// WPF Chart Performance

Our legendary WPF Charting performance is achieved by a mixture of extensive end-to-end performance optimisations, C# unsafe code, DirectX drawing (with fall-back to software) and intelligent culling / resampling / data transformation algorithms. You just won’t find real-world WPF Chart performance quite like SciChart!

With SciChart, it is now possible to display 10,000,000+ point line-charts, 1,000,000+ point scatter charts, or 1,000,000+ bar candlestick charts and update in real-time. It’s also possible to display thousands of series, or hundreds of WPF Charts on a single UI without stalling the rest of your user interface.
