Asynchronous Blit results

I did some benchmarks using the latest CVS of SMPEG on a dual 600 MHz
PIII system:

Normal shared memory updates (converting from 16 bpp to 32 bpp):
64 FPS, 22 FPS pixel doubled
Asynchronous shared memory updates (converting from 16 bpp to 32 bpp):
81 FPS, 24 FPS pixel doubled

Normal shared memory updates (16 bpp, no conversion):
90 FPS, 37 FPS pixel doubled
Asynchronous shared memory updates (16 bpp, no conversion):
131 FPS, 44 FPS pixel doubled

Whether or not sound was enabled had no effect on the results.

Heheh.

See ya!
