There is a significant amount of untapped power to be found in even low-end discreet video cards when they’re simply drawing 2D user interfaces, and Adobe plans to put that power to work in their next version of Photoshop, which is internally being referred to by the code-name "Stonehenge". Digital media enthusiasts are more likely to know it by the title Photoshop Next when it eventually ships, hopefully before the end of the year.
The GPU is arguably stronger than the CPU here, so it makes sense. My dad uses photoshop with his GeForce 4 MX 440 (basically a GeForce 2) and it works fine with his Pentium IV. I wonder, however, if his GPU is too weak to take advantage of this new Photoshop.
