    Although numerous posters in the general thread have raised similar issues and complaints, it can be hard to tease them out of the 36 pages and identify what macs they're I thought I'd start a thread on this topic.

    Let's discuss UI lag problems with the new Microsoft Office suite.

    On my mid 2014 rMBP 15" (1TB, 16GB, dGPU) I'm experiencing choppy scrolling and window resizing and what seems like a very slow launch time for what I would expect would be a relatively light application.

    I wonder if this has anything to do with iGPU vs dGPU...

    Share your model, maybe if we're lucky Microsoft has MacRumors spies that care...

    It is like there is no GPU acceleration at all. As if it renders all in software. While it is weird that they would release even just a preview version in such a state, I guess they will resolve it eventually. It is bad currently, but I doubt there is anymore to say. Wait for the Beta. :(
    I for one open my documents with 2011 again and will not touch the preview anymore. It is not bearable to do anything with IMO.
