You would think that the complex, high-res 3D animation, was the biggest drain on system resources. Or maybe the multiple light sources and complex shadows... but no...

When I turn off my UI (alt+F12) my framerate nearly doubles!

I really can't see how it is that this static image of some 16 color graphics should drain this much... In fact, the system should get faster, as the field of vision is reduced by it.
