This section is intended as a reference for Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) application developers who are looking for ways to improve the performance of their applications. If you are a developer who is new to the Microsoft .NET Framework and WPF, you should first familiarize yourself with both platforms. This section assumes working knowledge of both, and is written for programmers who already know enough to get their applications up and running. Information in this section is based on version 1.0 of WPF.
The performance data provided in this section are based on WPF applications running on a 2.8 GHz PC with 512 RAM and an ATI Radeon 9700 graphics card.
