AFAIK, the only way to improve snapping speed is to turn off all the snapping options you don't need for the task at hand, keep the "Screen tolerance" setting at a small number, & zoom in enough that the tolerance does not include too large a screen area. It also helps to use a computer with as many CPU cores as possible.

The way I understand it is this is because many of the snapping candidate calculations are more complex than one might think & it takes time to calculate all the enabled ones & display one among all the possible candidates.

Thanks for reply. I tried to play with turning off some snapping functions, doesn't help.

I'm not sure but it looks like the ease animation of snapping is just feature of AD, so would be great to have an option to turn it off.
