IE9 to use GPU acceleration to speed up rendering

Posted on Thursday, November 19 2009 @ 18:59:38 CET by

Yesterday we heard Microsoft is focusing to make Internet Explorer 9's JavaScript performance at least as fast as the Chrome and Safari renderer, and today I spotted some more news from the Microsoft Professional Developers Conference over at TechSpot.

Steven Sinofky, president of Microsoft's Windows and Windows Live division, revealed the new browser will take advantage of GPGPU computing to accelerate text and graphics rendering. He demonstrated this new feature in Bing Maps, enabling the feature boosted performance from around 14FPS to up to 60FPS.

The software giant also promises improved interoperability and standards support in IE9, including HTML 5 and CSS3 support.

Finally. It's take too many years to get this feature into browsers.
