Here's an experiment; let me know what you see on your machine.

 emacs -Q
 C-x C-f xdisp.c RET
 M-x fundamental-mode RET

(Use any other large file if you don't have Emacs sources, which is
where xdisp.c comes from.)

Now lean on the PgDn key, and tell me whether Emacs can keep up.

On my Core i7 machine, Emacs keeps up just fine, and on average a
single processing unit is busy 20%, i.e. there's plenty of spare
processing power left.
