Performance of overprint preview mode and GPU preview mode
Im form a print and packaging industry.
- we frequent work in overprint preview mode but when we switch to overprint preview mode we feel death slowness in the illustrator performance and also checking for the seperation preview is also very slow.
it take minimum of 3 to 8 second to zoom in the artwork
- some time in GPU preview mode we see a red strip above the rulers
Please have a look at the snap shot for our system specifications
and I use Illustrator V23.0.1
Can we get a fix on this - literally no designer worth their salt uses 1920x1080 anymore.
Hey guys, I have the same issue with very laggy over print view and very big latency with transforming rectangle, circle or other vector shape. The line of the vector is far behind the cursor... you feel some kind of delay... and not smooth moving over the canvas by hand tool. here I record the video with this problem: https://youtu.be/mtCttOjDMeM

I got help with this issue from an online session from the peeps over at Adobe. i'm using Illustrator 20.0.1, with a 2019 16' MacBook Pro, Mac OS Catalina 10.15.2.
I spend most of my time in overprint too, and apparently Adobe is backlogged with other bugs and working their way to this issue. In the mean time, they suggest either not working in overprint, or if you have to, press CMD+Y to go to line mode when in overprint to avoid the lag.
The issue is due to legacy software changing up to a 64bit systems. So yeah, guess we're stuck until Adobe solves this.
I have the same problem here (Illustrator V 21.1.0) 64bit - Windows 10 pro
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920x
32 gb DDR4
RX 580 8gb DDR5 video
M2 Samsung SSD 970 EVO HDD
It all started when I upgraded my old ultra wide 2560x1080 monitor to a full 4k display.
On the native 4k resolution all zoom in/out operations with overprint preview on take 3-6 seconds and freezes the system.
If I change my monitor resolution to lower values(1920x1080 for example) everything is back to normal and working fast.
It seams all the problems are related to high resolution (4k and above) and is relative old problem.
If anyone found a fix for it can you please post it here because i could not find it.
Activating or not GPU performance at least in my system case does not have any impact over this bug
I just got a brand new iMac (iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017) ) with illustrator CC all up to date and every time I put the overprint preview on, illustrator get very slow.
I recently try to get help from Adobe support team, but they could'nt fixe the issue! Anybody can look into this?
Also, the file size doesn't matter, whatever I try in a simple or more complex file the overprint preview always slow down illustrator greatly.
