Can't mimic Chromium's chrom://gpu results in Electron


#1

Hi,

I’m having this anomoly with Electron which I can’t quite get a grip on:

I am unable to duplicate electron to read the same values under chrome://gpu as I do on Chromium. Primarily my concern is leveraging the GPU acceleration driver which I can on Chromium but cannot on Electron.

I’ve spent countless hours using the chrome switches on both Electron and Chromium to try and get to the bottom of this but to no avail. I’ve tried this across several versions of Chromium and Electron (from Chromium 50 to 52 on both).

Please see the photo below and let me know if you have any ideas of what might be the issue here.

Thanks very much,
Sal
