@nheagy …can a copy add 15+ letter words, or common proper nouns, and be considered original enough for its own copyright?

@alexkan Wow, interesting! Yeah — edges is what I was worrying about. How many instances of simultaneous "detached" layers can it handle?

@alexkan …rather CA is actually doing the scaling? So you can mix/match GL@native with UIKit@3? Does CG rasterize @2.6x or @3x?
26d in reply to alexkan               
Loren Brichter @lorenb
@alexkan I think I completely misunderstood how this was implemented… it's not some naive 3x framebuffer with a hw scaler…(?)

@pocketpixels Well, that's awesome. And messy. frames are effectively *required* to be non-integral all over the place then?

@pocketpixels @maxvoltar …that scares the hell out of me.
31d in reply to pocketpixels               
Loren Brichter @lorenb
@pocketpixels @maxvoltar huh, so does that mean that layers are actually getting downscaled on the gpu during compositing?
31d in reply to pocketpixels               
Loren Brichter @lorenb
@pocketpixels @maxvoltar I think native bounds *is* the internal "pure" 3x framebuffer.

@jfroy @mrgan @maxvoltar ehh… the bandwidth already has to exist from framebuffer memory -> scaler.

@kidminded @maxvoltar Best bet is to ignore it. Or buy the 6.
31d in reply to kidminded               
Loren Brichter @lorenb
@kidminded @maxvoltar No. If you try to compensate you'll just get double interpolation and it'll be even blurrier.

Loren Brichter @lorenb
@mrgan @maxvoltar wonder why though. gpu is already working as hard as it will be, would be able to kill the hw scaler. DPI panels exist. $?
31d in reply to mrgan               
Loren Brichter @lorenb
@maxvoltar my money is on the next generation keeping the same physical size and internal @3x scale, swapping with a higher res panel.

@maxvoltar good test: display a test image at internal (framebuffer resolution) of high-contrast vector text, lines, etc. see how it looks.
31d in reply to maxvoltar               
Loren Brichter @lorenb
@maxvoltar the bleedover from 1px@3x would be really small (betcha it's there though). bet it's mostly an illusion b/c of high contrast…
31d in reply to maxvoltar

Loren Brichter @lorenb
@maxvoltar don't think that's possible. think *everything* is rendered into framebuffer at 3x, hardware does downsampling to physical pxls.
