We are happy to announce the release of Photoshop 21.2.
What’s in the 21.2 update?
To update Photoshop to 21.2, click "Update" in the Creative Cloud desktop app next to Photoshop.
Already uninstalled this update.
The latest update isn't showing up on my CC desktop app - it still shows that 21.1.3 is the most recent version. Is there a delay to certain users?
There's some bugs in this new update as is always the case with Adobe, if you have an old GPU 21.2 may not detect it
My GPU is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX....is that old already?
The GTX 680mx was release in 2012, it may work, the only way to find out is to install the update and check the performance tab in preferences
If your GPU doesn't show up there, you'll need to revert back to 21.1.3
You can check for updates via the CC app
My problem was that the update to 21.2 isn't showing up as available on the Creative Cloud app dashboard online so I can't install it. Creative Cloud is telling me that the latest version available is 21.1.3, which I'm already running (but the bugs are making it really annoying). Thanks for trying to help though, I appreciate it!
Thanks Sea16, sorry the update isn't showing up for you.
Typically that means you'll want to check for updates as Ged suggests above.

I can remember threads about issues with the 600 series GPUs from a while back, but a lot of those old threads have been deleted sad to say. The bottom line is that yes, your GPU could be causing your problem. In order to make the most of newer hardware, it seems that older hardware and operating systems can become incompatible with the latest software versions.
Pete, are updates still rolled out by time zones to ease the load on servers? I remember a few years ago we could log out of the Desktop Application Manager and log back in to get the jump on that feature, but I have a feeling it doesn't work like that now.
Trevor, I'm not sure exactly how the updates are rolled out timewise/loadwise geographically. From what I can tell these days, logging out and back in is no better than choosing the "Check for Updates" option or CMD+Option (Ctrl+alt) + R to relaunch Creative Cloud desktop.
The issue with Photoshop version 21.2 not detecting older GPU's has been fixed in version 21.2.1 but there's no mention of it in the bug fixes
