Hi, all. I have visited the PSE system requirements page at Adobe and do not see any reference to graphics cards for PSE 2022. Husband is shopping for a new laptop that will use PSE to do simple edits and use Camera Raw.
Would an i7 or Ryzen 7 processor w/16GB of RAM and no (or shared) graphics card be sufficient for quick, smooth edits? He is currently using PSE 7 ( I know... !!) on an old i5 laptop with 8 GB of RAM and everything runs fine.
PC only - he is not interested in a Mac.
Thanks for input!
Elements does not make a lot of use of the GPU except for a limited number of functions. Here is what the Elements 2022 preferences dialog says:
So, even an integrated GPU should be sufficient for most editing. For raw editing, it seems to be an open question about whether a better GPU will improve some of the functions.
Of course, I don't want to get into a marital dispute about how much hubby should spend on his new computer. 😁
Ha ha on budget. 🙂 I appreciate the info from the dialog box! That helps a lot.
