// Extreme Performance WPF Charts

With DirectX hardware acceleration, smart and lossless data-point resampling and an optimized render pipeline, SciChart provides extremely fast WPF charts capable of drawing many millions of data-points in line charts, or a million points in scatter charts, real-time candlestick charts, mountain (area) charts and more.

In performance benchmarks, we provide excellent performance numbers, but also in real-world applications you will get a responsive, fluid UI when you use SciChart’s WPF Chart components.

What's more, the recently released SciChart v6 SDK is up to 100x faster, able to draw 1 Billion Points at 60FPS, make that Ten Billion Points at 60FPS in real-time line charts, in fact now it's 64 Billion Points in Big Data Apps surpassing even our strongest competitors and making SciChart the world's fastest Big-Data WPF Chart component for complex, real-world applications!

// Customer Reviews about Performance:

We investigated into more than 10 different WPF charting libraries to replace our existing charts. SciChart already at that time was for us the best solution. Performance, API, feature set and even support are outstanding.

I created an application for comparing the performance of several available charting alternatives. I measured the performance of single & multiple traces as well as millions of points per trace. SciChart proved to be the fastest of those I tested.

SciChart is embedded into most of our applications for Oil and Gas. Performance is wonderful, it takes almost no time to display ton of data I have. When working on WPF application, SciChart is the least thing I have to worry about performance.

We evaluated several components and SciChart's was the best. Nothing particularly hard about the chart types, we just needed it to render insanely fast, and SciChart's chart did.

// Intuitive, XAML / MVVM Friendly API

Being fast is great but performance isn't everything. What really matters is if your WPF Chart control is intuitive, feature-rich and easy to use.

Since 2012 we've been building a WPF Chart by WPF developers, for WPF developers; focusing on MVVM, XAML Declarative Markup, templating, attached properties and styles.

As a developer, you will find SciChart's WPF Chart API intuitive and easy to use because it's written as a WPF developer would expect.

Read the tutorial below to see how easy it is to add a line series to SciChart with MVVM & XAML

// Developer productivity

Not only is our API intuitive and consistent, but since our WPF Chart Library is used by thousands of developers worldwide, there are now thousands of searchable forum questions, thousands of searchable documentation pages and hundreds of online code examples on our website.

Your developers will be able to create WPF charts with SciChart's chart library extremely quickly. Higher productivity will result in faster time to market, and less overall cost, if you decide to choose SciChart.

Read how to get started

// Feature rich & Powerful

SciChart is at the forefront of hundreds of applications which require complex WPF Charts and visualizations to view data in a variety of ways.

Far more than a simple line chart, column chart, or scatter chart, SciChart allows you to combine multiple chart types on the same screen, to link charts so they zoom & pan together, have complex customizable tooltips, select data-points and select series, and even implement your own custom interaction zooming or panning behaviours, custom legends or custom series.

Our depth of features is far beyond competitors and allows you to create complex, rich WPF Chart applications

// Excellent Tech Support

We have invested thousands of hours of our time developing a rich examples suite of WPF Chart examples, hundreds of hand-written documentation pages, all searchable and online.

What’s more, our technical support is excellent. Our forums search as you type, and if you have purchased priority support, ask us a question and you will often get the answer same-day. Our customers consistently rate us the best for documentation, tech-support & examples, as well as features and performance!

// Active Development

For 10 years we have been actively developing our WPF charts to make them faster, better and with richer features, and we have a team who work hard to handle bugs and compatibility issues.

In the last year we made four major releases via our website, but hundreds of releases via our Nightly build feed which publishes code to NuGet and Github. With SciChart, if you report a bug, you will get what you need to keep working quickly. This presents a huge value-add over our competitors and an even bigger value-add over open source charts, which may have good features but won't have the same level of development activity and support that SciChart has.

Because of the large userbase of Scichart, our software is battle tested, and you can rest assured that issues, should they occur, will be fixed quickly.

When we first purchased SciChart two years ago, our company was a bootstrapped startup that worried about every single penny. We wrestled with a few free alternatives for several weeks; but after trying SciChart, we realized that we'd ultimately save money and ship our software faster by investing in such an easy-to-use library.
