[cairo] Looking for fastest GPU for Cairo ?

The application is to render PDFs and RTFs.

Backend? Its about speed and throughput.. so.. depends I guess on the GPU and OS..

One wacky idea I've also considered is rendering to SVG and then using something like NV_path_rendering to render SVG to bitmaps on  GPUs.

It really depends a lot on the workload you plan to execute, may I ask
what you intend to do?
It also depends on which cairo-backend you plan to use.

You mentioned text, however typical text usually has little to do with
vector operations from the GPU point-of-view.
