Is it normal for the Software app to be so slow when something is installing?

I've got a fresh install of 22 here, and I'm noticing that the Software app, while very polished and fun to browse around in, is amazingly slow when it comes to displaying its menus if I've got an app mid-download.

Example, from the front page, I click on "Games". The top level "Featured" loads instantly, but then if I click into one of the genres like "Role-Playing", I get a bunch of tiles containing "..." (as long as there is a download progressing in the background)

These take actual minutes of real time to populate, or immediately once the background download finishes.

I'm not on a slow internet connection, and this appears to be a constant thing (i.e. it's not load on the upstream server)

Is there any way to speed up Software?

Seems to me like it is supposed to be this way, which is then another issue meaning you cannot even access the software list when you are installing one....after switching from windows this seems to be like a test for patience sort of a thing. Hope I am wrong and someone helps answers the question if there is something that can be done... Patience is a virtue...
