Hi, I'm considering buying a PC specifically for Photoshop and Lightroom that has a NVIDIA Geforce RTX 3060 GPU. I keep seeing that there are problems with this GPU causing crashes. Should I avoid buying this computer by or has this been resolved?

I am not aware of problem with RTX 3060, thats good card for Photoshop. I will tag @D Fosse because I think he is running system with RTX 3060, he is also reliable source to ask for advice.

 

In addition, I will assume you are talking about Desktop PC. In case you are looking for laptop please take a look at this chart PassMark Software - Video Card Benchmarks - GPU Compute Video Cards where its clear that laptop RTX 3070 and RTX 3070Ti falls behind desktop RTX 3060. Something to bear in mind, desktop GPU is better and stronger in performance for numerous of reasons like cooling system which is very limited in tiny laptops.

Hvala, Bojan, I'm looking at a desktop. My old laptop isn't powerful enough for what I need to do and I figure you get more bang for your buck when you're not paying to shrink everything down to fit into a laptop, so I'm looking at a Lenovo gaming desktop that comes with an RTX 3060 installed.

Thanks, Bojan - yes I have one machine with an RTX3060, and it's been absolutely rock solid. Performance-wise it's plenty good enough for Photoshop.

 

Based on that positive experience, I just got an RTX 4060 Ti for my other (work) machine. I only installed that a week ago, but I've put the machine to heavy work on big files in that week, and it appears to be just as solid. I do notice that it's about 20% faster than the 3060 on things like Denoise.

@Thomas E32428423h1j7 the RTX 3060 is a good choice, make sure to install the Studio version of the driver as recommended by Adobe and not the Game Ready one

Thank you Ged, that's good to know, nothing more frustrating than trying to sleuth out a problem like having the wrong driver installed.

The PC will more than likely come with the Game Ready driver installed, just download the latest from the Nvidia site and when installing , do a custom > advanced install, deselect the Geforce Experience option and then put a check mark in perform clean install, this will remove the current driver and make sure you're starting off with a clean slate.

I have been using a Geforce RTX 3060 with Photoshop (very intensive, I'm a pro photographer) for well over 1 year now with no problems whatsoever. I pack 64gb of ram, which I will be updating to 128gb in the next day or so. Absolutely stable and light years ahead of my old system with a Geforce GTX 2070.

I have the exact same specs and I still can't get the newest version of Photoshop to behave with this GPU. Could you share with me your Performance & Technology Previews settings?
