Charts performance comparison

Arction has pioneered the charting components field in 2009. Since then we focus on high performance and advanced features, setting the highest industry standards.

LightningChart gladly participates in performance comparisons with other players on the market. High download counts by our competitors indicate they are setting LightningChart as the ultimate reference to their product quality goals.

Performance comparisons show that:
LightningChart large data set rendering performance is approx. 37,200 % better than the average of others
LightningChart real-time rendering capacity is approx. 2,300,000 % better than the average of others

Higher performance provides:

  • Real-time monitoring without flickering or delays
  • Full data accuracy, no reduction of data points needed
  • More data on screen
  • Better graphics quality
  • Responsive UI. Mouse or touch screen operations must update the chart instantly, and leave processor time for other UI controls to work as well

What does it mean for the developer?

  • Better user experience of an application
  • Higher level of customer satisfaction
  • Increased sales of this application

We prepared a demo of LightningChart’s unmatched scrolling line plot performance. Scrolling line plot of BILLION (1,000,000,000) data points or even more.

In the beginning of 2016 SciChart made a performance comparison where they compared SciChart v.4 performance against LightningChart v.6.5.1.

They claimed “SciChart is up to 8x faster than LightningChart”.

LightningChart is up to 12500x faster than SciChart
