The latest update outdid itself. Photoshop works like [removed by moderator], everything is laggy, brushes are laggy (even the basic circle), and files that were light-speed dashing several years ago on a laptop with GTX 760 and I7 and 8gb ram, now are lagging RTX 2080 and I9 and 32 gb ram.

Screen freezes almost every single time when I zoom and move the viewport too fast - I need to reopen the file +- 15 times per hour. Ctrl + Z // Ctrl + Alt + Z is terribly slow, to the point where sometimes I question myself if I have even pressed the shortcut. It's like every single thing is working worse and worse each update.

Turning off graphic processor is not an option, turning off second screen is not an option, so don't even mention those. Tried it - it does nothing. 
All drivers up to date.

So what about releasing new version each week, you will make one solid version that just w o r k s?

Nope, PC build, all used to work fine, and when I tested on CS6 - it works like a dream xD
Just the new updates are worse and worse - now even the object selection tool crashes the software, and you cant change the fonts with arrows, what is a major pain [removed by moderator] XD

Photoshop 2022 on Windows launch speeds for me are extremely slow. Now of course, slow is relative, but on my PC system, with a fast NVMe, 64 GB of RAM, an RTX 3080 and an i9 9900k, it takes at least 14 seconds to launch. On the other hand, on my M1 Macbook Pro, Photoshop 2022 launches in about 3 seconds.


The problem on the PC has gotten so bad I assumed I had a hardware or OS problem on my PC. I replaced the C drive with a new NVMe. I reinstalled the OS and started with a clean install of Photoshop. None of that made any difference on launch time, and now I’m frustrated every time I have to start the application. I have tried all the recommended optimizations, nothing is improving the situation, are there any known issues that are being worked?

I came here for the same reason. I have similarly specced machines (32Gb / 3070 Ti on the PC, though), and recently purchased a MBP M1 Pro for work, and the difference between the speed on my PC (excruciatingly slow and laggy) and on my MacBook Pro (3 second load, no lag) is ridiculous. I even specced updating the guts of the PC to try and speed it up, but it's clear that would be a waste of time.

It makes Adobe's email regarding another price rise this morning particularly insulting.
