Yes. macOS Sierra is more optimized for modern Macs, than previous versions. OS X El Capitan included, for example Haswell-specific optimizations (system libraries) which are not available on older processor architectures.I read opposite reports, is it depending from the age of the mac?
Good idea!I left all my macs with El Capitan
Is it a good idea to downgrade to EL Captain on my MacBook pro early 2011?Yes. macOS Sierra is more optimized for modern Macs, than previous versions. OS X El Capitan included, for example Haswell-specific optimizations (system libraries) which are not available on older processor architectures.
Not from me. I use both platforms, and while Mac OS is pretty slick and polished, Windows 10 is not far behind at all, and is a pleasure to use over 8, even 7.I prefer Sierra over El Capitan, but prefer Windows 10 over BOTH of them. Win 10 is just snappier to me than either of the macOS-es.
Commence the torches and pitchforks...
This has been my experience. App-wise, it's as fast if not a tiny bit (very tiny) faster than El Cap.macOS Sierra is definitely faster than El Cap was on my MBP. Window animations and transitions are A LOT smoother. And App performance is either the same or better as well, the former being the more common scenario of course.
I also have a late 2015 5k iMac and the performance is essentially the same on Sierra. I see no difference, bad or good, its just feel the same.I'm running El Cap on a late 2015 5k imac with 4GHz i7, 16GB RAM, and AMD Radeon R9 M395X with 4096MB. Basically 16GB of RAM away from being the top dog maxed out imac you can buy. What I need to know is will Sierra slow my machine down, or possibly even speed it up? I've usually updated the new OS almost immediately after release with little problems, the only one being was choppy graphics performance in Yosemite. El Cap seems to be running very nicely indeed on this machine and I don't want to take a backwards step in terms of performance.
Stick with el cap, folks. It's a beautiful thing.I read opposite reports, is it depending from the age of the mac?
pls wrote your config and if you prefer Sierra
I left all my macs with El Capitan
Win10 is awesome. I hate myself for saying that as I feel unclean, but Win10 is streets ahead of OS X bloat ware.However, compared to Windows 10 right now, El Cap is still El Crap and Sierra is a molehill.
Win 10 simply works. There just isn't a whole lot else to say on that front.Stick with el cap, folks. It's a beautiful thing.

I have the same machine as you. I updated it yesterday, by performing a clean install and I am noticing a similar behaviour. It is not a speed issue. It boots as fast as El Capitan did, apps open equally fast; however, the animations (notification centre, launchpad, scrolling in Finder, etc) are a little bit sluggish.2015 rmbp i7 2.5 16gb ram 512 ssd dgpu, sierra is sluggish and lags. Tried clean installs etc, no matter how many times i give it another try, its pants. Go back to El Cap and all is fine.
