Why is the Calc's vertical scrolling speed in Ubuntu (or Linux) very much slower than in Windows 7?

In WIN7, I can scroll Calc's sheet vertially smoothly, on time with the mouse wheel movement. But in Ubuntu, I have to wait scrolling is completed whereas the mouse wheel scrolling has been finished already.

LibreOffice's version is My hardware is HP Pavilion dm3 (Dual Boot: Ubuntu14.04/Windows7).

Please test if the options in Menu/Tools/Options/LibreOffice/Memory - Graphics cache and ../LibreOffice/View/Graphics output, can help.

Thank you mariosv, I can see a bit of improvement of the scrolling speed when increasing Graphics cache, but still miserably slower than that of the default setting in WIN7, especially the sheet has a lot of data (thousands lines). Tweaking Graphics output gave me no improvement. I feel this slowness might be come from old X-Winows system, or Windows version's optimization is much better than Linux's. Best regards,
