  • This is why the hack required custom firmware, presumably the hacked firmware sucks the thumbnail out of RAM or the framebuffer and saves it to flash.

  • It is being cached and manipulated in volatile framebuffer or main RAM, which disappears the moment the device is powered off and is not comparable to the way deleted data can be recovered from persistent storage.

  • Four times as many texture fetches and pixel shader computations, not to mention four times the amount of framebuffer and depth buffer memory, leaves your GPU performing at roughly quarter speed.

  • Multisampling increases the cost of some stages along this pipeline (notably rasterization, depth/stencil testing, and framebuffer writes), but it does not affect the areas that are most often performance bottlenecks (vertex fetch, vertex shading, texture fetch, and pixel shading).

  • Even if you are bottlenecked by framebuffer bandwidth, hardware designers are clever and can pull all sorts of neat silicon tricks to make multisampling efficient, taking advantage of the coherency where the same color value is usually written many times in a row.
