Because ads are a priority on websites, so they will take more resources in order to load, and then the actual website is next...that was more of a guess...but im pretty sure that's atleast somewhat right...
what you can do about that however is do what I did and download an Ad Blocker and chrome now works perfectly.

Slow how? Slow to open up? Slow to load a page? Slow to open new tabs? Chrome works fine for me so I think the problem is something else.

Use adblocker from the chrome web store and see if that does anything

while chrome tends to benchmark higher than other browsers, if you look at the actual data, the differences are in the millisecond ranges. (generally the difference in some browsers are in the order of 3-5mms, (keep in mind that full motion video displays 1 frame every 16 milliseconds)
You are just not going to get a giant speed boost.
Also with a single tab, chrome performs about the same as firefox, the only time when there is a noticeable boost is when you are dealing with a large number of tabs as with firefox and most other browsers, all of the tabs are using the same thread while with chrome, each tab has it's own thread. This allows windows to automatically load balance by spreading the tabs across all CPU cores.
So if you were to do something like quickly refresh or load 50 tabs on chrome and on firefox, on a dual core CPU, chrome will likely finish the job in half the time, and on a quad core chip, it will complete in 1/4th the time (assuming there is no internet connection bottleneck)
PS also don't worry about faster java script engines and other stuff like that, the benchmarks related to those have to run thousands of scripts just to avoid measurements down in the fractions of a millisecond time area.
A modern browser on a modern CPU will not be a bottleneck unless you have an internet connection in excess of a gigabit. (if you see large load time differences than that is due to connections and pipelining which you can adjust in many browsers (tweak it until your page load times become faster)

This may not be your issue here but one thing that always slows down chrome for me is the Google updater, Try using CCleaner to disable Google update in the start up list and to disable Google update in the scheduled tasks list. Then type ' chrome://plugins ' in the address bar in chrome and disable Google update.
However Google Updater is very persistent so unless you delete the Update folder Google creates in one of two places it will create new entries in the aforementioned places
If you choose to delete one or both the Update folders Google creates, you will have to manually download chrome if you want to update, which will restore the update folder(s)
I have said to only disable, so that you may re-enable them if this does not fix the issue.
Also instead of deleting the update folder(s), just move them elsewhere until you find out if this will fix your issue.
