I wonder if this could be down to how they are using the widget?

Rhythmbox, for example, displays many thousands of lines of
information in a treeview and dragging the divider to make the widget
resize is fast and smooth. Resizing the whole window is slower since
that has to do a lot of WM magic. But the widget alone certainly seems
quick on my modest laptop.

I realise "works here" is often not a useful reply :-( And perhaps
Rhythmbox has worked hard to get good performance.
