Scull Canyon and just cross my fingers that
everything works good but it would be good to see the 580 on the system
requiremetns page. I don't know if the 580 came after the P580. If it did, it
should be ok, as Adobe states "P580 or later are required".
Do Adobe staff ever post here? How do I contact customer service? It always beings me back to forums.
I'd like to know if the iris pro 580 is supported or not...haha why is this so hard?!
There you will also find this information:
Adobe tested laptop and desktop versions of the following cards. Be sure to download the latest driver for your specific model (laptop and desktop versions have slightly different names.)

- Intel Iris Pro Graphics: P5200, P6300, P580
Thanks Stefan, I can't find where to contact Adobe directly though...is this all there is?
Anyway the 580 and P580 are listed as different integrated graphics cards at intel. So while they may be similar I don't know if there are differences that make an impact on PS use. The P580 only comes in high-end professional Xeon chips and professional servers apparently.
