Everything is running slower and is lagging now that the update has come out. I don't know why there are so many performance issues now because of the update, but in my opinion a faster and smoother program that has less features outdoes a fancy but slow program every day of the week.

Photoshop CC 2015 is running the same speed as previous versions for most users.
But do make sure you have the 2015.0.1 update installed.

We have seen slowdowns caused by corrupt fonts, corrupt OS font caches, bugs in video card drivers, bugs in third party plugins, and bugs in third party applications and utilities (like anti-virus, firewalls, etc.).

Have you installed the Photoshop update? (check Help->System Info)

What OS version are you using?

Have you tried disabling all third party plugins and extension panels?

Have you tried exiting all other applications and utilities?

Open Help -> System Info in Photoshop and check the version number listed. It should be 2015.0.1.

You can hold down the shift key while launching Photoshop to disable third party plugins.
