I'm feeling that on my older work desktop too (8 GiB RAM, 2.6 GHz quad-core, circa-2010 AMD Deneb). However, I suspect it has mostly to do with things other than GC.

The main argument to improve GC is robustness, not typical-case performance. We're still installing last-minute hacks into Emacs 26 because of real-world problems here. It would be useful if we didn't have to mess with these hacks because we fixed GC to not blow the C stack.
