Currently all downloaded part data is saved to disk and when all parts are downloaded, all parts are read again and decoded into the final file.
This causes a reasonable amount of disk I/O. This can be improved by keeping all downloaded parts in memory. When all parts are downloaded, the
individual parts will get decoded and written to disk.

My solution for this is using tmpfs.

If you use this in /etc/fstab

tmpfs /tmp tmpfs defaults,noatime,mode=1777 0 0

and set your download (temp) folder to /tmp.
Great results with it.
