My impression is that the current Adobe Flash is not hardware accelerated, but Flash 10 (available in 2010) will be.

See this Adobe press release for more details:


I might be wrong. I hope I'm right, however, because Flash performance on the N900 isn't terribly good.

You are right. Currently Flash isn't hardware accelerated, this makes flash video sites painfull too.

Still running with 2009.41-10, I'm unsure if the flash player is hardware accelerated or not. In the context menu of Flash player, under Settings>Display (first tab from the left), there is one (selected) item called "Enable hardware acceleration". This looks good.

OTOH, I'm asking this because the perfomance of Google Streetview in my maeMaps Google Maps webapp seems relatively slow when changing views to the left and right (especially after I've seen "native" Streetview running on a HTC phone :-). In addition, flash games that are slightly advanced seem slow, too.
I'm aware that in both contexts, I have fullscreen flash. But still - the device is quite snappy in all other tasks I'm throwing at it, just flash seems a tad too slow in comparison.

Anyone with other experience / insider knowhow?
