Hello fellow users of this patched version of photoshop, I have a temporary fix for your problems with slow down, lag, freeze and unusable workflow in Photoshop 2020 and 2019/2018

Lets go to the important, the solution:

Symptom
-Check if you have selected two or one scratch disk different as the primary disk.

Per example, everybody has Windows installed in the hard disk C:/ and Photoshop set that as primary Scratch Disk but Adobe recommend use another one. Ok, tested with different disk I see that the problem was there.

Solution: 
-Change the scratch disk from any other disk to C:/
If you have the scratch disk selected in C:/ and D:/ and E:/ just uncheck D and E and check only C:/

How? Go to menu edit/preferences/Scratch Disks and activate only the "startup" disk, in this case C:\

I'm a professional artist that works with bigger images, with 1gb PSDs and the slowness start when I change the scratch disk to D:/ . My primary disk (C:/) is a NVme SSD and my D:/ is just a regular 5400rpm Seagate disk just to use as a primary and quick backup.
When photoshop 2020 and below use a secondary disk as a scratch disk the lag and freeze make photoshop practical unresponsive.
Tested with other disk (D) and the problem persist, now the lag and freeze dissappear but I need 30GB of free space in my primary disk to use photoshop.

SOLUTION NUMBER 2
-If you have a Nvidia Geforce video card there is a bug that make photoshop to slow down and freeze.
Solution: Don't wait until Nvidia or Adobe fix the problem.
-Go to your desktop
-click secondary mouse button and select NVIDIA CONTROL PANEL
-a popups open and select MANAGE 3d SETTINGS
-Selected the right tab PROGRAM SETTINGS
-and in the SELECT A PROGRAM TO CUSTOMIZE below, select photoshop.exe
-and below in the SELECT THE PREFFERED GRAPHIC PROCESSOR FOR THIS PROGRAM select your INTEL CARD or INTEGRATED CARD. 

You will lose your Geforce capabilities inside photoshop but you will be free of lag and Intel works the same.

SOLUTION 3:
If you use a HUION TABLET or WACOM TABLET. uncheck the WINDOWS INK inside your tablet preferences program and create a text file with this info inside.

# Use WinTab
UseSystemStylus 0

and now save the TXT file as PSUserConfig.txt and paste the file here:
C:\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2020\Adobe Photoshop 2020 Settings\

But try the scratch disk solution first with the last version of photoshop.
If any of these solutions works for you, please write a comment here and help other to fight the lag and freeze that make photoshop so unusable for artists, photographs and designers that pay everymonth a suscription to support the company and have a legal software installed.

Have a great day and keep creating!

CC2020 is crashing when I try to use the 'Select Subject' function. I thought I'd give your solutions a try.
Solution 1 did not work for me, I have over 10GB free on c:/ (also an SSD as you have)
I started on Solution 2 but at the last step the dialogue box did not contain "SELECT THE PREFERRED GRAPHIC PROCESSOR FOR THIS PROGRAM select your INTEL CARD or INTEGRATED CARD. " 
I have not tried Solution 3 yet.

For me, Photoshop is causing my whole system to freeze when I try to open it so I can't even get to try the first solution.

If the whole computer is freezing, it's like a low level driver issue. Update your graphics driver directly from AMD or NVIDIA.

I've updated both my AMD driver and the Intel on-board driver and the same issue persists

I disabled the on board card and now, instead of freezing like before, it loads but to a white square screen with an X in the corner, if I close that, the program closes.

The windows ink thing apparently worked for me! I unchecked it and tried the situations that would usually cause the program to freeze. At least so far, everything is working so smooth I don't even dare to believe! Thanks a million

You can also try this: Go to Control Panel > Pen and Touch : on Pen Options tab, click on the pen action: Press and hold    Right-click, then click on Settings... button.  In that dialog uncheck Enable press and hold for right-clicking.  Click Ok, and then Apply/Ok.  Restart

Greetings, i've been searching all kinds of forums/documents and haven't succeeded so far.. I'm using Release 21.1.2 with no external plugins. I've tried nearly every solution on every forum (disabling gpu from performance, changing scratch disks, legacy compositing, history, cache, etc), but sitill i have a great deal of difficulty while working with my documents, so laggy and stuttering, and what the hell is about saving? it takes quite a long time...

Some specs of my .psd documents are;
2360x720px - lots of grouped layers (~50) with vector smart objects, nearly no adjustment layers
1180x360px - 640x360, 700x600 etc.

and here is my setup:
tuf mark 2 x299 - i9 9940x - 8x16 vengeance lpx 3000mhz - 8GB seahawk x gtx 1080 - samsung 950 pro for boot - samsung t5 1tb for data - 1200W PSU and below is my system info copied from photoshop.

Any kind of help will be quite appreciated.
Regards

Well, I have found solution - you need to find torrent with photoshop 2019, and install it. It works perfect. Its "funny", but Im paying for photoshop and I need to use older version from torrents, because Adobe is full of crashes and there is no possibility to use older version of program that works good.

thanks Michal for the feedback, i think i'll need to revert to the old version as you and most of other people suggested. is there an exact release of it, or cc2019 will suffice?
Regards.

Just here to say that the nvidia vs intel stuff seems to work. I already had the 3rd step done because my wacom tablet would only allow pressure if I used pen mode and I prefer mouse mode. I've not done much testing yet, but the fact that PS opened up in 10 seconds instead of the usual 2-3 minutes already gives me some hopes. Thanks man, saved my ass a lot of googling

You're welcome! Let us know if everything works better that way and if you can tell us what cpu have, would be great for other fellas.
I have a asus gamer laptop and still fighting with photoshop, no lag but I have a problem with memory, when I put my laptop to sleep photoshop brakes my windows 10 when come to life again.
It's typical a memory problem, some programmer from adobe just let a variable eating memory resources and crash the system.

I hope Adobe start to dealing better with these kind of bugs, or I will go back to the shadows as Michal says and cancel my subscription.

Hi, I had a massive problem with lag in PS, when I was trying to _close_ saved file. Switching between open files was fine, just closing single file was freezing PS for several seconds.

TL;DR - disable 3rd Party Plugins - in my case probably FontBase plugin is the lag culprit, since I do not have other PS plugins.

It was like several seconds, the PS was freezed and (what was symptomatic) - I was seeing layers (in Layers panel) from the closed file briefly (for the duration on the lag) _in_ the other (still open) file.

I tried various “solutions” to no avail (disabling scratch disks, graphics card, nVidia settings). Than I stumbled on to one solution:

https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop/lag-after-closing-file-in-photoshop-on-windows-10-pro/td-p/...

When I read that FontBase (which I have) might be the problem - I literally jumped up. Because - several years ago - I had similar problem with Suitcase plugin. I was unable to work back than, because of the overwhelming lag. And it was an auto-activation for fonts plugin - come on - in PS we don’t need it that bad. Just activate the font and run again PS.

Ok, to sum up - I tested PS with all solutions applied and disabled (nvidia, disks and other) and the only time the lag disappears, is when I start PS holding Shift (thus disabling 3rd Party Plugins).

Guys - try that.

PS. I had also issues with Wacom and disabled Windows Ink (earlier).
