Hi there, check this out GNOME is the default which uses Wayland. GNOME Classic is a traditional desktop layout with a similar interface to GNOME, using pre-activated extensions and parameters. Hence it is more a customized GNOME Shell than a truly distinct mode. GNOME on Xorg runs GNOME Shell using Xorg.

The brief answer would be to avoid Gnome Classic if it is slow on your system. For more details you can check the syslog and see if you are getting gnome-session errors when you run Gnome Classic
