    Is CS6 generally slower than 5?

    arlighet Level 1

      I'm having slow issues with photoshop 6.  I'm a professional photoshop user since 1993, work on 10-15gb files with 100+ layers.  I use a MacPro 2x2.26ghz quad core intel xeon.   32GB Ram.  Just did a clean install of lion onto an 500gb SSD hard drive.  All my files are SATA connected with a 6TB Raid 0.   Nothing except for photoshop, bridge and Capture one is installed on this machine.  I experience delays on all fronts.  even trying to silhouette a 279mb 2 layer file is painfully slow today.   



      I've disabled graphics processor

      Memory usage is set to 70% (21772mb)

      cache levels 4

      cache tile size 1024

      automatically save recovery information every 10 minutes (how much does this slow the system down?


      For ultimate performance, am I better of going back to CS5?
