This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom CC: Scroll speed on iMac Pro incredible slow

The all new Lightroom CC fulfills my wildest dreams about what i wanted lightroom to be.
But: I own a Top Line Macbook 2016 15" System with Radeon Graphics and 2,9 GHz Quad Core CPU, but scrolling is not smooth. When putting Lightroom CC on a secondary 5K sceen it is not even close to smooth, when scrolling with the magic mouse top and down a few times, the result is that i can sit back and watch the next 15 seconds for the programm to execute the scrolling operations, and this in an album containing just 200 photos. In Apple Photos scrolling in the same constellation is like butter. This is really a huge dissapointment and blocks me from using this software, since... what I want to do with it is as well: browsing my photos...
But the direction the product is going is really promising.

Hello, I just bought a brand new iMac 5K 27'' Intel Core i7 4.2 Ghz, 16GB DDR4 with Radon Pro 580 8GB (just to say that I put money to get good performance on Lightroom). But then, I was really disappointed when I realised how slow Lightroom is. (Classic is slow but the new Lightroom CC is very very slow).
I have about 32k photos in my library and scrolling is awful. Whatever I do, nothing is really reactive as you would expect for such professional application.
(just for information I have activated the Graphic Processor in Lightroom settings)
I would like to have a feedback from Lightroom that they are working on solving this problem in order to provide the best user experience to their customers.
