Why nova so slow?

Without any extentions nova on macbook pro 2020 is so slow (If compare with VScode), it’s just almost impossible coding when you typing and see delaying. I’m just wondering if this will improve in the future.
Don’t think badly of me, but Nova costs more money than any other editor.

Hard to say without further info.

Do you notice it being slow for all files, or just specific ones? All languages, or just for certain ones?
What’s the state of your system according to Activity Monitor? (RAM, storage, CPU, etc.)

I have experienced occasional lag on complicated projects, but those usually are related to LSP functionalities (possible same as Very bad performance when using a Language Server - #7 by cccc). Otherwise Nova has been mostly quite fast (with many extensions) on my 2017 MacBook Pro.
