Is downloading recent nodes any slower for some reason?

I’m just downloading the full blockchain with [bitcoin core QT client]( for windows, while initially it was downloading at 10% progress rate now it dropped to 0.7% the network didn’t slow down at all. Does anyone knows what could be the reason?

  1. The newer blocks are more dense than the older blocks. But honestly I haven’t checked at the halfway point. Just depends on what math they use to do the guesstimate.

    The initial download depends on:

    * Processor speed to do validations
    * Disk speed to do chainstate database
    * Network speed to download blocks

    Might check to see which is maxed out.

What do you think?
