I will differ with some of the writers.
I too occasionally suffer from the problem. But suspect it is not OS, because whenever Nemo hangs, I simply open Double Commander and get instantaneous results.

One experiment would be interesting. Open the System Monitor and watch the processor usage while nemo is running slow. Is Nemo locked into one processor?

If Nemo is developed using a modern programming language/approach, the thumbnail and other processes could happen in the background using other cores. I do not have a directory with enough files to create the problem. I do see a similar problem in other software where the SSD is faster than the software but the software uses only one core.
