Lightroom: Slow on my two monitor system (Win 10)

Instead of further bloating of this program, it needs some serious code rewriting and optimizations.

My custom made PC:
Asus MB H170 PRO
Nvidia GTX950 2GB DDR5 GPU
Windows 10 PRO - optimized and clean
Dual Dell 24" monitors
Canon 7Dmk2 - 21mpx raw images

I don't have to tell you that my system is lighting fast for everything except LR!

With these specs LR is still on the slow side at best.

Fullscreen mode with a grid display on the 2nd screen is bugged and not usable. Sometimes this is working, most of the time it's not. Changing images on the grid is not possible without waiting several seconds to display them fullscreen. Pressing the cursor button several times to advance will cause the full screen image to hang while the program will be unresponsive.

Some bugs are still not fixed after years of being reported (e.g. preview screen showing different picture than the one chosen on the grid), the program begs to be optimized.

I really hope in the future LR will get some competition from the others, because it's clear as the day that Adobe does not give the same resources and treatment to LR like it does to PS!

I have to agree. The day Apple killed Aperture was a bad day for LR users.

Lightroom doesn't seem to make full use of the processor and video capability by any means. When doing exports or any bulk task, it simply uses one core. Not very good in this day and age
