Hi Paul ,
The animated cell demonstrated in the blog post is indeed a heavy element ( as it performs animations on load ) .
I am sure we can make some optimizations for your specific scenario. For this I will need to step through your code .
Can you please open a support ticket and attach me the project ( or a simplified version of it ) , I will be glad to do a profiling session and change what is needed to boost the performance .
