Performance Optimization

An important part of the general section are elements to optimize the performance. That is why you can even disable blend effect of the graphics  card (use smooth blends) or disable all output besides one (multiple video display). For the video display it is possible to change the frame rate  and to adjust the video decoding buffer. Remember: the slower a computer is, the higher the video buffer and the lower the framerate.
