I have a 2021 Macbook Pro with the M1 Max and 64gb of ram, and playback of Mavic 3 footage in Adobe Premiere Pro 2022 is laggy, pauses, and overall terrible. I don't understand this, the system is plenty fast enough to handle this footage and Quicktime has no issues playing the footage - I can grab the cursor and move forward/backward at any speed I like and it's smooth, but in Adobe I can't even play a 20 second clip beginning to end without it pausing, and if I grab the cursor to move ahead of behind the picture doesn't change it stays.
Clip properties (shot on mavic 3 with flat color profile):

Total Duration: 00:00:23:50

Color Space Override: Off
Input LUT: None

I've tried changing the playback resolution to 1/2 and full both with same result although there is no reason this should not work at full.
My system has OS Monterray 12.5 and Adobe Premiere Pro 22.5.0.
I also have some 5.7k footage from a GH6 which plays back smoothly, seems that only the DJI footage doesn't playback well in Premiere Pro.
The particular options chosen in drone long-GOP/H.264/5 media can be a bear for editing systems, even with the correct hardware bits for decoding that stuff. I'm not familiar with the specific hardware bits your Mac has so can't comment, but a couple other users who 'hang' around these parts do have the specifics.
That media is just ... nasty ... stuff. Most of my colorist buds ... with massive Macs or PCs, in the 20-25G range for the computer by the time they've got it fully specced, NOT including monitors and RAIR arrays ... hate getting a project with drone footage. Many simply make proies or t-code it immediately on reciept.
