Comparison Stage3D vs WebGL or stunning victory of Flash
Original post on japanese by Yasunobu Ikeda show interesting result - on synthesis performance test Stage3D on Away3D engine more than 30 times greater than WebGL on Three.js engine. Good jab Adobe. Table of availability look fun - it seems like author overplayed PSP.
Later mrdoob had found mistake in a tests. - for Stage3D Yasunobu had used single mash on all of object in the scene, but in webgl test he had used one mash for any object. After changings webgl test run as quick as the Stage3D test. Here is my test for Stage3D with one mash for one object it also lag as same WebGl.
