Just a quick update from our weekend warriors working hard to make SciChart the best High Performance WPF charting platform:
You may have seen we mentioned that DirectX Scatter chart performance is worse than software.
For background information, see
- Enabling Software vs. Hardware Rendering Plugins in SciChart
- How Fast is SciChart’s WPF Chart
- Insane WPF Scatter Chart Performance with Parallel Rendering
You’ll be pleased to know we’ve done some extreme optimization and managed to get a near 50x performance increase for 1,000,000 points scatter chart with DirectX. See the animated gif below:
This will be available as part of the SciChart v4 SDK later in the year. Until then, you can always get high-performance scatter charts using the parallel rendering trick we presented here!
