You can cause WP to get all the custom fields for a post and then cache them, once this is done additional database calls are not made and instead the values from the cache are returned. To do this you use get_post_meta() without giving a meta_key
$meta = get_post_meta($post->ID);
once you do this you can ignore what is in $meta and use get_field(), or you can use the array that’s returned instead.

ACF wouldn’t be so widely used in WordPress if it didn’t have some pretty amazing capabilities. In this article, we look at a few of the features we’ll discuss during “7 things you didn’t know you could do with ACF” at #WPEDecode later this month. https://t.co/5lnsTxp81j pic.twitter.com/Yf0ThPG1QG— Advanced Custom Fields (@wp_acf) March 16, 2023
