DX performance on large (>100MB) pdf files?

Just wondering if there is a performance hit on large pdfs >100MB or so?

Thanks!

I haven't noticed any performance degradation based only on file size. The largest pdf I have tried is 122mb. There is a slight slowdown for image-based pdfs vs. non-image pdfs, but it's on the order of a few extra seconds at most (depending on the resolution of the images)

I've tried a 160MB one (1st part Delphi Reference Manual) and it loads as faster as other PDS, but page turn delays until 10 seconds.

I haven't viewed a PDF that large, but I had a computer manual (11 MB) that took several minutes to load. Other image based PDFs that were 4 or 5 times the size of the computer manual loaded fine. My guess is that the color cover of the computer manual is huge or something -- not really sure why it took so long to load.

I also found page-turns a bit slower on image based PDFs.
