Photoshop: Moving layer lag issue when using many layer comps

I have a 218 MB PSD file that is causing me major headaches. Any time I start up the file, dragging a single layer goes at about 2 frames per second. However, if I delete one layer or simply cut and paste a layer, the lag is fixed.

From the video:
- Deleting a hidden layer fixes the lag
- Removing one background layer fixes the lag
- Cutting and pasting any background layer onto a new layer fixes the lag...

Saving and returning to the doc causes it to lag again.

Anyone know what's going on?

Photoshop Preferences:

Other Notes:
- Happens in both 32 bit and 64 bit versions
- I have the same issue with Photoshop CC 2014.
