I doubt there is some simple way,

the most of the performance relies on the data extraction, so you would have to split your reports into separate chunks of data.

Have you tried benchmarking against FPDF?  I have always found FPDF to be very fast, so fast sometimes that I thought it had not run, until I discovered a complete PDF file had instantly appeared in my directory!

But that aside, I agree with Roads_Roads about data extraction.  In your case that is probably the data base.  Make sure you have indexes on every column used in JOIN, WHERE, ORDER, and GROUP clauses.  Use EXPLAIN SELECT to see what your queries are doing.  Avoid SELECT * especially if you have any large columns.
