I have 1 M92on mill system and 1 M93P on the lathe, working well so far but would be nice if redraw on graphics would be better. It’s slow and take a bit to redraw stuff. Is there any way to get a bit more Preformance out if the computers

IF you do not have feed override 100% THEN redraw is slower, according to the feed override % ;)

Oh really, good to know. Really does not make any sense WHY that would affect the redraw rate but I will give it a try. IS it a software glitch or does it have some sort of purpose? Or is it simply to slow down the redraw for visual reference? IF so I guess that would make sense.

Sure this makes sense, because on 100% it is to fast to see the tools moving

the CNC12 graphics are a true G code back plot.. it is actually running the g code program without moving the machine (unlike many ohter controls that just estimate what the machine will do) so feedrate override effects the graphics backplot speed.
on related subject v4.80 has improved gcode backplot graphic speed compared to last version.

It's actually a very handy feature. I use it all the time to actually watch how complicated areas are actually machined. That and Zoom are your friends when graphing BEFORE running a part!

Confidence is the feeling you have before you fully understand the situation.
I have CDO. It's like OCD, but the letters are where they should be.
