Photoshop CS6 selection, shape, and text is causing colored artifacts on screen

The Photoshop CS6 (13.0.4) selection, text, and shape tool causes colored artifacts on screen. I'm running on a retina Macbook Pro updated to the latest ML release. I have disabled GPU acceleration. I have also tried starting Photoshop with no plugins but this does not help.

 

I have created a video which shows the phenomena

    If you've disabled the GPU and restarted Photoshop, and still have artifacts -- then you may have a very serious video card or RAM problem in your system.

     

    Your video shows a GPU or video driver problem.

    Have you updated your video card driver from the GPU maker's website?

    Hmm, it's still a video driver problem (and 10.8 has a bunch) - but if enabling the GPU works, then stick with that.

    VERY interesting effect!

     

    Thanks for the follow-up.  That's the first I've seen/heard that a color profile could cause such strange problems!

     

    If you're willing to try something, could you please try this:

     

    Reinstate the bad profile and see if the problem comes back with the GPU enabled, but using the "Basic" setting in the Advanced GPU Options.  You'll have to restart Photoshop after making the change to the setting and before testing.

     

    I ask because with GPU off or GPU on and in Basic mode, color-management is done in the CPU, while in "Normal" or "Advanced" GPU modes the color-management is done in the GPU.

     

    If it's difficult to reproduce the original problem don't bother, I'm just curious.

     

    There are several known problems with the color-management logic in the GPU, but this is the first I'd heard of one in the CPU.
