problem with very slow matrix function

Mathematica will do this function, but only very slowly...
Thsat limits the number of values and how big I can make my critical point.
I'd like a better , faster expression to do this kind of matrix 
switching function.
I'm also looking for a way to make the switch depend on a random
level as well (&& / And).  
I tried a version and it ignorred the second "and" implicit
and did it on only the first implicit expression.
As I want to do this on higher matrix level Bonacci/ Pisot
systems, I would appreciate any help.

(*  2by2 Markov sequence Critical Eigenvalue collapse of   golden mean*)
A[n_]:=If[(Max[Eigenvalues[A[n-1]]])<12, M.A[n-1],A[Floor[(n-1)/2]]];
(* Critical Eigenvalue collapse at 12 of 2by2 matrices made with  golden 
mean  recurrence*)

Respectfully, Roger L. Bagula
