I honestly don't know. The hardware performance may not scale linearly 
frame size, so you might see a disproportionate slowdown past a certain 
perhaps reflecting the need to use multiple buffers, etc.

Do you see any evidence that you're CPU bound? That might happen if our 
management is too inefficient, but I'd be surprised.
