Man, this came to a extent that im really asking myself at this point how much can we suffer. 

I am having the worst software experiences i could in the last couple updates from Adobe. Photoshop right now is really really bad, very slow no matter how fast is your machines. 

 

I manly work using photoshop on 2 machines: 

Mackbook pro 16 - i9, 32gb, 5500 8gb - Its basically laggy and photoshop will randomly use GPU depending on each startup. I really need luck to even get 100% performance.... try closing and opening until it work ? its insane at this point how much bug there is using MacOS. 

Windows machine - I9, 32gb, RTX2080.. well, this machines was better but last couple weeks all goes south. I now have the whole list of bugs i did on mac. Buggy panning, zooming performance, weird bug with video on canvas, very bad performance on artboards and the list goes on. 

 

I tried and asked around, looks like its happing to everybody, not with me or my machines. I even tried installing this on a different machine and the same problems are instant there. ITs not machine related  but software specific bugs for sure. 

 

I hope there is a clear fix, i cant work with a paid software that will work randomly. 

 

 

Anyone else experiencing such bad performance ?
