Which version did you upgrade from?  IOW, with which version are you
comparing the speed?

When this slowdown happens, is the GDB interaction buffer displayed?
If so, does it help to delete the window where the interaction buffer
is shown, so that the buffer is not displayed in any window?

(I'm trying to establish whether the slowness is related to display or
to something else.)

Another thing to try is start GDB like this:

  M-x gud-gdb RET

and see if the resulting session is as fast as what you were used to
before 24.0.94.
