I don't think this is the case anymore with the new versions.

It still feels like it takes a bit longer to load projects and will freeze up every once and a while when you try to open a large file, but the cleaner interface and time I've already invested in configuring it exactly how I want is what has always kept me from transitioning to VS Code.

Maybe try the nightly build. I've been using that and it loads extremely quickly.
