Does anybody have a vertical sync option in Photoshop CS6?

Okay..screw this. I tried posting this question in other places, the thread got over 100 views with NO responses....so lame! So I'm posting it here in hope that somebody can tell me:

I've tried installing Photoshop CS6 several times, installing different video drivers, deleting Photoshop's preferences, and a few other things with no success.

The problem is that the canvas looks really choppy when I move it around with the hand tool, and there's definitely screen tearing when I zoom in and out by holding the "z" key.

In CS5, in the performance section, when I click on "advanced settings" I get a vertical sync checkbox and another about anti-aliasing paths. In CS6 I don't get these checkboxes at all. Instead, it's something about "cuda" and other not very useful options. I've even tried turning on v-sync manually in the nvidia control panel just for photoshop with no success.

For the moment, I'm using CS5 because it works correctly for me.

Well I've done some readin on CS6, and in seeming unrelated adobe forum I spotted this little tidbit of information which may or may not help (and yes, they are aware of this issue) ...
Apparently CS6 has a problem with performance when you have the layer thumbnails turned on (seriously, WTF Adobe) so the suggestion from them right now with relation to this is 'setting the layer panel's thumbnail size to "none"' and wait for us to pull our collective thumbs out our asses and fix a problem that was originally discovered in the public beta ...

Pretty much what Kaito said above.  There's a known glitch in the realtime layer thumbnail display that causes visual correuptions in display of the working image when it's moved or resized.  Current fix is to disable thumbnail previews in the layers pane, then locate your nearest Adobe employee and kick him in the nuts repeatedly.

This is why I continue to stick to CS2.  CS3 and onward were just...Funky.  That, and I have a legit license for it.  ;-)

I beta tested CS6 and turned off the thumbnails as well. Seemed to work fine for me, though I'm sticking with CS5 for now.
