As new computers started to increase threads, rather than single thread performance, Illustrator stopped improving in performance (relatively speaking).
It's because it's not a multi-threaded app. That makes it way behind the curve.
There are some scenarios (such as the pattern making/editing tool) that absolutely halt to an unusable crawl if you do anything interesting with it. I believe it would be greatly helped by multithreading.
