GDI in Windows Vista and 7 is mostly CPU bound
I'd like to hear more about this, anyone got more info or good links? I maintain that my experience has been that disabling DWM causes less
CPU usage (maybe me using multiple displays has something to do with it). On older systems it is even more pronounced.
If there is an increase in CPU usage when you disable DWM, where is it reflected on the task manager? Does each individual app use more CPU?
