Ligthroom 6 CC very slow, near to unusable

Compared to Lightrool 5 the new CC is in many aspects very slow, near to unusable. Examples:

- Switching to 1:1 in Library mode took 1-2 seconds in LR5 nor 15-30 seconds!!
- Loading the next picture whiel in 1:1 also takes 15-30 secons!!
- All adiustment sliders hang evety not and then, picture update sometime 5+ second
- Brushes are very unresponsive, it's nearly impsossible to do precise work

It makes no difference if "Use Graphics Processor" is enabled or disabled.

All of the above used to be no problem with LR 5. An other interesting fact: Swiching to 1:1 and to other pictures in Develop mode only takes 1-3 seconds, now why is Library mode that slow?

All this on a new Lenovo Thinkpad Carbon X1 2015, core i7, 8 GB ram, PCI SSD. Pictures and catalog are on the SSD.

Adobe: Fix this now!

Try hovering your mouse cursor over your nameplate (top left corner below the menu) and see if there's any background tasks running. (gps address lookup, face detection etc...)

Same experience here. Win 7pro i7 960 3.2Ghz processor 24GB RAM, photos on 2xdrive CalDigit Raid 0, app on SSD Samsung 850 Pro. NVidia Quadro 4000. All background processes turned off. Photosmith Plugin.

Loading 1200 session photos took over 4 hours, had to abandon making 1:1 previews simultaneously as LRCC constantly went into not responding. Making previews on the fly takes 20 seconds + per image. I was expecting great things form the 64bit only app, but honestly, it's the worse release of this software ever, and I've been using it since 2008. Was hoping the update this week would go some way to fixing it, but no change. Come on adobe, this is really unacceptable. As it is this is unusable.
