Guys, i use opera on a Lenono Thinkstation D20 production workstation, fully maxed out hardware spec, newest bios, with 2 Xeon X5690 processors, offering total 12 cores 6 high end cores per CPU, 24 treads 2 treads per core, 96 gb triple channel RAM and P2200 Nvidia Quadro hardware running in compute and display mode to accelerate editing, managed by Windows for workstations. I also feel frequent issues with it of this beefy hardware. My hardware is not fast but it is optimized to take heavy workloads without taking much performance penalties. Something is obviously wrong with Opera. Sad, i had so much faith and belief in the browser. I also feel slowness and lagging in browsing hanging and not loading webpage assets.
for the curious, the beast as we call it here is primarily used for audio recording and audio editing, and time to time used for browse in between recording and editing sessions
