I have gone through the entire Troubleshooting list for PS. Still no change in the lag of brushes across all of my computers. Is anyone else having this problem? I've even tried rolling back to CS2 for the same results. I am just baffled.
Well, after a completely unhelpful tech support call, I've managed to fix the issue myself by testing the attributes of each lagging brush one by one. As far as I can tell, nearly all the troublesome brushes share the attribute of having their Spacing set to 1%. Changing the Spacing setting to a higher percentage helped the lag immensely.
I've uploaded a video illustrating my lag problem as well as the solution. I hope it helps anyone else out there having this same issue:
Last night I tried installing Photoshop CC on a completely fresh install of the Mac OS (Lion) on a Macbook that's a tier up from the one listed in the top of this thread. It still had the same exact issue, so I do not believe google play or pandora or tablet drivers or anything of that sort is the issue, since the setup was bare of any extraneous programs.
The Spacing solution seems to work across systems so far, so hopefully that solution remains valid for others who might be having this issue.
I have the same problem. Just upgraded to CC from CS6 and getting huge lag when using bristle brushes, airbrushes & erodable tips (anything outside of basic brushes.)
I had the same problem in CS6, but disabling "Use Graphics Processor" in the Performance Prefs fixed it - not so with CC.
I still have CS6 installed, and the lag is non-existent.
I, too, am experiencing this lag. I adjusted the spacing and that seems to clear up the problem.
I just recently built this computer and it should be screaming fast.
Intel i7 4770k
AMD Firepro W7000

Thanks for posting the video. I hope Adobe takes a look at this issue.
Same here, I've been happiily running Photoshop CS5 on my MacBook Pro without problems. Yesterday I've installed CC and the lag is so bad I can't actually use this program anymore for my panting needs. CS5 is lilghtning fast.
I'm using Mountain Lion 10.8.4, Intel Core i7 dual core @2.8 GHz with 8GB of RAM, with Intel HD Graphics 3000 512MB.
I'm happy to say that my CS5 has not been affected, so that's still working well.
This is a shocking bug, and seeing that I'm not the only one I'll stick with CS5 - and NO CLOUD SUBSCRIPTION nonsense.
I have some new info on the issueI thought I'd share with you.
First of all, I've installed Photoshop CC on my SurfacePro (Windows 8) and do not have the lag issue there. It's very similar hardware to my MacBook Pro. So the issue must have something to do with my MacBook.
After a lot of tinkering I discovered that it is my 27" Thunderbolt Display that is causing the brush lag. When I unplug it and only use my built in 13" screen the brush lag is gone. Aha!
I tried every available option in the Performance section but nothing helped. Again, Photoshop CS5 with attached Thunderbolt Display doesn't have a brush lag issue.
I'd be interested to know everyone else's setup who is experiencing this problem.
I've been having the same problem after installing cc 2015. My machine has an 8 core AMD processor, 16 GB of RAM and a 1GB Radeon HD 7700. One instance of photoshop should be causing the same lag as Premiere, After Effects and Photoshop did with CC 2014 with all programs fully loaded.
I hope that the next update deals with this.
I have the same problem with my brushes some are not regonize or just doesn't work properly after udapte the CC
