I cannot reproduce this.  I don't see any lags with this recipe.

But that's not what you get with "emacs -Q", right?  So maybe the
problem only happens when you don't use -Q?

Also, is it possible that you have some optional display features
enabled, like ClearType?

Finally, maybe you could try a different build, preferably of the
latest pretest of Emacs 25.1, and see if you have the same problem
