Socoder -> Blitz Max -> Creating ''Graphics'' Slow

Creating ''Graphics'' Slow


I know you guys have moved on from BlitzMax, but I've been noticing that creating graphics on vanilla BlitzMax is pretty slow these days, maybe it's a Windows 10 thing or a driver thing but on my PC it now takes over 3 seconds to create 1920x1080:



The code is super simple:



Any ideas why its so slow these days?

I'm on Win10, too, so .. Driver issue, I reckon.

FWIW : GFX = Intel Onboard Bollocks.

Hmmm, I'm using a not so shitty Nvidia GTX 1080...

Dan's results are even worse, must be because of a multi monitor setup(?).

I've expanded the test so it uses different drivers:



On my PC OpenGL and DX11 are fine:

Also, don't forget the alternative graphics drivers, too..

Oooh, now then..
The fact that mine does 7 and 9, and yours does 9 and 11..
That might be telling...

Current BMax version = 1.50

Sorry Jay, what are your results with the different drivers?

I honestly didn't want to post them, for fear of your screaming insanely at the screen!!

@Jay - I need to upgrade my GPU!

Does your driver have those "Per App Setting" settings?
Perhaps the driver is trying to figure out what the app is, before initialising things..
Compile once, head into settings and specify the app, then try running again and see if it's any quicker..

Hmmm, I've noticed that it has improved heaps recently:
