Hi

Instead of scaling, use the Text Size control in the options bar, Character panel, or Properties panel.

I'm sorry but this is just a weak response. I'm having issues too. I'm on top workstation, and yet I get enormous lag when transforming text. Sometimes is much faster than typing in values, and sometimes you just want to scale unproportionately.

By @pikok85

 

To scale disproportionally, you can use the vertical or horizontal scale in the Character panel.

Jesús Ramirez explains the issues with using Transform with text in Photoshop in this video:

It's not the same in Illustrator, btw. You can use Transform or the Character panel interchangeably there.

 

We are users on this forum, so if you want to report the lag while using Transform as a bug to Adobe, you can do that here: https://feedback.photoshop.com/

Thanks for the effort, you're missing the point though. Transform tool for text is unusable for me in PS. It's so laggy I can't even control it properly. It's a second long lag and I'm not exaggerating. I can't even use it like the guy in the first few seconds of the video. There's no preview and the transform tool jumps all over the place. I'm on 128 gigs RAM i9-10940X machine. It worked better in 2001 on my laptop.

In free transform mode Photoshop is quickly generating preview to speed up process and you are not seeing final image or text in your case but rather quick preview which looks pixelated. You can use type options to scale text as already suggested. There isn't option in preferences to generate highest quality preview during free transform which is not recommended for text.
