UITableView scrolls choppy when the UITableViewCell is big
First, I know there are a few answers here on S.O. that addresses the choppy uitableview issue.
Some of them i applied in my code (namely the cell.layer.shouldRasterize = TRUE in particular as well as the cell queue caching thing). My choppiness is observed to be due to large cell rows (70 pixels height). If I change the row height to be 20, then it scrolls smooth as butter. But 30 and above, it gets choppy, especially when i "pull" and "let go" of the table so that it bounces back into place.
One thing that i am NOT doing is flattening the view (I am using the cell's Xib). Would doing away with the xib design view give me the performance boost that I need?
Also, any ideas why a 30+ pixel height cell row is causing such a drastic difference compared to the smooth-as-butter 20 pixel height?
Note: Even if i make everything in the cell xib to be hidden, i still get choppiness at 70 pixel height.
