April 24, 2012 by Tony DeYoung
Adobe and AMD announced that Adobe Photoshop CS6 and Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 will feature OpenCL acceleration to dramatically speed up critical imaging features and generating real-time results when editing. The new Adobe Mercury Graphics Engine within Photoshop CS6 utilizes both OpenCL and OpenGL, to accelerate new and existing features such as the new Blur Gallery that runs up to 10x as fast on the upcoming “Trinity” APU with OpenCL GPU acceleration turned on.
Tom Malloy, senior vice president and chief software architect at Adobe’s Advanced Technology Labs will deliver a keynote address at the AMD Fusion Developer Summit (AFDS) running June 11-14, 2012.
