Hi Kingsley, thanks for getting in touch.

Rafael here from Trello Support, I hope you're doing okay!
Happy to work on this with you.

We actually don't recommend more than 500 opened cards per board in order to not lose performance so 490 cards just in a list are a lot to process. It is expected that sorting that many cards would take some time to finish.

Keep in mind these numbers in order to get the best performance while using Trello.

Hope this information helps.

All the best,
Rafael Dill
