In the upcoming IE 9, all graphics and text will be rendered with the GPU thanks to Direct2D (D2D) and DirectWrite. Direct2D is a hardware-accelerated, immediate-mode, 2D graphics API (Windows Vista and 7) that provides high performance and high-quality rendering for 2-D geometry, bitmaps, and text.
