The GPU blacklist contains some GPUs (Intel Q965/Q963) that disable both desktopgl, and angle.
Currently the fallback seems to be opengl32sw.dll which is
- incredibly big (15 MB)
- incredibly slow
and thus not very attractive to be shipped as part of a product.
Is there any reason why the fallback is not the software renderer, which works quite well for QtQuick UIs?
I understand the need for a full OpenGL software rasterizer when using QGraphicEffects but most UIs should work just fine without.
Suggestion: Add a QSGRendererInterface flag like "fallbackToSoftwareRasterizer"
