Painter 12 lag on Dell Precision M4600

NVIDIA Quadro 2000M with 2GB GDDR3, 16GB RAM, intel core i7 2820QM, 2.30GHz

from what i gather this is one mighty laptop. i allocated almost all ram for corel to play with and brushes still lag, even zooming takes fraction of time T_T any ideas?

what operating system? how long have you been running it and are all system device drivers up to date? what is your input device?

wacom intuos 5, win7 and yes everythings new, got this pc just few months back. for the record painter is behaving the same way it did on the 3y old computer with different tablet. always assumed its the fault of the ancient wares, but its about time to resolve it. photoshop with same files works fine.

ps: thinking into it, this might be software specific thing afterall. could mod toss thread to ps&corel forum?

Make sure that your Wacom and Windows tablet software bells and whistles are off (water ripple effect when clicking, press and hold instead of right-clicking (this in particular causes a delay whenever pressed)). There's a bit of registry tweaking and obscure corners of the Control Panel to delve into. I don't remember the exact steps, but the info is fairly easy to find.

Try what Chocobob suggests.

I have had a lot of problems with those stupid graphics tablet fx in win 7.

Once I couldn't get rid of them with all the registry tweaks and settings. So I booted the pc with a linux live disc - like knoppix and renamed the "wisptis.exe" in some windows folder to "Wisptis_.exe" and created an empty txt file which I renamed to "wisptis.exe"... if you just delete / rename it, windows will restore it once booted again.

This will definitely make sure that windows is never going to enable those fx again. Because it can't.
