I've been noticing that Free Transform would lag considerably even for
the most basic shapes (say a 20px ellipse with one fill color). I've fiddled around a bit
There also seem to be two different modes with the Free Transform tool. Sometimes it live-previews the transformation while I'm dragging, sometimes it does only preview the outlines of the objects while transforming. I haven't been able to figure out what exactly caused Photoshop to use one mode or the other. The lagging only happens when Photoshop tries to live-preview the shape while transforming.
EDIT: It seems I have been mistaken about the root of this
being Artboards. I had this issue resurface today with the same
document, this time without using artboards at all.
