Tell us the exact specs, instead of saying top of the line. CPU, GPU, size of monitor in pixels, and all other relevant information.

Why does the size of monitor have anything to do with this?

Size in pixels, not size.

The more pixels, the longer it takes for the CPU (or GPU) to fill the screen with the necessary pixels so you can see the result. For 4K and larger monitors, you almost have to have a GPU to make the calculations fast enough to obtain "real-time" editing, but the drawback is that some things (brushing, spot healing) are slower with the GPU on.
