Why Mouse cursor is so dangerous for performance?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

It there anybody can explain me why the presence of mouse cursor in OpenGL windows break speed.

For example in XBench or in GioFX OpenMark.

When I try full featured hardware OpenGL the presence of cursor makes me delays up to seconds for each refresh.

What is the influence?

because quartz composer have to render in-frame scene first than make texture from it than compose new scene with cursor dropping shadow on textured plane ) than show it to you

otherwise (without cursor) it probably run pure HW render in window

I think so at least

try to profile it
