    Performance in CS4 worse than previous versions

      I use Premiere 2.0 at work and love the stability and smoothness of the editing workflow. Don't get me wrong there are a few hiccups here and there, but what software does not have that?  I use CS4 at home on my core i7 920 6 gigs of ram geforce 285 WD raid 0 setup.  CS4 playback is ok but the editing workflow can be very sluggish.  I know that this performance issue has been reported by many, but there does not seem to be a clear explanation for it. The computer system always gets the blame, but when a previous release of premiere runs perfectly fine on a slower system and the newer CS4 runs worse on a bigger, faster system, it does not make any sense.  I know that some things have been rewritten in the software, but why such a drastic change in performance?  I have been using premiere for years, but this sure is a good way for adobe to push its customers to  look at other NLEs.
