Photoshop: Flickering Screen (retina Macbook)

When using the brush tool on my retina Macbook, a black square will flicker on the screen. Usually it's pretty small but every once in a while it's a full bar, or the entire screen, that flickers black. Apparently this was an issue with the Air but the software update to fix the problem there is not compatible with my laptop. Is there a way I can fix this or do I have to wait for a software update for my laptop model?

That sounds like a driver problem that Apple fixed a few months ago on the Air. But I haven't heard of anyone else having the same problem with a normal MacBook.

And yes, with Apple you have to wait for them to release the OS / driver fixes.

Thanks--I did some more digging around and found something about changing the drawing mode from "Advanced" to "Normal." I've never changed that before so it's weird that this would start happening recently--the only thing I've done is install Mavericks. (Funnily enough, that helped another person solve this problem on their Air, apparently.) Changing the drawing mode seems to have solved the problem for now, but here's my system info anyway:

Thanks. I wanted to see your settings and card to see if changing the Advanced Settings would help.

Just to confirm, changing the Advanced Settings for Graphic Processor Settings to Normal from Advanced fixed it?

Hi,

I currently am having the same problem, changing the Drawing Mode from Advanced to Basic doesn't help. Could you please help me out? I had post my topic for 2 days but still no support. 

This is my topic. https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/photoshop-cc2015-flicker-on-macbook-pro-retin...

Thanks in advance.

Yeah: Preferences > Performance > Advanced Settings under Graphics Processor Settings. Just took the drawing mode down a notch.

That avoids the bug in the driver, but somehow there is still a problem in the driver. What I don't understand is why you're seeing this and other users aren't...

When I reopened Photoshop just now the flickering was back--but it stopped when I tried drawing with the trackpad, and is now working normally with the tablet again--even on advanced drawing mode. So maybe it has to do with the tablet driver instead?
