I have an Asus Z270-WS MB with 6700K build running Catalina 10.15.2 and a 14,2 SMBIOS.
System feels sluggish while playing youtube videos and a little slow. Have latest Lilu, applealc,
and Whatever green plugin kexts installed in L/E and cached. 

The video card is an Nvidia 710 GT

Is it slow because the card is old??
