Assigned materials slow loading

I'm working with a file that has 3 models, each with a flat 3km x 3km polygon.

To each polygon, I have assigned a 10,000 x 10,000 pixel TIF aerial image (approx 300Mb each). These are mapped using elevation drape.

As I flip through the models, Microstation takes a really long time to load each image.

I have tried converting the images to JPG (thinking it might be a SSD bottleneck in loading the files), but there has been no improvement.

Is there anything else I can try to speed up loading these mapped images? It feels like some kind of cache delay issue.

The problem occurs in both V8i and CONNECT.

Windows 10 Pro, HP z640, 2x Xeon 2660 CPU, 32Gb RAM, NVIDIA Quadro M4000 (8GB)
