Photoshop 2020 v. 21.0.1: Delayed response with brush and stamp tools

When using the brush and stamp tool, the v. 21 has introduced a delay in responsiveness.

Computer specs:

- iMac, late-2013, 3.2 GHz Intel Core i5
- 32 GB RAM
- Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M 1 GB

The problem:

When using the brush, each time I sample a new color, I have to wait for a long beat (approx. 1 second), before it "takes" and I can start painting. If I start too quickly, I might get a dot or partial stroke, but, nothing, further. My cursor moves but no paint is laid down. If I wait for that extra second, after sampling color, then, I can paint.

The same happens when using the stamp tool, as well. After sampling a source point, I must wait for an extra second before painting, for the paint to lay, down.

I've been using Photoshop 2018 and there was no wait time needed between sampling and painting. 

This lag time introduces an unacceptable slowdown in my workflow, as I do a lot of sampling and resampling over the course of my photo retouching work. I have updated the latest patch, as of 21.0.1, with the same problem, persisting.

Thanks, in advance, to Adobe, for checking into this.

Hello, thanks for your response. The problem occurs on any file, from complex photos (20 in. x 30 in @ 300dpi) to a simple 1500 px x 1500 px @72dpi filled with white (then lay down some brush strokes to have something to sample from).
My system info is below.

Thanks, again.

Looks like you're running a few AlienSkin plugins... what happens if you disable those?

I'm having the same problem. Very laggy brush.
I have tried disabling third-party plugins, no difference.

In my case, this happens with the mouse, either using an external one, o the trackpad.

Does disabling rulers help your situation at all?

Are rulers shown? If so, does hiding rulers improve things?

Thanks for responding, Jeffrey. That's a great catch. Yes, my rulers were on. Turning off rulers helped. I was not able to replicate the problem, with rulers hidden, during my few minutes of experimentation. The problem came back when turning rulers, on, again.
