    This is the classic "up to" scenario. It's anything up to 50% so that's anything from zero to 50%. The 50% being a theoretical maximum which will never, ever be reached outside of ideal testing conditions or equations on a blackboard.

    The proof of the pudding is in the real world application and that was ~5%. That's what you can expect to see from this. And that's why people aren't leaping on it immediately to make their games run faster which answers your question about availability.

    This is so dumb on so many levels. At least you acknowledge it in your name XD
