Need Help with illustrator on my Mac studio has been really laggy and freezes.

I usually use photoshop but im getting into illustrator for t-shirt designing.

 

I have the M2 Mac Studio which I've had sense last year. I just started getting into illustrator (I'm completly new to it) and while doing various tasks while following some YouTube tutorials I noticed illustrator was moving very slow and had the beach ball loading many times where as the video I'm watching had no issues. Also when doing simple resizing of text and making patterns it got really laggy. I tried the 3d effects as well just to test how big of an issue it would be and it froze for a few minutes.

 

I've used my mac for lots of video editing as well as photoshop without issue so I'm not sure what the problem is.

My artboard is sized at 4,000 x 4,500 pixels.

Also here's my specs.

  • Apple M2 Max with 12‑core CPU, 38‑core GPU, 16‑core Neural Engine

  • 64GB Ram

  • 2 TB hard drive

Hopefully someone can help as I don't know if it's a setting I have on or if it's my computer which it shouldn't be. The thanks.

Also I forgot to mention that I don't even have any other apps open while I'm in illustrator.

 

Lastly maybe my artboard is the wrong size for t-shirt designing but i see others mentioning sizes a little bigger than mine. 

 

Any tips or help will be appreciated
