I have a 2019 MacBook Pro with Radeon Pro 560X 4 GB (and Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB)


Yesterday, Lightroom was showing "Auto" under the performance tab for 'Use graphics processor'.

Today, it is disabled (now connected to my LG 5K display).

I have disabled auto graphics switching in macOS.

I have removed Lightroom and its preferences. Reinstalled. No change.

Adobe support says that my graphics card is 'disabled' and to contact Apple.


When viewing the 'system info' from Lightroom, the graphics card shows as Unknown.

Can anyone help?
