A few questions then a comment.

Are you using RAW files to import? Can you try with Rapid Photo Download
and see if it is faster?

Can DarkTable also rename the imported files?

I don't mind the extra space (although that is quite a bit I guess) if it
performs better and I believe it is quite common for a dedicated
application for the ingestion of media in a professional environment.
