    Default modern pixel write speed

    I see that Apple's new language Metal can write 4 million pixels to a display 25 times a second on an ipad.

    google " flexmonkey swift metal four million particles"
    (I'm not allowed to post a link cos of this trendy fad of no links for forum noobs.)

    Last time I tried to write a fast pixel writer was 4 years ago, I got about 1.5 million pixels a second using the old basic BlitzPlus. I could do with a faster pixel writer. I was wondering how fast Java running on Windows could write pixels these days. Anyone know?

    That would depend on the OS CPU speed, the number of cores and whether threads were used to divide and conquer the writing of the pixels.

    I used an AMD A8 7650K, and my BlitzPlus program only used 1 CPU core. I think 1.5M pixels per sec was about as fast as that setup could get.

    Pixel pushing code is quite rare these days. Not many are trying to push the limits of their setup in this respect, so I guess I'd be pioneering software if I tried using Java to maximize pixel write speed.
