The reason for this could be that we use a transparent window by default which involves heavy calculations. We need this as some of the default themes contain partially or entirely transparent elements. You could disable this by setting the RadWindowInteropHelper.AllowTransparency to false to the RadWindow control.
Hope this helps.
All the best,
