Photoshop CS6 running slow on new iMac (27 inch iMac, Late 2012, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M 512 MB)

Opening smart objects, moving big groups for example is running painfully slow with loading spinner constantly. I have tried on two different iMacs, and same issue. Is this GPU supported by Adobe?

Full specs:

Processor 2.9 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M 512 MB
Software OS X 10.8.3 (12D78)

That card is supported for CS6. Did you try turning off the GPU (in Performance preferences) to see if that had any impact on overall performance? Do you have any other applications running at the same time as PS? And finally, is it slower than CS5 on the same system?

Thanks,
