A lot has to do with the encoding method you choose. Are you using
"copyrect hextile" or something else? If the former, you may want to try
some of the other encodings (maybe even raw, if bandwidth really isn't the
issue) to see if you can get better performance with different--or
no--encoding.

Also, you might want to consider the color depth of your display. It
certainly takes less time to encode 8 bits than 24 or 32, although some
people claim 16 works best (I'm not sure that I completely understand why,
though).
