NVIDIA has been touting the potential of GPGPU for some time now and, explaining just why its GPUs are multifunctional, whilst setting the stage for broader GPU usage.

NVIDIA GPUs enable Adobe's creative masterpiece

In a press release received today from the Santa Clara, CA based company, NVIDIA has announced that it has toiled with Adobe to provide native GPU support in the company's Creative Suite 4 software.

It is claimed that utilising the power of an NVIDIA GPU, creates a faster, yet more natural way of working with images. This, by the by, doesn't sacrifice on quality or productivity though and Adobe's newest solution is the first of its kind to tap into the potential of native GPU acceleration.

Tasks such as rotation, zooming, panning, colour conversion and 3D movement are all made more efficient by the GPU, yet this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the amount of potential that can be extracted.

NVIDIA's collaboration with Adobe saw the company working with Adobe engineers to allow GPGPU functionality to find a home in the company's latest and, greatest, solution.
