Default Re: Slow AA text rendering in KDE

By the way, does anyone know any way to benchmark different fonts? Do you think that different fonts need different resources?
No, its all pretty much the same. The single glyphs (a single letter of a font rendered) are cached in VRAM, so to the GPU all fonts look the same, they are just small pictures. What the pictures contain is not relevant for accaleration at all.
