Premiere 2017 bugs and large render times

Has anyone else noticed unusually large render times in the 2017 release of Premiere? I'm running dual 6gb GPU's on a MacPro cylinder (and in FCPX and Avid it is really fast, even for 4K) and it takes hours for clips to render. This is why I like FCPX, but I have to use Premiere to be able to use an up converting plugin from RedGiant Shooter's Suite. Adobe is worse than Apple with dropping buggy updates. Also, SpeedGrade isn;t get an update, which may be a blessing, but the Premier to SpeedGrade workflow doesn't still work properly for me- another downside for Adobe.
