I have no idea what is wrong here but this version of PS its horribly slow.

Here is a video i just captured about this issue:

http://cl.ly/2W0P381A1G1y/60fps-PSCC2015-slow.mp4

There is not difference with GPU enabled, there is no difference if I have or not rules enabled. I never experienced something like with with CC 2014.

MacPro with 12 cores and 64GB RAM

Its there something I could do to fix this?

We have a suggestion we'd like affected people to try out.

If you have slow menus or laggy commands, can you try turning OFF font preview (Type>Font Preview Size = None)?

(If it was already off, and you still have slow menus or laggy commands, we'd like to know that as well.)

Thanks.

Turn off/hide the rulers, then try again.

While I appreciate the quick response, it makes no difference.

I already tried with rules off and rules on, sure, with rules off it makes the scrolling and dragging smoother, but it wont fix the overall lag Im experiencing.

Thanks Chris, I first tried turning off the font previews which seemed better but actually it did nothing, especially when I move around a photo at 1:1 holding spacebar it was sticking and sluggish and horrible to use.

Turning off Rulers actually did the trick. Hope there is a fix for this soon.

I am now running on 2017.1.1 and recently upgraded my graphics card to a GeForce GTX1060 and Photoshop seems to be running quite smooth for the first time a long time. MacOS Sierra 10.12.5

Same here on PC and slow with 24 Cores, 96GB RAM on Nvidia Quardo 6000 with RAID 0 array for scratch disk.

Photoshop CC 2014 runs acceptably fast but Photoshop CC 2015 - Sloooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

I use the rulers so left them turned on just like I did in PS CC 2014.  Is disabling rulers a new feature in 2015 that's designed to kill the app?

Looking at resources, with plenty of free memory available, it appears PS CC 2015 doesn't seem to want to use memory but is instead sending a lot of R/W action to disk.

New isn't always the best...rulers shouldn't be a deal breaker in CC.

Also what's the point in having RAM if PS relies to much on R/W action, that seems backward to me.....I'm not upgrading for now as I need a system that is stable for professional work. I have commissions to finish.
