On my PS5 the game runs considerably slower than before. Units lag through space and everything is extremly laggy. Does anyone else have this problem?

If you're playing on a pre-update save, start a new save. Reinstalling the game may also fix this issue.

If after reinstalling, you're still experiencing this issue on a new save, please open a Stellaris: Console Edition ticket at support.paradoxplaza.com, so the devs can investigate this.

OK. I posted on bug forum about multi-player (stuttering, desync) problems and done other things.

I thought Ticket is only for crashes.
i have the same issue on series x multiplayer. stuttering on map and after 4 hours adjusting the gamespeed does not make any difference between 1-2-3 . Everything takes forever...

I'm having the same problem with my PS4 pro. Uninstalled it, reinstalled, and the new stutter makes game a bummer to play. I loved seeing my little ships move to and fro, not the feeling like I'm watching them through a strobe light :(

And did anyone try multi-player? It's almost unplayable since the update for me. We had a desync with 2.2 but could still play. But with 2.6 there are multiple of them and we have Strange issues like getting only 2 instead of 3 research options, being unable to build ships etc. Restarting fixes some of them for a short time but then appear again. Hope it can be fixed. :(

Here are several things for you can try that may help mitigate desyncs in multiplayer:

1. Do not do anything while paused, if people need to pause, move the game speed to slowest instead.
2. When reloading a save game, or starting a new game, let the first month tick over on the slowest speed setting.
3. Have the player with the best console host.
4. Keep the game speed down to where the game runs smoothly. ie. if it's only slightly faster on the 3rd speed setting, keep the game running on the 2nd speed setting.
5. Do not use pre-2.6.3 saves.
6. When you desync, rehosting sometimes fixes it.

Doing some or all of these things may help decrease the chances of a desync, and obviously your experience may vary. If this helps, please let me know. :)

Does PS5 have an equivalent to Smart Delivery? https://www.windowscentral.com/xbox-series-x-smart-delivery
