Can confirm but having difficulty bisecting to find the cause to see if this is an intentional change.

Alaska (Alaska) claimed this task.

Upon further investigation with help from another user, this appears to be an intentional change. This is due to the fact that the Optimal display option for the sub-division surface modifier is enabled by default in 2.83.

Here is the commit rB09b8cdb25e45. The issue here, as I see it, is that this change isn’t mentioned in the 2.83 release notes. @Sergey Sharybin (sergey) could you add this change to the wiki please?

@Evan Wilson (EAW), good point. Added brief statement about this.
