This question already has an answer here:

I'm generating grids of ListLinePlot objects with hundred thousands of points each, and my notebook gets very slow very fast. IE, I have a hard time scrolling once I add a couple of figures like below.

I suspect it's because I have millions of vector objects being rendered, which seems unnecessary for simple visualization. Is there a nice work-around for this?

    $\begingroup$ You should post code not images of code. Also, have you seen Rasterize. $\endgroup$ – Edmund May 13 '17 at 21:33

    $\begingroup$ I often group and close cells that have rich graphics when scrolling, only opening the cells when necessary. $\endgroup$ – David G. Stork May 13 '17 at 21:45

  • $\begingroup$ OK, the collapsing tip seems to do the trick. A reusable contribution to the community could be a modified "ListLinePlot" which acts same args as ListLinePlot, but can handle large datasets without slowing down display too much $\endgroup$ – Yaroslav Bulatov May 14 '17 at 23:38
