Hi

Try enabling this option in preferences and restarting Photoshop to see if it helps

Ged_Traynor has part of the correct solution. If you're still having slight issues, simply hit "Ctrl+R" in Photoshop to deactivate the Rulers. Activate them only when you need them. The combination of these suggestions should fix the zoom lag. Photoshop suffers from the integration of the ruler function with the zoom feature and using GPU acceleration to assist with this. I don't know why GPU acceleration is needed for this. Simple is sometimes better, Adobe.
