Does this help you?

I've tried it without graphics acceleration and it's a little slower, although barely noticeable.

I'm using the same Library ported from may old laptop, and have Quick Previews enabled as well, and I do have the previews file copies over correctly as well to my new laptop.

I have heard several complaints like this about recent MacBook Pro computers, and to tell you the truth, your CPU may be near the top of the line for Macs, but it's just not near the top of the line CPUs that are available (although I don't know if any of them can be used in Mac computers). And CPU speed (or lack thereof), along with your 5K screen, is probably the cause of the slowdown, that the CPU just isn't fast enough to generate these previews for a 5K screen.

It's not a 5k screen though.  A normal retina that's been in many MacBook's since 2012.

Disappointed, because there just isn't a big increase in performance.  I'll have to keep using it for a while to see if it's worth it to even keep this new MBP, or return it and continue to use my old one until something comes along that allows me to work quite rapidly within Lightroom.
