Hi,

 

For the performance issues of your website, you can check it on GTMetrix (https://gtmetrix.com/). This generates a report consisting of all the issues hampering the performance of your website and possible resolution of those issues. I would say that upgrading to Magento 2.0 for just performance is not a wise move. Instead, you can try GTMetrix and see if this can help in improving the performance of your website.

 

Thanks,

I agree with @adityakatiyar that it is unwise to upgrade to Magento 2.0 to solve the slow loading issue.

 

Your best bet is to optimize the current Magento installation in order for it to perform faster. 

 

Besides that, you will also need to make sure that your server itself is not slow as all your effort may not result in much improvements if the server itself is slow.

To check if the size of the images hampering your website performance, use GTMetrix (https://gtmetrix.com/).

This will give you a detailed report on which images should be updated or minimized for improved performance.
