AMD Delivers Peak Performance for Key Features and Creative Workflows in Latest Photoshop(R) CC Release

Development Through Open Standards Taps High Performance AMD A-Series APU, Radeon(TM) and FirePro(TM) Graphics Processing to Get the Most of Smart Sharpen, 3D Printing, and Other New Features

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/30/14 -- AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced that it has delivered significant optimizations in the graphics processing pipeline to increase performance for powerful creative features and workflows in the newest version of Adobe® Photoshop® CC. Use of both OpenCL™ and OpenGL standards enables Adobe Photoshop CC to directly tap the compute and graphics processing capabilities of AMD FirePro™ Professional Graphics, AMD Radeon™ Graphics, and AMD A-Series APUs to unlock new levels of performance in the Smart Sharpen filter, and provide highly responsive, visually accurate experiences for the new 3D printing workflows, and transformations such as Perspective Warp.

"Compute performance is essential to effective creative workflows," said Steve Belt, corporate vice president, Strategic Alliances & Platform Enablement, AMD. "An efficient, speedy process is often the difference between successfully capturing inspiration and seeing flashes of brilliance ebb away. That is the real essence of what the AMD-Adobe collaboration achieves. Together we continually find ways to successfully tap open standards in order to deliver the highest levels of performance for the most sophisticated new tools like those unveiled today in Photoshop CC."

This new version of Photoshop CC, a key offering of Adobe Creative Cloud™, builds on the success of its predecessor, which leveraged OpenCL ™ to power the Blur Gallery. The new updated version of the Smart Sharpen feature leverages the power of OpenCL parallel processing to take direct advantage of AMD GPUs and APUs to accelerate the entire Smart Sharpen pipeline -- including the broad palette of user-controlled options for achieving perfect results such as Amount, Radius, Reduce Noise, and algorithm choice. AMD's latest graphics technology can increase application performance up to 11 times the performance of non-OpenCL implementations(1) and enables a lightning-fast editing experience, even with large images.

The latest version of Photoshop CC also brings new OpenGL pipeline support in AMD APUs and GPUs to enhance the responsiveness and display quality for new, high-value features including:

  • Perspective Warp - OpenGL performance provides virtually instant feedback for this new feature that enables users to selectively adjust the perspective of portions of an image in relation to other elements that remain untouched.
  • 3D Printing - OpenGL performance enhances the experience of working with the powerful new 3D printing capabilities in Photoshop CC by providing rapid visual feedback as 3D models are enhanced as well as accurate, WYSIWYG previews and fast mesh repair and 3D print preparation.

"We rely on OpenCL and OpenGL technologies to provide our customers superior performance and to take full advantage of all the power their hardware provides," said Pam Clark, director of product management at Adobe. "Working with AMD, we can leverage open standards to deliver the fastest and best experience for our Photoshop customers."

These new Photoshop features accelerated by AMD are just the latest developments of a long-standing collaboration that has brought dozens of hardware accelerated features to Photoshop including the Blur Gallery of effects, Puppet Warp, Liquify and many more.
