May I know which operating system are you using?
Try going into the AMD control panel and add Photoshop in the 3D program list the launch photoshop and check if it is detecting the GPU.
I'm operating on Windows 10.
I can't seem to find an AMD control panel, let alone any 3D program list.
The closest thing I can find is my AMD Radeon Settings tool that doesn't appear to have anything like that.
Have a look at c:\amd. There should by some *setup.exe or *install.exe in that directory structure, which should install Catalyst Control Center.
Once you open Catalyst Control Center then you'll be able to find the 3D program list, where you can add Photoshop.
Hi Snippy, sorry to borrow your thread but i'm kinda facing the same issue, though my card's from 2012 and it's an AMD HD 7800 series.
i've installed the Catalyst Control Center, went to Gaming > Add app, and added Photoshop (didn't see any other tabs for 3D).
but my CC 2017 is still unable to detect my GPU. how did you manage to resolve this issue?
When most posters get their answer, it's unlikely they will return. Snippy last logged in March 28th. That's why it's it's better in the future to post your own topic instead of adding to one that is already marked "correct."
In any case, I'll see what I can add:
Go to the "switchable graphics setting" and see if selecting "High Performance" helps. This forces Photoshop to access your AMD card. You may also have to add sniffer.exe to the list if it isn't there. That should reside in your Photoshop folder. Be sure to save the settings and restart your PC to make sure the settings take effect.
Hi gener7. sorry i'm a noob here.
i'm just seeing this on my CCC and not what your screenshot shows. i've just added photoshop to the list here too.
additionally here's my card information. is it a photoshop issue or is my card outdated? can't be the latter since it's a series in the list of supported cards last i checked.
See this thread for some ideas Photoshop CC uses integrated graphics instead of discrete GPU | Photoshop Family Customer Community and contact AMD support or forums for information on configuring your card under their CCC software.
