It would be great if Acrobat was multi=threaded. I routinely have to OCR 4000 page documents which almost always fail and take hours
Acrobat needs to be multithreaded. I have a top of the line machine with 32g of ram and an I7-6700k processor an m2 SSD, yet am unable to successfully run OCR on a 4000 page document without splitting it up into 250-500page chunks, which is cumbersome. Even then, acrobat will only use 12% of my resources.

I second this. I have an 8 core computer and this process is a perfect candidate for parallelization. I think all that Adobe would need to do is divide the document up into X number of smaller documents and then process them in separate streams then combine the results. X = # of cores. It doesn't seem like too hard of a computer science problem and would be a big win for anyone who's bought a computer in the last decade since everything is multi-core now.

I agree. I have a fast, new-ish CPU and plenty of RAM, but I can't OCR more than about 108 pages without Acrobat DC crashing. For a 1500 page document (which I routinely deal with), this means I have to run OCR manually 14 or 15 times. On Acrobat Pro XI I would start the OCR process when I was leaving for the day, and when I came back in the morning my entire document would be OCR'd.
New products are supposed to be BETTER. Not WORSE.
I have the same problems and get very frustrated with a minute load time on ducuments over 3000 mb.
Its been over a year! Has this been implemented yet?
Please also improve the Embed Index tool to use Multi-Thread and better CPU utilization. OCR and Index Embedding go hand-in-hand

We have raised a feature request for this and shall update you about the same.
