camera raw 9.1 sliders very slow on new macbook

Hi everybody,

I have Photoshop CS6 and the new MacBook Pro with the following specs:

- Retina 15-inch (Mid 2015)
- CPU: 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7
- RAM: 16 GB
- GPU: AMD Radeon R9
- OS: OS X Yosemite 10.10.4

Photoshop and especially camera raw is super laggy with all sliders. Interestingly it works a bit better, when I am installing Photoshop CS6 new and do not update to the newest version. But then I do not have the Retina support and so on. Since I am sure it cannot be the hardware, which was btw checked by Apple, and apperently people are using the same OS and CS6 on older Macs and it is working without any issues, I assume something with the drivers is not alright here. Any idea how I can fix that? Or any idea what it else could be?

This is very frustrating and impossible to work properly under such conditions. I tried already to contact Adobe. But since CS6 is not supported via the call support, they sent me (after over 40 min of waiting and talking to 4 different people) to the chat support. And they sent me then to the forum support ...

I would appriciate any help!

Same here! But this time in Win OS.
Camera raw 9.1 in AE - slow image update from sliders moving.

Previously I was able to move sliders like crazy and get lightning-quick respond! Unnoticeable respond time! And now I can see almost step-by-step process of image processing - image with noise, then noise reduction, then some color correction - and only after that - the final result of moving other slider.
This is unacceptable!
I'm working with CDNG files for years in AE and everything WAS excellent!

Win 7 x64
Dual eight-core Intel Xeons (E5-2687Wv2) 3.4GHz (32 logical cores overall)

Plus began to get error "license manager has stop working".

Did every step described here:

still getting same license manager error. wrote to my RUS support about this.

C'mon Adobe - one error after another! Please respond.
