Text version of Adobe's Photoshop application will takeadvantage of video card graphics processing units (GPUs) to provide adramatic improvement in performance.
So, what can youdo with general-purpose GPU (GPGPU) acceleration in Photoshop? We sawthe presenter playing with a 2 GB, 442 megapixel image like it was a 5megapixel image on an 8-core Skulltrail system. Changes made throughimage zoom and through a new rotate canvas tool were applied almostinstantly. Another impressive feature was the import of a 3D model intoPhotoshop, adding text and paint on a 3D surface and having thatsurface directly rendered with the 3D models' reflection map.

Reported: TGDaily
These features are expected to be introduced in Adobe's next version ofCreative Suite (CS4) which is expected in October of this year. GPUacceleration has been used in many aspects of Mac OS X's Core Animationand Core Image.
