Increasing physics bake speed.

Hello everybody, small question, how do I increase physics baking speed ? I have soft body enabled on my model- a few hair strands to flap about in the breeze, not too many vertexes used (about 150), however, baking takes forever, maybe like 100 frames in 5 minutes, and my computer is not all that weak in terms of hardware, any ideas what causes these slow bakes ?
