V8.0: adding product variants leads to complete slowdown of system

Hi,

In adding variants for a product, Odoo calculates all possibilities:

(example, an iPad, with variants Colour (black, white) and Size (16 gb, 32 gb) creates 4 products (black, 16, black, 32, white, 16, white, 32)

I noticed that adding several variants and possibilites quickly overloads the system (many many possibilities, of course...)
This makes the variants option unusuable for a template product that the user could build and customize himself according to his needs..


Any insight on this issue or workarounds?

Further tests indicate that the variants options could not be used as it led to a time out.

A work around can be to use not the variants, but options on a product and to build a product template.

It would still be good to hear from people at Odoo regarding the slowdown for the variants. The variants is a really good addition in v8, but the fact that you can only put a few until the system overloads restricts heavily this feature...
