Adobe has announced CS4. It is expensive and power hungry….relying GPU resources to do its magic.

The product will ship in October.

  1. Just in time for me. I bought a new Mac last week and was waiting for this. It is a little more GPU intensive but it still looks like it will work on older computers.

  2. They’re finally taking real advantage of the GPU! Now us gamers/photographers can justify that expensive video card ;)

  3. @Jason Do we know how much more it will utilize the GPU and whether it will utilize multiple GPU’s. I know CS3 utilizes the GPU (and I have setup cs3 to use it) but since I never hear the fan get any louder I am assuming it doesn’t full utilize as much as the new release.

  5. CS3 was an AWESOME release. I am really NOT impressed with the features for photographers in CS4 – especially for $200 to upgrade. I just shelled out $99 for a lightroom upgrade that IS useful. This release doesn’t warrant $200 – and I will vote by NOT upgrading. This release looks like it is more targeted for designers and medical folks. The GPU processing is nice, but I want to see some stats to see if my box will really use it. I like the spacial compression stuff, but again it is a nice to have. Adobe really should have called this a .1 release instead of all this hooplah! I think they are trying to focus on $$ and getting people to purchasing it rather than making a full encompassing release.

  7. I’m very excited about the release. It’s probably one of Adobe’s most comprehensive in years. Can’t wait to add it to the pipeline here.
