MAC PRO Photoshop Large File Problems.

Hello All,

I have a new Mac Pro 3.2 Ghz quad core intel Xeon running 32GB of Ram on a Apple Display 30" When running very large files on PS CS6 the layers start breaking up into strange streaks and white blocks. Once these problems appear even going back into history will not erase them. If I quit PS sometimes it goes away other times the artifacts are still in the file. Any ideas? Help!

Thanks Everyone!

First, make sure you have the latest Photoshop update (13.0.1).

Then try turning off GPU support in preferences, then relaunching Photoshop. if that works, it means there is a problem with the GPU in your system.
If not, then it could also be due to bad RAM or a bad CPU.

Hello,

Latest PS update is done, CPU is off, but problem happened both on and off. It just seems like the program gets bound up after working for a while.. Very strange.

Any more ideas out there?

Thanks

Photoshop does get "bound up".

Without seeing the exact patterns, I'm still going to guess bad GPU or RAM.

All RAM is brand new, problem happened on Stock RAM as well. I would say the program works great 99% of the time but when it doesn't..... that is bad.

Thanks
