Sep 2020 update running slow

Hello everyone,


Is it just me or is the PBI Desktop Sep 2020 update running really slow?


I have been using PBI since 2016 so my queries are optimized and didn't take this long to run.

My PC config is also quite good, so I don't understand why this could be happening.


Any other feedback/suggestions are welcome.


Thank you,

I'm having the same issue.  I have a VM with 8 virtual CPUs and 32 GB RAM and seeing similar performance issues.
