When you open Photoshop, the following unsupported graphics hardware message appears. You're unable to use 3D or other functionality.
Upgrade your graphics card or operating system. The minimum amount of graphics processor VRAM supported for Photoshop is 512 MB (2 GB or greater of VRAM is recommended).
If your graphics card already has 512 MB of VRAM, but you still get this error, update your graphics driver. Updating the driver can help ensure that Photoshop can access all the available VRAM.
Photoshop can launch and operate with 256 MB of VRAM. However, 3D and other graphics processor-enhanced features aren't available for use if you have less than 512 of VRAM (2 GB or greater of VRAM is recommended).
