This is a known inefficiency.  Jim Winstead is looking addressing this using libapreq 
which is smarter about handling large file uploads.

When doing a file upload on a big file (say 22MB), PHP takes up progressingly more CPU 
capacity for the whole duration of the upload.

The server doesn't crashes but it is so slow that other people can't reach my server, 
when i'm uploading a big file.

I now use a ASP-component on the server-side which handles the uploading and this 
component doesn't slow my server down when uploading a big file.

Can PHP handle big file uploads in the future?

This is the HTML that uploads the file:
<input type=hidden name='MAX_FILE_SIZE' value='25000000'>
<input type='file' size='50' name='frm_file_name' class='input' value=''></input>
