In our latest release we've made big improvements to performance and have tested in many different server environments. It runs smoothly on every type of server with minimal impact on load times. AnsPress (including all of its functionalities) is very fast comparing to other QA plugins. In the latest release we have made major improvements to reduce MySQL queries and to increase the speed of page load for all page templates within plugin.
