Re: Upgrade to latest drivers for Intel 945 Graphics Card to get Open GL

I downloaded the driver that they were talking about.  But it doesn't have the 945 listed on the chipset when I went to install it.  So I didn't install it.

Re: Upgrade to latest drivers for Intel 945 Graphics Card to get Open GL

O.k,at least you still have the updated intel driver still installed.I do not know why this is hard to get straightened out because the driver you have is listed as having OpenGL support.Hopefully you will get a reply from adobe soon,or we get it figured out  eventually.

Re: Upgrade to latest drivers for Intel 945 Graphics Card to get Open GL

I am having this same issue. I am using XP Pro SP3 with the same chipset, intel 945. I just updated the driver version from Intel's site using the method you both described above but cannot get Photoshop to recognize the change.

Also, I tried installing the optional GPU plug-in for CS4 to no avail.

Please let me know if you have found a solution.

Thank you very much.

Re: Upgrade to latest drivers for Intel 945 Graphics Card to get Open GL

ok, thank you!

By the way...I installed also the latest Intel® Chipset Device Software
9.0.0.1008 Production Version...

but it did not fix the openGL option in photoshop either...it did speed up my Harddrive though a lot.

Re: Upgrade to latest drivers for Intel 945 Graphics Card to get Open GL

I found the answer inside photoshops help site....

"Photoshop CS4 leverages the graphics display card's GPU, instead of the computer's main processor (the CPU) to speed its screen redraw. For Photoshop to access the GPU, your display card must contain a GPU that supports OpenGL and has enough RAM to support Photoshop functions--at least 128 MB of RAM--and a display driver that supports OpenGL 2.0 and Shader Model 3.0. "

The intel card only supports openGL 1.5

and has:

Vertex Shader Ver.: 0.0

Pixel Shader Ver.: 2.0

So it will not be possible to use this feature in photoshop with this chip emoticon.Sad.title
