Lightroom: Slow performance on Xeon CPUs

I noticed that LR clone and brush tool on my XEON E5-1650 0 3.20GHz (Attention: E5-1650 0 and not E5-1650 v4) can not stress my CPU and after x minutes of working LR slow down, until I have to restart it.

Please see the full diskussion with the problem here: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2210245 (test with different Lightroom versions, confrontation with a weak laptop, that works fine, tests wit other graphic grafic card, test with other bios settings etc. No results. Only restart LR or minor display resolution helps.)

Can anyone with an XEON E5-1650 0 3.2Ghz confirm this?

I am losing the will to live......adobe needs to get their finger out, my i7 can happily churn using all cores on Lightroom processing, it needs them but when I am working through adding keywords I gradually get slower and slower performance until I get a non responding lightroom. If I kill lightroom before it becomes terminal my PC continues with no issues. Basic software problems on professional, and not cheap, software really isn't acceptable in this day and age.

Looks like Adobe has finally decided to listen to it's customers. Please take the time and fill out this official survey: http://www.canonrumors.com/do-you-wish-lightroom-was-quicker-adobe-does-too/

It saems noticably amount of users stopped using it. Capture One can afford to raise the prices. Or it is just time buying (again).

The fear of Adobe to acknowledge to their community that lightroom performance is below standard for a very long time has resulted in a lot of anger hate and suffering to say the least. Use the Force Adobe, Rewrite Lightroom and get us all off the path to the dark side.

ADOBE WANTS TO FIX LIGHTROOM & WANTS YOUR INPUT | BUT DO WE NEED A FIX OR A NEW BUILD?

We need new build from scratch. There is no fix possible for Lr anymoore since it is 10+ year design. It is odd where oll billions of dollars of income goes?? It seems development gets only fraction of it. At best.

If you are an existing Lr Classic CC customer, and would like to test out a developer preview build that we think fixes this performance issue. Please send me a note and I'll make sure that you are invited to the prerelease program. Thanks.

I have the same issue as Reed Radcliffe but didn't want to post my main email address here because of spam issues.
