    Some people have managed to reduce the load times by the following methods:

    Increasing max_vars as seen here:
    (The link is about people not being able to save extra fields, but increasing max_vars and memory available to PHP should still increase performance with your issue.)

    Installing a plugin that limits the number of revisions wordpress saves.

    I’m sorry to say that these will both only increase performance slightly, if at all.
    There is not really a way for ACF to “fix” this in the future, as ACF is just an easier way to access wordpress’ built in custom post functionality.
