My employer and I both use the latest version of Photoshop CC and we are both experiencing the following problem. When we put a mask on a layer and visualize the mask by hitting the backspace key, the red starts to break up after a magnification of %50. I was hoping the latest update addressed this bug but it did not.

That sounds like a video card driver issue.

What OS version?
And have you updated the video card driver from the GPU maker's website?

OK, so that increases the chance that it's a video driver issue.
Get the latest driver from the GPU maker (Nvidia, AMD/ATI, or Intel).

We updated the Nvidia driver but that did not fix the problem. However, when we switch from a 16 bit/channel to an 8 bit/channel the problem stops. However, I would prefer to work in 16 bit. Any suggestions?
