    At the expense of jittery animation...

    And Finder is still no way as fast as that on Snow Leopard...

    Someone with a retina macbook pro can confirm that the graphics glitches are somehow lower or gone?

    I have a Macbook Pro (mid-2014) 13" and with 10.10.3 I had several 'jittery' animations - mainly swiping between desktops and such. With the 2nd public beta of 10.10.4, those animations seem to be much smoother - almost no lag at all.

    Of course this is all with reduced transparency and increased contrast on. I still don't understand how this GPU can't handle an increased load of non-game desktop animations without lagging. Optimization by Apple is crap?

    Really? Are you sure about that? What about nVidia 650M and Intel Iris GPU? :apple:

    OS X Yosemite vs Windows 10 beta performance

    I found this to be a rather interesting read http://www.alexvking.com/12_inch_macbook_and_windows_10.html

    The most interesting part being the paragraph before the last.

    UI on OS X has gotten quite bad over the years. I'm tired of people defending OS X's UI performance when there is obviously something wrong. Especially when other OSs run just fine.

    Where I found the article and a discussion at http://www.reddit.com/r/apple/comments/35yasx/testing_the_12inch_macbooks_performance_with/

    I agree. It seems to be much more stable and responsive. Definitely not a placebo effect. Memory usage seems greatly improved also.

    Actually safari just feels the same.

    10.10.4 seems to be under the hood changes. Nothing has changed UI wise.

    You don't have to be enrolled IIRC.

    Code:

    People have said this so much and for so many years, I doubt anyone actually remembers how fast or slow the Snow Leopard Finder was!

    If you're so unhappy, go buy an old Mac with Snow Leopard on it!!

    Trying to avoid the placebo effect - I waited to actually see how Yosemite behaves in terms of WIFI.

    I installed it this morning - 7 hours later I haven't seen my WIFI dropping and reconnecting. Previously it dropped like 2-3 times/hour and reconnecting.

    Back to my mac is finally working faster - before I needed like 5 minutes to be able to access my home mac mini. Now it's under 30 seconds.


    Le't see if it stays like this.

    P.S. The new Yosemite interface is not nice - but I think the direction Apple goes with it - it can end up good.
    Let's hope for a more refined 10.11

    I have to agree with everything being faster. Safari loads faster, on 10.10.3, it would hang when it initially opened. Tried it on several different WiFi systems. Now with the latest 10.10.4, much faster. And smoother for me.

    Same. just updated it and it seems snappier. I use a display link USB outputting to a 2nd monitor on my MBP so differences in graphics performance is more obvious

    Try creating a new user account, reboot and login to the new user account. Does the lag happen in the new user account?
