better scrubbing and playback performance - 4k avchd/h264 long gop
i've uploaded this video which displays the night and day difference in scrubbing performance between Premiere and Resolve.
4k AVCHD footage from Sony A7iii

YES, YES, YES. This is the worst nightmare in Premiere. It makes the software feel practically unusable with this kind of footage, and yet my clients insist on working with it, I HATE this. I've got absolutely the same results like you, super smooth playback in Resolve, and Premiere...
How does this have not more upvotes??

I have replicated this issue on numerous computers with DJI footage and other Long GOP footage that contains a large number of consecutive P frames. I have done so on unlike systems such as older Xeon, newer Xeon, and new Core processors. The lag observed is an increase in the prefetch latency, that is resolved for a short time by clearing the media cache.

I have the same problem in CS6. I have been using PP for 20 years, and always found it to be excellent, but this problem really lets it down.
Why doesn't Adobe address the problem?

New Playback Engine with background rendering perhaps?
