Make ArcGIS Pro Faster (Benchmarked by ArcMap)

    Simple idea. 

    GeoNet is flooded with complaints of how slow ArcGIS Pro is. 

    64Bit Architecture was supposed to bring speed. 

     

    Simple operations such as opening, saving, selecting, etc are sloooow. 

    Geoprocessing takes forever and makes my PC sound like it's going to fly. 

     

    I have compared the performance between Pro on my workstation grade laptop to my crappy admin laptop using Map and Map wins out solidly on almost everything. 

     

    Pro has a nice UI and flow to it, but suffers from MAJOR performance issues on even the most powerful of machines. 

    Working with local datasets has also not seemed to help at all. 

     

    For reference, my workstation running pro has: 

    8 core (16 Threads) Xeon 2.4 GHZ

    32 GB of RAM

    NVIDIA Quadro RTX300
