Graphics card requirements: PSE 2022

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.  😁
