Flash Player 10.1

I was checking in on a I started on the and came upon a tidbit that is quite exciting.  One of the users informed me that Flash Player 10.1 was expected to be a big “game changer” in terms of performance for Away3D.  Always skeptical, I had to check it out myself.

I checked my demo in my last post and was getting around 27 FPS.  I then updated to the pre-release of Flash Player 10.1 and reloaded the demo.  I was shocked to see my average frame per second jump to almost 40!  Without changing a bit of code I got a 30% boost in performance. Very cool.  Can’t wait to see what’s next as 3D in Flash becomes more mature.
