Definitely get the drivers up to date.I don't believe there's a problem with Radeon HD cards, and FWIW, I'm using a XFX AMD Radeon R9 280 with 3Gb. You're going to need a recent generation card with at least 2Gb of memory such as the AMD R9 2xx series or nvidia’s Geforce 700 or 900.

I don't think that this is the Beta version; it is the "real thing."  I have the same problem with how slow this version is, but I can't enable GPU acceleration no matter what I do.  Adobe's suggestion is to use an older version of AMD (which they usually don't recommend) or turn GPU acceleration off.  So, to get HDR as dng, I trade off speed.  I find it very aggravating how slow LR 6 is.  I deleted LR 5 thinking that might help.  I am tempted to delete LR 6 and re-install LR 5.  The inconvenience of such a slow version of LR is not worth it.

Solved the issue for my graphics card.... you have to switch the 3D openGL trip;e buffering on and now I have the graphics card as passed in Lightroom.  I switched the OpenGL Buffering on in both the 3D application settings under Gaming.      Hope this helps you all xx

ATI Radeon HD 6800 here (Windows 8.1), tried latest driver and even beta driver. The specs theoretically meet all the requirements and -while I know it's not the newer card on the block- it works 100% with all my applications and games... but it fails to be properly enabled with Lightroom CC and ACR 9. 
Thanks BrenR1958 for the fix, but it didn't work for me

Anyway, I guess I'll switch to a newer Nvidia card... I hope a Geforce GTX 750 will be enough??? (A little weird having to update your card not for shooters, not for 3d rendering, but for a 2D photography application!).

Here is what I have on my 27 inch Mac:

I find that zooming in on photos is fast but takes a good 3 or 4 seconds before it is sharp again. Overall I am positive that LightRoom CC is NOT as fast as ver 5.7.1.Hitting the F key gives me the same result. I get a loading message at the bottom of the screen..

That setting (enabling OpenGL triple buffering) does not fix the Lightroom problem with my AMD FirePro V5900 (http://www.amd.com/en-us/products/graphics/workstation/firepro-3d/5900).
I'm using the latest non-beta AMD FirePro Software Suite, version14.502.1019 (dated April 2015). The hardware and software supports OpenGL 4.3 (Download Not Complete).  My PC is running OpenGL version 6.14.10.13293.

I'm using an Eizo CX270 monitor connected to the PC's displayport. 10-bit pixel format support is enabled, and monitor resolution is 2560x1440 (60 Hz).

For me it worked out with the latest grapic driver via autodetect utility. This is not what Dell is supporting, but it works.

I posted over in a new problem report on Photoshop.com and Eric Chan himself has replied: LIGHTROOM CC - Problem with my graphics processor‌. Here's a quote:

"Eric Chan (Camera Raw Engineer) 16 minutes ago

Yes, we (Adobe) are investigating this.  Thanks for your patience.

In the meantime, it would be helpful to check if you have the latest AMD driver installed. One user (in another thread) reported that he not only had to run the driver update, but first had to completely uninstall the existing driver, and then install the latest driver (from scratch). He then tried Lightroom CC again and found that GPU feature was enabled and working correctly."
So, a confirmed issue that's been looked into. Makes me feel better anyway. Of course, any potential fix will either need an update to LR (so not going to happen quickly), or it will need AMD to get involved and issue a new driver (again, unlikely to happen imminently).

Changing the triple buffering setting does nothing here either. Overall LR does appear to be more responsive than it was before, but this could just be down to the 'fresh install' factor more than improvements to the program. Guess I'll be holding off on processing my latest photos some more and continue focusing on studying instead.

Ok back from the store, I upgraded to an nVidia card... (GTX 750, the 2 GB DDR5 model, there's a 1 GB version too), now the error is gone (and with it, 129 € are gone too ), and the name of my card is there. 
Indeed there is a faster rendering of the images, most noticeable when zooming when zooming (compared to how it was before). As for the develop settings, they were already "real time" for me in LR 5... but I must admit they are now "real time smoother", if that makes any sense. Very responsive and fluid.
I hope Adobe fixes the issue with Radeons or some fix is found. Best of luck for you all.

Same problem with Intel HD 4400 on Dell XPS 13.

When trying to update drivers from Intel website, I get an error saying that I should look for the manufacturer's drivers, aka Dell. Under Dell Update webpage, it says that I have the latest version, though it dates back to 2013.


I am now trying to force installing the Intel driver, even though it is not the approved version from Dell.

Adobe confirms that HD 4400 is supported :

  • OpenGL 3.3 and later
  • Mac OS 10.9 and later
  • Windows 7 and later

Just forced the driver update, by downloading the zip file from Intel website, unzipping it, going to device manager, selected Intel Graphic driver, Update Driver, Browse, Have Disk, Select file igdlh64.inf under Graphic folder.

It works now, graphic card is recognized. I also hope that this new driver will fix the flickering I was expericing on my Dell XPS 13.

Will now test to see if the performance improvement is noticeable or not.

GREAT performance improvement so far. Adding gradient filter is smoother, and when moving sliders, preview is instantaneous. It is like having a new PC.

That's coming from a modest laptop, i5 Intel HD 4400.

Good stuff.

Hi everyone,

My name is Eric Chan, and I work on Camera Raw and Lightroom as an engineer.

My team has been investigating the reports of GPU support being disabled in Lightroom CC and Camera Raw 9 on some Windows systems with AMD GPUs. To help figure out what's going on, I've written a small utility software that can gather some GPU information and write it into a text log file. I would greatly appreciate it if some of you would be willing to give this a try. It should only take a few minutes of your time. If you'd like to participate, please keep reading ...

Instructions:

1. The utility software is named "acr_gpu_test". You can download it (a 39 MB zip file) here:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/35081204/acr_gpu_test.exe.zip

2. Unzip the file. Inside is an executable file named "acr_gpu_test.exe".

3. Double-click acr_gpu_test.exe. A window should pop up momentarily, then go away.

4. You should now have a new file named "log.txt" in the same folder as acr_gpu_test.exe. Please email that log.txt file to me. You can use my personal email address, which is madmanchan@gmail.com.

Thanks very much.

Eric Chan
