...this is also a way of degrading insert/update/delete performance. There are no panacea to good performance, otherwise such options would be on by default.

An answer to your question could be very large. A few things that spring to mind:
  • Denormalizing data
  • Deploying your database in a cluster
  • Using more powerful database server(s)
  • Getting more bandwidth between your client and the database
  • Making sure statistics are well maintained
  • Sending extra instructions to whatever query engine your database uses (if this is supported)
  • Breaking large queries down into smaller queries and doing more work in the client
  • Use query hints (if your database supports this)
  • Increase the temporary space available in your database (if your database requires this)
  • Don't use functions
  • Don't use transactions
  • Avoid correlated subqueries if possible

  • and so on.
