Thank you for those who have tested 8.2 Beta 2 and sent their feedback.
8.2 M0 has now been delivered and includes some performance improvements.

A team is allocated full time to looking at the CPU usage in some particular use cases based on your reports.
Some applications are not really good citizens and send us constant full screen updates when they show static content (like the inbox Photos application, or Spotify). Improving the behaviour for these suboptimal applications is a longer term feature.
The team has also identified particular situations with video playback where we can save some calculations and therefore lighten the load significantly.

We have had to build dedicated test rigs and code to make sure we can make reliable measurements instead of relying on subjective impressions.
A second team will join the effort when they have finished current commitments.

We keep putting significant money and development resource into delivering incremental improvements.

Kind regards,
