Rendermode "GPU" working on Playbook?

Does specifiying <renderMode>gpu</renderMode> have any effect on the Playbook or is it simply ignored?

Re: Rendermode "GPU" working on Playbook?

The GPU render mode certainly has an effect.  Depending on the app it could make quite a difference in performance.  Note numerous limitations, however, and the fact that it may be extremely buggy in some ways.  Several of us have tried it in fairly simple games and experienced problems with parts of the GUI vanishing from time to time.
