I can confirm that I see the same behavior in the last beta version of the software also for the current project I am working on, using the Windows version of TWS on a Windows 10 machine, I have 3713 files in the solution, with everything except reports and dashboards pulled down from Salesforce. Before I started turning things off, typing was like watching an old BBS load on a 2400 baud modem. I could actually type a sentence and then wait a few seconds for the entire sentence to slowly spell itself out.
I have turned off nearly every graphical propoerty of the editor. The thing that helped the most was under TOOLS | OPTIONS | TEXT EDITOR | ALL LANGUAGES | SCROLL BARS. I unchecked the "Show Annotations over vertical scroll bar" and set the Behavior setting on the same page to "Use bar mode for vertical scroll bar". That made a big differnce but it is still sluggish. I turned off line numbers, I turned off ALL Text Editor | Code Assistance features. Now the editor is liveable, but the editor still can't keep up with me typing, scrolling, or simply moving the cursor without a long delay in procesing.
I also tried turned off tracking the active file in the Solution Explorer and TOOLS | OPTIONS | VERSION CONTROL, LOcal Hisotry... those didn't seem to help any more
I run 5 copies of Visual Studio 2015 editing and debugging C# code at the same time on my machine, and never see slow behavior like this. Not a top of the line machine, but a very beefy machine.
Some VS2013 comments from Microsoft recommend disabling the Source Control plug-in for GIT, but that option is hidden from the TOOLS | OPTION page in TWS.
Hope this helps
