Internet Explorer 11 To Load JPG Images Up To 45% FasterIf you’re getting tired of seeing same old JavaScript performance improvements that are now as relevant as Britney Spears, then Microsoft’s latest post about rendering enhancements in the Internet Explorer 11 might cheer you up.

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.

Anyhow, if you are interested in YCbCr to RGB color conversion and all this technical lingo, see the original post.
