AFAIK, Adobe Reader does not use PDFKit.
I haven't had it installed on any of my macs for years, so I can't say how it performs.
I have downloaded Renaud's Présentation software and it is working very nicely.
Renaud, great work!

I have used Skim for maybe a decade now; in the old days when Mac came with white remotes, Skim allowed me to present hands free without any configuration; it just worked.

No more smoothly new material appearing to be added to a slide; the whole redrawing is noticeable... and since is a PDFKit thing, all the above applications are affected by it.
