Photoshop: Shake reduction filter extremely slow with a AMD Ryzen 3970 32/64 core processor

Hi,
While using the shake reduction filter in PS CC (Version 21.1.2) I had to stop the process after 10 minutes. My workstation with AMD Ryzen 3970 32/64 cores, 128 GB RAM, NVIDIA RTX 2080ti.
The identical picture on a Surface with Intel i7 4 cores, 8.th generation took only 30 seconds. The manufacturer of the workstation checked the function on a similar computer, he also faced a blocked function with the anti shake filter. It seems that Photoshop has a problem with the newest and fastes multicore processors. Has somebody a good idea?
Thanks and regards Rudi

My thought is that the Ryzen is your problem.... Also, you mentioned that you talked with the manufacturer of your computer and used the singular, indicating that this might be a home built / not FCC certified system. (That IS very commonly done, tho not within the law.)  If so, then there might have been some mismatch of components involved. 

I also have noticed that the Shake Reduction processing time is quite lengthy. I have an i7 on a 6 year old INTEL motherboard, 32 gigs of matched RAM and an Nvidia with 4 gigs on it; that is also about 5 years old, but driver is up to date, having been downloaded directly from Nvidia and not using the Windows System driver update process. I think one image that I experimented with did take upwards of 8 to 10 minutes. Note that I have less RAM than you do...

I am not sure whether or not Photoshop is able to use all those cores; might be too big a horse for this race! I have not seen any reports of Intel processors being a problem, but there are scattered complaints about Ryzen. Hopefully an engineering person with hardware knowledge will chime in here!

Hi Dave,
thank you very much for your thoughts. In the meantime I checked the issue with a 12 core Intel Xeon double processor computer. Also very slow. It ist definitely not the Ryzen! I also tested Topas Sharpen AI as a shake reduction tool. Very fast and better results compared to PS.
I believe Adobe developers have to do some homework.

Rudi: Glad you like Topaz... I use Topaz Sharpen AI and Gigapixel AI, also from Topaz, plus several other products of Topaz. Most work quite well
