Deliver apps with more power and performance

No matter how dazzling the visuals are, if the user experience is sluggish or unresponsive, it all falls down. FireMonkey apps leverage the full power of today's hardware with native CPU performance and GPU powered visuals on PCs, tablets and mobile devices. With FireMonkey, you get performance and responsiveness that you simply can't get from RIA platforms, virtual machine runtimes, or dynamic languages.
