    I've seen this reported before.

     

    It has to do with having both GPUs of a dual setup enabled.  I believe the workaround was to disable the low power GPU in the operating system so that Photoshop would only use the high powered GPU.

    With a dual-GPU setup, one will usually disable, say the Intel GPU in the system's BIOS.

     

    If one has such a setup on a desktop, in lieu of a laptop, there might be jumpers, or DIP switches on the MoBo, but I would still check the BIOS first.

     

    Good luck,

    If you are not comfortable with BIOS, you may be able to disable the lower-powered (unused) GPU from within Device Manager on your computer. The real fix is to disable it via BIOS though if it is an option.

    I honestly don't know how, specifically.  I don't have such a system.  I'm only passing along what I've read here.

    Might be best to do a web search with make of computer and ask something like "disable second video card".
