    @TaranVH Cool. Let us know if you notice a difference. I have tested this on both Windows 10 and macOS 10.15.7, with Premiere Pro 14.6, and even with a 2 hour long i-frame only based video the amount of frames displayed while scrubbing, when "Play audio while scrubbing" is turned off compared to on, is substantial.

    The Adobe Premiere team also changed the way Premiere Pro handles pre-roll for playback of audio, which dramatically speeds up start of playback for audio when using clip based audio effects. This changed was introduced in Premiere Pro 14.5.

    "Faster audio pre-roll in Premiere Pro provides responsive playback for large projects or projects that use a lot of audio effects. No more waiting for playback to start on macOS and Windows."

    This new feature can also be turned off/on under "Audio Preferences > Use legacy audio effect playback pre-roll".

    @TaranVH Have you tried to turn off "Play audio while scrubbing" (shift+s, or Preferences > Audio)? This dramatically improves scrubbing performance overall. I have reported this to Adobe for many years, including screen recordings. It is especially noticeable with longer videos, and even more so with long highly compressed Long-GOP videos.
