    NVIDEA GPUs and OpenCL

      It might be my imagination, but it seems to me that my GTX970 wants to install yet another driver update two or three times a month.  My thinking was that this is to integrate newly released games, but what annoys me is that it is a complete lottery as to whether OpenCL is available in Photoshop > Preferences > Performance > Advanced.   I tried to use the Oil Paint filter today, and was told it was unavailable, and low and behold, Open CL was grey out again.  I expect Perspective Warp would have been similarly affected.   It turned out there was a new driver available (381.65) and installing that re-enabled OpenCL, but that all took a good twenty minutes.  Grrrr...  

       

      So I have now turned off GPU driver update notification, and I'll be sticking with the current driver unless absolutely forced to change it.

      Rant over.
