Hello,

I've encounter a problem in the new version (23), when I use my mouse and hover the different toolbars (the upper and the bars on both sides), many times the mouse cursor seems very laggy.

I use i7-9700K cpu with 2070super gpu, and 32gb ram. All drivers are updated.

Hi there,

Sorry to hear about the mouse cursor lagging. Could you please try deselecting "Use Graphics Processor" located in Photoshop's Preferences > Performance, then relaunch Photoshop and let us know if it helps?

 

Regards,
Sahil

Thanks for your reply.

I've noticed that other adobe programs sometimes have that issue, and I found the reason eventually -

Apperantly it was an issue with G-sync, when disabling G-sync thing work smoothly.

So I disable it while working on Adobe programs, and then turn G-sync back.
But I hope this issue will be addresst by Adobe, I've learned online that it's a common issue with the latest versions of adobe (started around September).

This fixed it for me.

With g-sync on, whenever the cursor enters the toolbar on the left or the panels on the right the cursor would drop to (what looks like) 5 fps for a few seconds and my screen would very slightly dim. Disabling g-sync fixes it.

For the sake of clarity, can you explain what g-sync is please?  A quick Google suggests it is to do with particular monitors, or is not related to the monitor and part of the nVidia driver?  I suspect this is goinf to affect other people, so it is good to give them as much info to work as we can.  Thanks

g-sync is a Nvidia technology that syncs the GPU and the monitor refresh rate to reduce/remove tearing. Lots of videos online that show what it does. It's particulally helpful in games, less so on the desktop.

 

So if you have a Nvidia GPU, go into the gforce experience app and find gsync and turn it off. It instantly fixed my cursor lag when moving the mouse outside of the main area of photoshop onto the tools or windows

Can confirm G-sync was the problem. As soon as I turned G-sync off everything was fine. Have had the same problem as described above. I was particularly annoyed at first when I switched to a PC I invested a lot of money in, from a Gaming Laptop. Had a dual monitor set up and usually have videos playing on my second monitor while I work. The videos on my second monitor would lag/ drop fps almost simultaneously with the dropping of fps on the main monitor. I guess gsync really is something thats better used for gaming.
