Camera Raw ”Enhance Details” can't use external GPU.

Why and will it be fixed?

Thank you.

This is apparently an issue with MacOS, not Lightroom or Camera Raw. So only Apple could answer that.

Ok. If it’s Mac OS, why do other Photoshop functions etc (that uses GPU for processing) use the selected eGPU? What I can find it’s only Enhance Details that don’t work. Just so I do understand. Thank you.

Enhance Details uses some special routines (Core ML API of Mac OS). The bug is in those routines, and so it does not affect other things in ACR.
