PDF to images performance

Has anyone has performance issue with the Syncfusion.Pdf.Base, when using ExportAsImage? When using ExportAsImage we're specifying the page number as well as DPI. The performance when developiong and testing out solution was fantastic, easily getting eight plus pages per second conversion, but we keep finding the performance in our Live environment (which is more powerful than our testing environments) is about eight to ten times slower.

Unfortunetly I'm not able to provide any samples of the files here, due to contract specifications. I've also been unable to replicate the issue with files I've produced.

We are currently using 14.2460.0.731 in our production environments, due to a hotfix we were given.

Below is a code sample, that is similar to our production
using (PdfLoadedDocument pdfDocument = new PdfLoadedDocument(document.SourcePathFileName))
    int totalNumberOfPages = pdfDocument.Pages.Count;

    string sub = Path.GetFileName(document.SourcePathFileName);
    string y = Path.Combine(outputDirectory, sub, "Something_{0}.png");
        for (int i = 0; i < totalNumberOfPages; i++)
            string imageFileName = string.Format(y, i);
            Bitmap x = pdfDocument.ExportAsImage(i, 150, 150);
            this.WriteFile(imageFileName, x, pageCount);
    catch (Exception ex)
        // log error.
