AFAIK, with a true IPDS printer (and cards?) the system will send resources down once and store them at the printer. But if you emulate IPDS with Host Print Transform, this does not happen, so it is slower. There are some posts about sending stuff to HP printers as macros, thus storing AFP resources at the printer.
