I am using InDesign daily for more than 12 years. For years, we are crying for multi-core CPU or/and GPU acceleration (Win platform). The current situation, where all CPUs are favoring multi-core architecture with less focus on single core performance (the correct way) is making InDesign to be so absrud, that InDesign withing heavy/large workflows are borderline unusable.
Right now I am sitting on 6k+ USD computer setup, upgraded to oblivion just to wait seconds to InDesign to zoom in. My last project was exporting for 8 hours and cca 30% of really big gigs are freezing without noticing. So you must constantly checking background tasks, and cannot even let this run overnight.
