I have a 2017 i7 4.2Ghz iMac with 24GB ram and the 580 Pro 8GB graphics card, and the performance of the new Lightroom CC is at certain points very very bad.
Scrolling through the photos is an pain, its very slow and choppy, and if I scroll a bit faster, the program gets hang on the scrolling direction I was scrolling for some seconds. If I reduce the window size, the scroll gets smother (not perfect). Which makes me think that the program is not optimized, at all, to retina displays. Any album with more than 30 photos and I'm spending more time scrolling than editing. And going to the "all photos" tab is not an option.
Anyone experiencing this? Any temporary fix? I notice that if I change the grid view, it gets a bit better, but not by much.
Plus, some edits, like the brush edits, are also very slow to take effect. When I'm painting with the brush it lags a lot behind my current cursor position.
It's a bit disappointing because, despite not being 100% smooth, I have a better performance on lots of Lightroom functions on my almost 7 years old MacBook Pro without a Retina display.
