Poor scrolling performance on Maxed Out Apple M2 Ultra processor with Lightroom CC 6.4

Hello,

 

I'm facing a performance issue with Lightroom CC 6.4 on my Mac Pro. The specs of my machine include the latest M2 Ultra Processor, ProDisplay XDR, 192GB RAM, 8TB NVME, and a 76-core GPU.

 

Despite these high-end specs, I'm dealing with really poor scrolling in Lightroom - it's slow, jerky, and at times practically unusable, especially with larger photo libraries. I've even tried reformatting my Mac, but it didn't solve the problem.

 

Please take a look at this video:

This issue seems exclusive to Lightroom. When I tested the Apple Photos app with a much larger library, scrolling was fast, instant, and smooth.

 

Moreover, basic operations in Lightroom feel cumbersome and take more time than they should, considering the hardware.

 

These problems are seriously affecting my workflow and user experience. Any tips, updates, or workarounds from Adobe or other users would be greatly appreciated. Or perhaps filing a bug report.

That's very abnormal. My M1 machine is completely smooth at this and even my older intel machine is much smoother than this.  No clue why it is so slow on your machine which is extremely overpowered for Lightroom. I would suspect some other software running on your machine that is interfering. Antivirus (not needed on Macs since it is built in already but a common source of extreme slowness on both Macs and Windows), trackpad drivers (also a common problem) etc. So look at any system utility that is not standard.
