    PS CS6 Extremely slow and sluggish. Brush tool delay.

    ForeKeith Level 1

      Hello everyone.


      I own a copy of Photoshop CS6.

      Switching from Photoshop CS to CS6, I have found this version to be extremely slow and I can not find a reason why it is like this. It is impossible for me to work on it.


      Problem: Slow performance, when using the brush tool there is a long delay - lag. The brush takes more than 8 seconds to catch up with my strokes.



      Software:Adobe Photoshop CS6 x64
      OS:Windows 7 x64 SP1
      CPU:AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE
      GPU:Radeon 6790 OC @ 920Mhz
      RAM:A-Data DDR3 1333Mhz CAS9 4GB (x2)
      SSD:A-Data 510 128GB SATA3
      HDD:Samsung SATA 1TB



      - Memory usage allowed upgraded to 6GB, nothing changed.

      - Default selected "Scratch Disk" is the main SSD which has over 58GB of free space, I've tried selecting the secondary HDD as well but nothing changes.

      - Disabled the "Use Graphic  Processor" square. nothing changed.

      - Disabled the "Use open CL" square in advanced Graphic Processor Settings. Nothing changed.

      - Changed power management settings in windows to "High Performance". nothing changed.

      - Disabling tablet pc service doesn't help.




      - Graphic drivers are the latest release on AMD website

      - Windows is completely updated

      - SSD Firmware is the latest available.

      - The issue happens both with mouse and tablet.

      - 1px brush and 5000px brush lag just alike in zoomed and not zoomed canvas.

      - This happens on both x64 and x86 versions of the software.


      Any help is aprecihated.

      Thank you in advance.
