Somthing is badly wrong with Photoshop 2020. Its so slow its absolutely impossible to work with. Simple tasks in small files almost freezes the program after a few minutes of work. Had to install older version to continue. Any other solution?

I see you have tagged "Mac". On Windows 10 21.0.1 runs quickly. Hope they sort out the Mac issues soon.

I am experiencing the same. I have never had issues with Photoshop before. 
I am checking Adobe daily for an update and/or solution. 

Adobe, please move quickly with a resolution.

I'm having the same problem. It took 8 minutes to do something as simple as switch to the Text tool. It's unusable this way. The 2019 version had its slow moments, but this is impossible to work with.

I have the same issue. Yes Photoshop is becomming more laggy year by year. It must not slow down on most used commands for most people. Try to rebuild a newer version of this App with another team. Focus on performance and stability more.

I had the same performance issues that others have described. What worked for me was to DISABLE "Grid" in View > Show: Grid (Uncheck). Afterward, close the Adobe Photoshop application and load up your PSD/image file and hopefully, you won't notice any more performance issues.
