Dear Jeff/Community Members,

I have seen this article written by you (Jeff) few years back on tweaking Photoshop CS6 Performance to its maximum (

Does this apply to Photoshop CC 2014 too? I have a Windows 8 System with 8 GB RAM, Radeon Dual Graphics System with an AMD processor. I use Lightroom and PS side-by-side, and some times PS CC2014 seems to slog too much and sometimes it just plainly refuse to do a task (like a Content Aware Fill!!!). (Lightroom is fast though all these time. I wonder why, since many people have reported the other way round.... Photoshop running fast and Lightroom slogging.)

If there’s any other blog or write-up you may want me to see, that should be fine too.

Yes, that still applies.
