Hi there.

 

I am frog boiled in hot water.

 

What the heck?

I just used Affinity Photo and EVERY SINGLE THING is a few times faster.

 

Zooming, scaling, moving, switching layers... basic operations in photoshop work with like 1-5fps while in Affinity I have 30-60.

 

Win 10, GF 1070, 32GB DDR4, Ryzen 5 1600x.

I'm not sure what scrolling through the preferences was going to prove - aside from your scratch disk space being very low.

 

Are you using a GSync monitor - if so go to NVidia's settings and disable GSync for Photoshop.

Any reason why you are not using the latest version of Photoshop (22.4.2) ?

What driver version are you using for your video card?

Thanks for the reply.

 

Prove nothing. Showing in case someone may pick up some wrong setting.

Like the low scatch disk space. Thanks

 

I don't have G-Sync.
I don't run updates in the middle of a project. They often mess up something and cause delays.
I will move to 22.4.2 in a few weeks.

Cheers,
DS
