Flash Player 8 has DirectX and OpenGL optimizations?
I was reading the “Interview with Mike Downey, Sr. Product Manager for Apollo” over on Ryan Stewart’s blog and came across something. When asked about hardware acceleration Mike said,
We’ve already made some good progress starting with Flash Player 8 where we added DirectX and OpenGL optimizations to boost graphics performance.
Does any one know more of the specifics of this statement? Are there tests to show the performance differences (now that we have Flash Player 9 for Linux)?
