The tools and tests used to measure performance are described in the test plan (https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8251396)
Since the point of this JEP is to replace a deprecated pipeline we need to be flexible on performance
so the following outlines goals but we have to reserve the right to waive specific performance regressions
Success criteria for performance
- No open P1 or P2 performance bugs
- we expect most performance measures to at least be similar to OpenGL (within 10% on like-for-like h/w)
- we are not blocked by performance regressions that are marginal (5-10%) even if in some widely used case.
- we aren't blocked by performance regressions no matter how large, if it is deemed
an unimportant/marginal/uncommon case.
