    It is not as straightforward as it may sound :) We have been working to take advantage of threads and other hardware such as GPU/Video RAM in places where it can make a higher impact. We are prioritizing areas that are slow instead of making a generic change and destabilizing the product. Product stability is the top priority for us and we have been consistently trying to improve it. We want to move with caution and make changes without compromising on the quality. Hope this helps.

    @adriana, since I don’t do video work and primarily 2D design work, I went with the best iMac that I could. With the top i7 processor, 32 GB of RAM, a 1 TB SSD, I was in the $3500 range. The base iMac Pro starts at $5000.

    Depending on what apps you use. I use Adobe XD as much as I use Illustrator. It’s amazing how much faster and smoother XD is.

    Also, I bought mine from expercom.com. I upgraded the RAM through them and saved a ton of money, FWIW.

    @Steve:
    Thanks for writing this. I have the exact same issue as you. Converting text to paths in large situations, or creating very complex compound paths would leave Illustrator useless for what feels like eternity.

    Just looking at Activity Monitor, Illustrator is pegged at 100% (I have the highest end, non iMac Pro with an i7/ 32GB of RAM and an 8GB graphics card). That 100% only represents one of my four cores.

    I'll add my 2¢ here. As I'm waiting for Illustrator to render the task of using the shape builder tool. I have a quad core i7 and it takes forever for Illustrator to crunch the data, using only one core.
