If you're a nvidia gsync user and experiencing mouse stuttering in Ps (and all Adobe apps), try turning off gsync to see if that resolves the issue. 
Basically what happens is that any activity in an Adobe app will result in 2-3 seconds of micro-cursor stuttering (looks like frame rate dropping) and the occasional 3-4 seconds of cursor freeze. Disabling gsync fixes the issue. This behavior appears only in Adobe apps and none other.

could be. I mention the gsync issue in that thread and it's also what inspired me to create this one =)
i did a little more testing yesterday and the issue happens when you enable the option for Fullscreen and Windowed apps, but not when Fullscreen only.
PS-49914 is the bug and i've asked around to see if anyone has a gsync machine they can test with, but doesn't seem like there is one... maybe Noel?
