Dear mailing list,
First time I write here, I posted this yesterday on the QtQuick forum and a user recommended me to post on this mailing list.
I noticed some heavy cpu usage in a QtQuick (using Qt5.5) osx app compared to an equivalent Native OSX app. Around 5% more cpu usage with a simple app, up to 15% more with more complex OpenGL tasks.
Both are using Core profile
Version: 4.1 INTEL-10.6.33
In QtQuick I do openGL inside a QQuickFramebufferObject as I've seen advised many times.
In OSX I draw inside a subclass of NSOpenGLView.
Here are the OpenGL Profiler statistics: http://pastebin.com/uWyy8RMk <http://pastebin.com/uWyy8RMk>
Where you can see that CGLFlushDrawable takes so much longer in QtQuick (avg 15418.39 microsec) than in Native OSX App (avg 1287.65 microsec).
I know that what CGLFlushDrawable really does is to set the internal OpenGL state and then do the drawing, so I wonder if I am misusing QtQuick OpenGL somehow. Here is how I set up OpenGL in QtQuick app:
Then, when setting the framebuffer (inside QQuickFramebufferObject::Renderer method createFramebufferObject):
I really hope there is a solution that makes me achieve similar performance because I really enjoy QML and I'd like to continue using it.
