It seems as though Photoshop is not working with my Graphics card. I've been in conversation with tech help via Twitter, and they have asked me to provide my Photoshop System Info here.

I'm running OS El Capitan – 10.11.1
My Graphics card is: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M 512 MB

Here it is:

So, just to clarify, things are slow with the graphics card enabled? And things are OK with the graphics card turned off?

Did you have a problem prior to updating to El Capitan? Apple curates/controls the drivers for their OS.

The update to El Capitan seemed to go fine.

Photoshop is slow with the Graphics Card enabled but faster when it's disabled.

Sorry, let me rephrase that. When you were running Photoshop under Yosemite, or whatever OS you had prior, did you have the issue of slow downs? Or did this issue with Photoshop start after you updated to El Capitan?

I was having the issue using the last OS I had – I only updated to El Capitan this morning to try and resolve it. I believe it started when I updated Photoshop to CC 2015.

Ok. Can you confirm this is a Retina Macbook Pro?

It looks like you're currently using a Thunderbolt display. Is that correct?

If you disconnect from the Thunderbolt display, does it perform well with just the macbook display in use?

No – I'm on an iMac 27-inch, Late 2012.

I'm on a 5k iMac. PS is as slow as I've ever seen it.

I turned off my GPU and it improved slightly. Not enough to make the problem better, though.
