I have a big issue with new Osx MOJAVE and Lightroom CC ver. 2.0 on a Macpro with ssd/32gb/6 core + Dell 4k 32 inch. and double graphic card AMD FirePro D300 2gb ram. The scrolling gallery is very very slow at all screen resolution, isn’t possible to work fine. Does anyone have the same problem? No problem before upgrade to Mojave with the same system/Lightroom version. I tryed to uninstall/reinstall Lr with two reboot but the problem isn't solved. I'm very disappointed, it's crazy that with my old Macbook the speed is ok and with an expensive/professional system it's impossible to work.

What are your Preference settings for the following options, particularly the Cache size, Smart Previews and Graphics Processor?

If you have the same settings as before, but reduced performance, I am inclined to think that there is a bug.
Firstly, let us try to upvote this post and get it noticed as something to be looked into. I will also report it in another beta forum that I am a member of.
In the the interim, if you are able to - have the hard drive space, a good internet connection and a catalogue that is "not too large" - turn on the Smart Previews option to test what difference that makes.

Seems like a problem with AMD graphic cards Lightroom CC: Slow scrolling (macOS). I don't have any problems on my Windows 10 machine or MacBook Pro with Intel graphics (it scrolls a bit slower but I believe this is because I don't have any originals stored locally).
