Archicad 25 optimizing for Mac

I recognise, that 2D Work with Mac is very fast, due to Metal from Apple.
But I think, the 3D Work with OpenGL is little bit slow.
Is there any suggestion for better work with Mac for Archicad 25?
Sorry for bad english.

AC25 does not use OpenGL it has full Metal support.

You think, Metal is better than OpenGL in 3D?

OpenGL was deprecated so it is obsolete.
So there is no other choice from 25 forward.

I have opened the same building model in AC24 and AC25. 3D navigation in AC24 is smooth while navigation in AC25 is slow and choppy. So much so that I cannot accurately navigate and I use 3D so often that I've gone back to using AC24 rather than 25.
