EGL_ANDROID_front_buffer_auto_refresh

Valid APIs

EGL 1.2+

Description

This extension is intended for latency-sensitive applications that are doing front-buffer rendering. It allows them to indicate to the Android compositor that it should perform composition every time the display refreshes. This removes the overhead of having to notify the compositor that the window surface has been updated, but it comes at the cost of doing potentially unneeded composition work if the window surface has not been updated.
