100% view looks different in PS CC 2015 depending on GPU use activated or not.

With GPU on, 100% view is slightly blurry. With GPU off, 100% view is tack sharp.

I have just checked this with PS 2015.5 on an iMac Retina with OS X 10.11. However I have seen the same problem with older versions of OS X and on a Macbook Pro 13" Retina, so it seems to be a general issue of GPU usage on Retina screens.

BTW, LR 5.7 also is slightly unsharp, same as PS with GPU on - whereas LR 6 is ok. Maybe this helps to isolate the problem.

Further findings: if both image dimensions are odd numbers (like for a square image with 1001 x 1001 pixels) the 100% view is unsharp with GPU on, whereas with either x or y dimension an even number, the image is rendered fully sharp.

Any comment from Adobe side?

Thanks.
