OS X El Capitan will Boost Adobe CC Performance Posted over 2 years ago by Simon Day - Posted in General

Great news for all you Mac users, the new OS X version which is on it's way (currently released for developers) will greatly improve the speed and performance of Adobe Creative Cloud apps.

Announced at the recent WWDC conference, Apple stated that they will add Metal API to the newest OS X, which was originally designed for iOS 8. Metal API will allow developers more direct access to GPU hardware. As a result, this should allow greater optimization for GPU-intensive apps, providing notable boosts in rendering times.

Adobe has come forward and said that they will be utilising the Metal framework for all of the Creative Cloud apps, and in testing with After Effects, they claimed impressive performance gains of roughly 8x when rendering. This is a highly significant amount and it will be interesting to see if this speed improvement becomes a reality when El Capitan is released.

Check out the following video to see a quick rundown of all the new features coming to the new OS X. Information on the Metal API can be found at the 2min 53sec mark.

We're looking forward to seeing which other apps will take advantage of this new ability to better utlise the GPU.
