Not really related in any way, just curious.

Q1: Does Adobe have any opinion of a particular GPU manufacture being better suited for PS over another? Meaning, if you guys at Adobe were going to build a machine from scratch, who would you put in? Thinking of getting a new GPU and am curious about Nvidia with their CUDA stuff over AMD, or any others you know of.

Q2: Can someone give me quick clarification on the two seperate Image Interpolation settings in PS? First is in Preferences > General and the second shows up in the Free Transform options. The Preferences > General default is Bicubic Automatic, the Free Transform default is Bicubic. Are these two independent of one another? Seems like they would default to the same unless they are for different purposes. Is one for Image Size only and the other for Transforming only?

It's one of those things I know I should know, but I don't.

AMD and NVidia are both good, and competitive for performance.

The general interpolation preference sets the default, and the setting for things that don't have their own setting (like image rotation).
Free Transform, Image Size, and a few other commands have their own setting which is remembered, but starts with the default.

Second question answered clearly, thanks.

First question though... upsetting vendors and such. Regardless, I guess your experience is different than what the end user's experience is generally since any inherent issues within them typically gets sorted by you before it gets to me. Fair enough.

No, they both have occasional driver issues that get to you before we have to track them down and write bug reports. But they're both also pretty good about fixing them once the problems are identified.
