Lightroom Desktop: Very slow

Since switching to subscription (Lightroom CC with 1TB storage) I'm still disappointed with the speed of the Lightroom CC desktop application (on Windows 10). On the same computer, the same number of photos the Lightroom Classic 6.0 is so much faster. The poor speed is visible in a few areas, listing the most annoying ones.
Switching photos in detailed view is super slow. Especially if you move backward.
Applying a filter os selecting photos from specific date (or just month or year) is very slow.
Copy/paste adjustments from one photo to another (to one or to many) is super slow.
I have all my originals stored locally, the same location on NAS is much faster with Lightroom Classic 6.
Is Adobe working on it?

I am looking for alternatives to lightroom cc as a result. It is nearly unusable for me at this point. I was able to find this thread and reply before a photo I took about a month ago would load.

It is unclear Robbie, if you are concerned about slowness of the App Interface as the original poster mentioned or the single-asset sync issue mentioned by Joel. If we have more detailed information there might be a simple issue that is solvable.

Same problem here in a win10. 

Lr cc takes more than 2 minutes tot start up. :/

Optimising catalog did not help in any way

Same problem with macOS Catalina. It takes about 2 mn with a blue circle turning in the middle, to gat a view of my 40,000+ pictures. It is almost unusable and I will have to start looking for alternatives. Any comments from Adobe and any advice on what to do to fix that very annoying issue ?

I'm experiencing similar problems with the performance issues described here. I've recently installed Lightroom CC and found the Import process worked very well for 2000+ images (it constantly failed on other applications). However, the application performance when browsing and viewing Detail has been woeful. The lag time makes it pretty much unusable. 

My system specs appear to meet the minimum requirements:

MS Surface Book 2 running W10

Intel i5 2.5GHz

8MB RAM

64-bit

DirectX 12

NVIDIA GeForce GPU

Display Memory: 5043 MB
Dedicated Memory: 987 MB
Shared Memory: 4056 MB

System Info through Lightroom is showing this:

Graphics Processor Info: DirectX: NVIDIA GeForce GPU (27.21.14.5167) - 987 MB
Graphics Processor Detail: loaded: Yes, supported: Yes, compute: Yes, init: I3_GPU3, hard: success, soft: fail_insufficient_memory, wl: No, bl: No
OS Media Capability: true

Is the 987MB RAM on GPU the source of the performance problem?

System-wise, it looks like I should have 5MB of GPU but does the  performance of Lightroom come down to dedicated GPU?

If so, is there anything I can do to tweak my settings to improve performance?
