On a Mac, scrolling using the Magic Mouse 2 in unusably slow!! Doesn't matter how large or small the image is, either with or without Graphic Processing switched on, it's ridiculously slow; even the smallest accidental swipe can mean 1-2 minutes spent before I'm back on track again. Have done a restore, used disk utility, zapped the PRAM etc - no change. I didn't subscribe for this!

What are the image’s pixel dimensions and but depth? 

 

What have you done about Photoshop performance?

And just to make sure: After turning off GPU usage did you restart Photoshop`

Currently, I'm working on an RGB 72dpi file, 1024x111px. At 300%+ magnification, scrolling is laggy, choppy and at even larger sizes, slow. When I've made any performance-related changes to Photoshop, in many cases, I've re-started the machine.

Did Photoshop 22.2 perform better? 

If so you could (after making sure to back-up your presets) roll back to that version. 

 

Not a great solution admittedly …

Same for me since updating to 22.3 yesterday.

Prior to that, scrolling around and zooming in has been smooth as silk (Mac Mini 2018 16GB RAM. Standard built-in GPU).

Now it's awful to work with and really quite unusable. Nothing special with image sizes either - 20MB TIFF images.

I mean, it's not as if I'm paying top dollar to keep up with the latest updates, is it? It is! Holy moly! Fixed - downgraded to 22.2 and we're buttery smooth once again. I'll check the feedback before ever upgrading an Adobe app again, I think!

I'm getting filters being all but unresponsive and that's after resetting preferences. Are we suffering from an update to accomodate Silicon Macs performance do you think?
