PS CC 2017.1.1 - Using 'Export As... and selecting anything larger than 1x (as a jpg or png) clogs up the program. Sometimes it takes upwards of 15 minutes to export a single artboard at 2x size. Even with smaller file sizes this happens, which lends me to believe that the software is written with inefficient code to achieve a 2x file.

Does this happen on all files or just files that are using artboards? If on artboard files, do you have a lot of shared smart objects between those artboards?

Artboards + Export As is just asking for trouble. The combo of the two wasn't properly tested and there are a large number of bugs related.
