[quote="Ashley":vi1x17k8]Oh right, it shows black bars when the layout is smaller than the window. Those black bars are drawn as well, and each weighs up to about the same performance impact as the tiled background (a four vertex quad). In such an intensive test, they're bound to show up as making a difference. Always keep the layout bigger than the window if you want to keep it a fair test.[/quote:vi1x17k8]
Ok, but what exactly eats up the 4 Megs of VRAM in this case?
This is some good stuff to know, to be careful of when trying for max performance, hence all the questions, Ashley
Edit: Got it, buffering of sorts.
