Considerations for Graphics Processor (GPU)-accelerated features

Minimum system requirements

  • 64-bit OS versions only
  • OpenGL 3.3 and later

Note:

For frequently-asked questions about GPU and related troubleshooting information, see Adobe Camera Raw graphics processor (GPU) FAQ and troubleshooting.

Notes:

  • Camera Raw currently doesn't take advantage of more than one graphics processor. Using two video adapters does not enhance performance.
  • Graphics processors running under virtual machines are not tested or supported.
  • A test is run on the video adapter the first time you open Camera Raw. If the test fails, the video adapter is disabled even if the video adapter meets the minimum requirements. Try these troubleshooting steps to try to resolve the error. Some video adapters, despite meeting the minimum requirements, may never be compatible with Camera Raw for graphics acceleration.
