A long time ago (tm) I used this approach successfully. It
involved using an (onboard) display controller with a limited
dotclock doing large resolution high bpp displays (but at
10 to 20 Hz), capturing the digital output in offboard Video
RAM, and displaying it at 90Hz. You get some slight artefacts
but in general worked well. And here I was copying the
whole screen each time. If you only copy changed areas,
you'd ge much better results.
