I downloaded the PS CS6 beta and discovered to my joy that my nVidia GPU is not "officially supported" by PS. It's about 5 years old so it didn't really come as a surprise. The nVidia GPUs that are officially supported are:
GeForce 8000, 9000, 100, 200, 300, 400, 500 series
Quadro 400, 600, 2000, 4000 (Mac & Win), CX, 5000, 6000
I just wonder how much of a boost the GPU gives PS, how important a fast, powerful GPU is in getting the most out of PS. Has anyone here got any information/experience to share about this?
BTW I asked nVidia to advise me on this matter, indicating that I was a (very) amateur photographer. I was advised to buy one of the following: Quadro 4000, Quadro 2000, or Quadro FX 3800. I think the price of the latter is in the region of 1K€ - a little steep for me.
