I have found that there are printer drivers and then there are printer
drivers. Some have more/fewer features, and some make the printer run
slowrt/faster. As to the latter the speed also varies with the type of
document; some drivers will print one document faster than other
documents, and another driver will print the other documents faster,
and I've never found out why. I have a number of laser printers and I
have installed at least three drivers for each one. I would recommend
trying different drivers.
