Lightroom 6: Freezes while importing

OS 10.10.3 Graphic processor NVIDIA GeForce 9400 OpenGL Engine card turned off due to crashing in Develop module. On Importing if I go out of Lr6 while it is importing, ie to mail, internet etc, and come back to Lr it is frozen and has stopped importing. I ejected the card and tried to start over. Would not. I needed to Force quite Lr, restart, and finish import. Same procedure on my newer Laptop, which has the graphic running. NVIDIA GeForceGT 330M OpenGL Engine and I can go out of Lr and come and still importing. There is not a crash report as it did not crash. Suggestions please and I think that the problem is that my older iMac desktop graphic card does not have the power to run this version of Lr 6 and do other things at the same time. Thanks

I don't think it is a problem with your iMac - I have a brand new iMac Retina with AMD Radeon R9 M295X 4096MB and it is reproducing the same problem.

I have the same problem with a macbook pro late 2014. Bridge works fine for any task, yet lightroom does not even get to show the importing progress bar. Extremely bad performance and coding.
