AMD has announced that it has significantly improved hardware acceleration for Adobe's Photoshop Creative Cloud and Premiere Pro Creative Cloud services. The company says that the collaboration between Adobe and AMD to provide high-quality, impressive performance to creative professionals everywhere has been achieved by fully tapping into AMD compute and graphics processing leadership through cross-platform open standards like OpenCL and OpenGL.
"AMD and Adobe are working together to help provide powerful solutions that enable creative professionals to speed workflows and increase throughput, boost productivity and creativity, and fully realize their creative vision," said Neal Robison, senior director, Software Alliances at AMD. "AMD APUs and graphics coupled with Adobe Photoshop CC and Adobe Premiere Pro CC push the boundaries of what's possible and help artists of virtually all talents and disciplines make the imagined real."
At the moment, the biggest improvements can be seen in an all new "Smart Sharpen" feature and updated Blur Gallery. There is no word if the CS6 versions of Photoshop and Premiere Pro will get these updates, but I am willing to bet that they will not be seen on any version of any Creative Suite products.
