Scrolling lags/blurs/feels sluggish v1.7.3. on retina MacBook Pro


Lately I’ve noticed some lagging when scrolling with Atom, especially when compared to Sublime Text. Because I’m really loving the editor, I decided to go down the rabbit hole and look for a solution, instead of abandoning it (it really makes my eyes tired after a while).

So far, I’ve narrowed the problem down to the HiDPI of the retina MacBook Pro, after hearing other users reporting the same (this has been going on for a while, apparently). Actually, I’ve switched to the same resolution (1280x800) but with regular DPI (using RetinaDisplayMenu) and it went away. This is impractical, however, because everything just becomes blurry.

Anyone else experiencing the same?
