Does X-Server on Solaris 8 leverage hardware acceleration?
Does anybody know whether the default X-Server on Solaris 8 will do any
hardware acceleration for operations such as polyline and rectangle
draws and rectangle fills?
I've noticed with our Java application while monitoring X requests using
the xmon proxy that most of the operations are the above (along with
clipping and putImages) and wondered if a 2D capable card (like the
GFX-450) would render these in hardware. Does anybody know if Solaris
10's X-Server does any better in terms of rendering performance?
(Currently, we don't have an OpenGl capable card available so we can't
leverage the OpenGL pipeline.)
Also, it appears that when you draw to an offscreen image (even if it is
shared) that the draw requests still go through the X-Server, is that
how it is supposed to be working? (I've tried creating images from the
JPanel using createImage() and just creating BufferedImage().)
