Bizarre performance issues.

LR 4.1 has significant performance issues with many computers.

(Particularly in the develop module on latest process).

Right now I am getting almost identical performance on a dual core Macbook Air as on my desktop with dual hexacores (12 cores, 24 threads with hyperthreading). In fact it uses less CPU resources than the previous build. Used to occasionally hit 100%, now never peaks above 25%. Methinks they have so many multithreading issues they have limited things while they sort it out.

Minor fixes in 4.1, but still a lot to fix, and it is pot luck which computers suffer the most.

Adobe forums are full of this.

Great shame, it is an amazing converter for workflow, but it is very poorly written.
