How about some optimizations in that direction?
I couldn't agree more. I understand the initial need for Reaper to control everything that that the CPU is doing. This is useful on slower machines where it might cause audio glitches to be sending calls the the GPU. However, for systems with even slightly powerful graphics cards there should be an option to process the GUI, Plugin windows and video on the GPU instead of the CPU. This is such an untapped power resource and I can't really think of a good reason why this shouldn't an option.
