Photoshop CC: Slow on my third screen

Running the latest Photoshop, and it's very slow on my third screen. And only there. On my first and second screen, performance is reasonable.

My setup is as follows:
Windows 7 x64
Twin GTX760 in SLI with three WUXGA monitors
First(middle) & second(right) screen connected via DVI on first(top) card
Third(left) screen connected via DVI on primary port on the second(lower) card
Drivers are at 344.60

Photoshop's exact version is 2014.2.1 20141014.r.257 2014/10/14:23:59:59 CL 987299 x64
Memory is absolutely plentiful
In PS preferences, HWA is enabled

Any idea? Otherwise I'll consider this a bug and expect a fix in the near future.
Please do not hesitate to ask for more detailed information. I *can* provide details, but I wouldn't know what else. So just ask.

Is the issue with the 3rd display new to this latest version of PS, or has it been occurring for some time?

Also, is there a way for you to plug the 3rd display into the "first" card to see if that helps?

PS will still use both GPUs for compute tasks (like the newer OCL-based performance improvements), but it has never used dual GPUs for pixel display.

Thanks,
Adam

I'm sure a previous version of PS (although still version 2014) did not have this problem, but it may also be a compatibility issue with a newer driver. The previous version was a few weeks back, but so was the previous forceware driver. I do want the newest driver, all in hopes to solve some other performance-related problems that I'm having.

Anyway.

If I connect the 3rd display to the first GPU, it'll automatically become the 2nd screen, now wouldn't it ;)
And then of course, PS would work like a breeze. It would work around the problem I'm sure, but it doesn't solve anything...

I just installed driver 344.75, and it seems a lot better. But Windows decided to update itself, too, so either of these things may have fixed the problem.

I can't say the GUI gets anywhere near the magical 60fps, but at least it's in some kind of workable state.
