CS6 painfully slow, CS5 was so much faster

I upgraded to LR4 and CS6 about 4 weeks ago, and so far I am extremely frustrated with the performance. LR4 is slower, but I can live with it. CS6 is completely unacceptable, and extremely slow. It takes about 60 seconds just to save a file, flattened or with layers.

Running a quad-core i5 with 16GB Ram and Windows7. Restored the computer to wipe it clean before even taking on the task, let it do all the updates and run for a couple of weeks before I even did the install. I have tried clearing all the preferences, allocating more memory, and many other things, but nothing seems to help. Only plugin that I have is Portraiture.

Any ideas, or should I just revert back?

I find CS6 to be faster than CS5, and I have a much slower system. I also find LR5 faster then 4.4, which was faster then 4.x. I have no idea why it would be slower for you. LR4 is known to be somewhat slow though.

Take a look at your graphics card and settings. CS6 takes advantage of compatible graphics hardware if I'm not mistaken.

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

It's your computer. I'm only running 4gb RAM with an i5 processor and CS6 runs like a raped ape on my system. If what has been posted is true about CS6 uses the graphics card, then that's a good point since I don't have a graphics card, I have a graphics crate inside my tower:lol:
