I think you are seeing the result of an FFT over a sample discontinuity.
This discontinuity is due to overflow, in other words, your computer is
not able to process at this rate.

Are you seeing overflow (O's are being printed)?

Are there any warnings printed by the driver?
(Answering some of those warnings can help with performance)

Usually running an FFT display on RX data is not a big performance hit.
Any information about your PC that you can share? CPU? OS?
