MacBook Pro Retina (2015) with Intel Iris Graphics 6100 has lots of issues

As an proffesional photographer I like to have good gear. Because of this I replaced my old 2009 MacBook for a brand new MacBook Pro retina. But the performance is dramatic. Photoshop runs better on my old Mac. I was told by technical support that the Intel Iris Graphics 6100 video card which is present in all the 13" models is not tested and supported (yet). I have a lot of performance issues and I see strange graphic issues as well. I was told to switch off Open CL, which should be supported (told by Apple). But this doesn't fix the issues and even slow down Photoshop more. I'm pretty disappointed that an six year old computer has a better performance than a brand new one. By the way I'm running the latest version of Photoshop (2015.1). There must be a lot of proffesionals having the same issues as I experience. Is there a solution or a way that Adobe fix this issue?
