Lightroom Classic 7.0.1 - First Impression Issues

Working with the Free Trial edition of LR Classic on my PC based desktop I have noted the following issues and am wondering if they will 'disappear' once I subscribe to it.  1)  LR Classic is extremely slow importing and exporting images and especially slow in the Development Module when compared to LR 6.  The more edits applied, the slower it becomes.  2) I use LR with dual monitors and am consistently experiencing screen blackouts when moving from one edit parameter to another.  i.e. perform a noise edit, then scroll up or down to perform another edit.  The monitor screens will black out until the processing indicator disappears.  Often times there will be two or three black outs before LR Classic stabilizes and I can continue with my editing.
     I still have my LR 6 installed.  My system is a dual Xenon processor with four cores running at 1.8GHz with 8 MB RAM on Windows 10 Pro.   Any ideas?  I wouldn't expect the next incarnation of LR to have these sort of issues.

Do mot expect it to be any better. In fact, many users find it slower, including me.

Stick with your LR 6. I had to reinstall my LR 2015 after all the problems I had with "Classic". Wait until -- and if -- Adobe debugs LR7 before you switch to it.
