Personally I didn't find anything even near in performance to 
wkhtmltopdf, even firefox, chrome and libreoffice.
In the last week I was able to get a ~2250 pages Partner Ledger report 
with ~128,000 lines in less than a minute using wkhtmltopdf after some 
tweaking to the source html.
trying to convert the same html to pdf using libreoffice, chrome or 
firefox hangs the application or the system.

Also I tried AthenaPDF with same results of chrome.

the latest version of wkhtmltopdf 0.12.5 is working great in features 
and performance for reporting in Odoo .

My 2 cents
