Surface View is an OpenGL based application.
"OpenGL is a cross-platform standard for 3D rendering and 3D hardware acceleration", "Today's applications manipulate massive amounts of data in real-time by using OpenGL hardware accelerated geometry, real-time lighting, clipping, transformations and rendering" cited from OpenGL. From the user perspective, OpenGL is the Low level graphical library from Silicon Graphics, Inc. included to Windows 98/NT/ME/2000/XP/Vista/W7.
In order to get maximum speed from your video card you should download latest version of drivers from manufacturer. You can also check official OpenGL site on available optimized drivers.
