Subject Re: Hardware Acceleration
Date Tue, 03 Sep 2019 17:26:13 GMT
Hello Stefan,

We didn't investigate that topic; all we know is that there's a rumor 
that hardware acceleration is used by the JVM for some operations when 
run on a physical system (not a virtual machine).

Most of our slow rendering files have poor performance in 
ColorConvertOp.filter(). This is in PDColorSpace.toRGBImageAWT().

Try the file here with a profiler:
