RVIZ problem / very slow after hardware migration

Hello community !

I am developing a robot with ROS for my school activity and I have a problem with RVIZ due to a hardware configuration change. Indeed, I just switched from a computer equipped with an I5-2520M CPU with an HD Graphics 3000 GPU to a Ryzen 9 5900X CPU with an AMD Radeon RX 6600 GPU in order to gain performance in my simulations.

However, the loading time of my URDF with RVIZ is worse than before. It used to take me 30 seconds to launch my simulation with RVIZ and now it takes me 10 minutes...

I am running Ubuntu 20.04 on both computers with ROS Noetic installed. My package "my_robot_description" is the same on both computers (URDF, MESHES, Launch files, etc...)

After trying to debug the problem, I noticed that RVIZ is very slow on my new computer when running heavy ".stl" files (10 MB). So I don't think the problem is from RVIZ installation.

I can't find the source of the problem and I'll be glad if someone helps me to solve this problem.

I thank you in advance !
