Can Photoshop run on integrated graphics?
You can use Photoshop with modern integrated graphics, but you will need at least 16 GBs of RAM to operate Photoshop efficiently as integrated graphics do not have their own dedicated RAM so they will use the system RAM, which in turn reduces the amount of RAM available to Photoshop.
Can Photoshop run without graphics card?
The answer is yes! You can operate Photoshop without a good graphics card, but to do so would cause you to compromise the program’s efficiency and miss out on using lots of its functions.
Will a graphics card speed up Photoshop?
Is onboard graphics good enough for Photoshop? Photoshop can run with onboard graphics, but be aware that even a low-end GPU will be nearly twice as fast for GPU-accelerated tasks.

What graphics card do I need for Photoshop CC?

Can I run Photoshop on 2GB RAM?
Photoshop can use as much as 2GB of RAM when running on a 32-bit system. However, if you have 2GB of RAM installed, you won’t want Photoshop to use all of it. Otherwise, you won’t have any RAM left for the system, causing it to use the virtual memory on disk, which is much slower.
