      Depends on your goal. Different games will have different behaviour in any case.

          2D was fast in the year 2018 and early 2019. But is slower now.

          Problem:
          Microsoft, Intel and AMD have made patches to the O/S and CPU microcode to fix the Spectre & Meltdown class of security issues
          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spectr...vulnerability)

          These changes have a performance impact on tests that make a lot of API function calls into the Kernel. (e.g. Disk and 2D). Particularly the advanced vectors and windows interface tests. Performance can be roughly halved.

          Solution (Unverified):
          If you get the inspectre tool from Gibson Research it can report on what Spectre & Metldown patches have been applied and disable them. This will then restore the lost performance (but also reopen the security vulnerability). In our opinion, the security issues aren't critical for a home user (one user on a single machine). They are more critical in a server environment with multiple users however. So try disabling them and see if it restores the lost performance.
