Summary0005238: Reduce CPU draw call overhead in the backend
DescriptionDue to the number of frequent small draw calls issued by the engine - especially during interaction rendering - with regular state changes in-between (textures, uniforms, ...), the CPU overhead per draw calls is high and can easily starve the GPU, leading to wasted time. Experiments with more modern draw call setups have shown that we can significantly reduce this overhead and thereby also improve the GPU frame times. Although this will currently not immediately result in improved framerates (as long as com_smp is enabled, because in that case any savings are hidden behind the CPU time of the frontend), it is still a necessary step to realize higher framerates when we also further optimize the frontend.
