So this looks like a replacement/complement of LightWave's Layout view, not a renderer. That would be very handy for high polygon scenes! I have a patio design with over a million polygons (don't ask, it's lazy modeling) that LightWave takes 5 seconds to update in OpenGL.

Cool but...

Are there any valid technical reasons why the Lightwave viewports can't be this fast? Is this one of the "core issues" the new team is trying to overcome?

Lightwave is still the best modeler IMO, but subds and such are relatively slow compared to some of the competition. Is it Opengl or Newtek's implementation of subds that are slowing things down? Or both?
