AdvSmoothGauge repaint performance poor

Hi all,
now i'm using the nice advSmooth-Controls and i like them.
But acutally i've placed 12 gauges, which are updated every 100msec and i'll get cpu-load of about 40 percent (dual-core).
Do you have any hints to speed up the repainting?

This typically depends on requirements for calculations of transparency & anti-aliasing.

What is the parent component of the gauges? Do you put these on the form directly? 
Also, either you can turn animation off (Animation := false) or try to change the AnimationFactor.
