2008-04-03 08:40 UTC The performance aspect of Acid3 on embedded devices
In my last post I discussed what "the animation has to be smooth" means for Web browsers on computers. Of course, embedded devices also have Web browsers, and Acid3 is as important for those as it is for a regular computer.
On embedded devices with smaller displays, the visual rendering may end up extending outside of the screen, but it should still look pixel-for-pixel identical to the reference rendering.
On devices with low power CPUs, the animation may end up being jerky, especially around test 26. This is because test 26 is significantly more CPU-intensive than the other tests.
On devices without a cache, the animation may be very jerky throughout. This is because without a cache, the test is affected by network conditions.
