Arrow 2D performance problems - a general topic

February 12th, 2010, 14:44
Hello, everyone,

I found this on the site of "Tom's Hardware" :


This is a longish article on 2D performance.

It was made because of ATI/AMD seemingly having *huge* 2D-performance problems. Something no-one had expected to ever be.

The German site also has an in-depth article looking at the differences of GDI vs. Directx : http://www.tomshardware.com/de/wddm-…te-240487.html

My general comment towards all of this is just :
Yes, the performance problems of 2D were always there - but no-one ever noticed them. There are simply no more or only very few benchmarks for 2D out there anymore, because no-one is interested in 2D anymore. All everyone is interested in is 3D.

3D rulez ! Who needs 2D ?

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
