Check out the attached image and this PSD:

I'm getting this on any group larger than the mysterious grid on any PSD. Including new documents and really old documents.

This looks related to the tile size. I'll go ahead and log it as a bug. But if you're looking to minimize this in the meantime, you can try increasing the Cache Tile Size setting inside the Performance section of the Preferences. I was able to get this problem to go away by increasing the tile size to 1028K and restarting Photoshop.

Whether or not this is feasible depends on the performance of your particular machine.

Yep. Increasing the tile size seems to've alleviated the issue.

Might suck down the road but I can just work around it if the larger (largest) tile size becomes an its own issue

Same issue here. Changing cache tile size to 1024px hid the issue, but it still a bug. I don't remember seeing such problem in Photoshop CS6.

This should be fixed in the Photoshop CC (2015) update.
