GTK 2 detailed performance

In the previous page we saw the overall GTK 2 performance in Gtkperf. But what about the individual test results? Can we spot any significant difference?

Detailed GTK2 performance

We can see that some graphical elements, as comboboxes, spinbuttons, etc. are quite faster on Mist that on Clearlooks; however, as the total rendering time is dominated by text and pixmaps rendering, the overall difference between the two themes are quite small.

We can also see that the complex fonts rendering mode is actually marginally faster in one specific benchmark – graphical text rendering into the GtkDrawingArea container. Strange but interesing indeed...
