PHOTOSHOP: Painting on Layer Mask Very Slow

I typically use adjustment layers on images about 7500 x 5000 pixels. If I paint on a layer mask with a very large brush (say 3500pixels) at a very soft setting (say 50% opacity, 50% flow, 0 hardness), it can take Photoshop many minutes to complete one swipe of the brush.

I have 16GB RAM and a 2 year old MacBook Pro i7.

I was hoping this problem would disappear with new CC releases, but not yet.

What else can I add. These actions on fairly large images, send my processor into overdrive. But there are guys working on much larger images,

In addition, I have tried to post this three times and got a "Bad Gateway" error each time.
