According to IEBlog, Windows 8.1 Apps as well as IE11 will use GPU power to process data, resulting in up to 45% faster image load and 40% lower memory consumption. And yes, when it comes to rendering, we are talking milliseconds here.
If Microsoft results are to be believed, then image decoding on IE10 took 31.9ms with a total draw time sitting at 81.5ms. Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 8.1 though decoded the image in 17.9ms with a draw time of 57.5ms.
