Broken: version: 2.81 (sub 16), branch: master, commit date: 2019-11-20 14:27, hash: rB26bd5ebd42e3
Worked: (optional)

Short description of error
I just opened my current project and playback dropped from 40fps to 13fps. I found that problem is with hidden animated (or drivered) object. If you animate (or drive) viewport visibility, it take performance similar to showed this object. In 2.80 it runs good.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. open scene
  2. be sure that *.abc is linked
  3. Play it with 2.80 and 2.81 and check the FPS

I get 33FPS vs 11FPS with my computer

You can try it with this scene:
