WPF Chart Performance

SciChart’s legendary WPF Chart performance is enabled by our proprietary, in-house, C++ cross platform 3D graphics engine, Visual Xccelerator. The engine is entirely hardware accelerated targetting DirectX on Windows platform.

You won’t find real-world WPF/.NET Chart performance quite like SciChart!

With SciChart’s WPF chart library, it is now possible to display millions, or even billions of data-points in WPF line, scatter, or candlestick charts and update in real-time. It’s also possible to display thousands of series, or hundreds of fast WPF Charts on a single UI without stalling the rest of your user interface.

Our WPF Charts provide you with an API to zoom, pan, and scroll charts. You can allow your users to pan or zoom chart in X or Y directions or both; set or animate Axis VisibleRange programmatically or via MVVM to programmatically pan or scale.

Without doubt, the best charting library I have ever used. The examples suite is comprehensive to easily get you started coding on a new project. The sales & technical support staff are always responsible and eager to help. Chart customisation is extensive and rendering speed is quick.

High performance, multiple useful features, easy to use, and good documentation with detailed tutorials and examples. We applied SciChart in a DAQ&Testing system to display signals in real-time. This software definitely met our requirements.

Performance is exactly what we needed and after testing other products, SciChart performed the best for all our use cases.
Markus S
Back in 2014 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. Bugs getting fixed very fast without killing the quality assurance (as already seen by other well known WPF library vendors).
Stefan K.
Great performance and low CPU load, even on high data transfer (~200.000 samples/second). Also very good and intuitive documentation!
