Fore refreence I upgraded my i7 6700K CPU to a new i7 12700KF which came out this month. Photoshop 2022 has been working perfect on the old CPU and only recently I got round to using Photoshop only to find it will not load images due to a crash bug on the new CPU system.
I can replicate this bug so it is definitely a bug in the 2022 version of PS currently on the Creative Cloud. I can uninstall and reinstall and still get the same issue. This bug does not exist on Photoshop 2021 having done some testing with that too.
If I launch Photoshop 2022 and open any image, the app crashes with no error. Just closes itself.
If I go to Task Manager in Windows with Photoshop open and then manually assign affinity to only the P-Cores of the 12700K then I can load any image and work on them no problems at all. This confirms to me that Photoshop 2022 has an issue where it crashes when Intel thread Director and WIndows 11 assign Photoshop threads to the CPU and as some will be rsiding in the E-Cores, it seems to fall over there.
I am continuing to use Photoshop 2021 for now until this bug can be patched in 2022!
v23.0.2 was just posted for download and contains a fix for this issue. If you're still seeing issues after updating, please let me know. Also a reminder to remove the PSUserConfig.txt file you were using as a workaround. Thanks.
