I made a little app that renders a new sprite everytime a key is pressed, when launching from VS I get about 700 sprites before dropping below 16ms per render, on release it gets up to 2000 sprites

BUT....

If i just click on the .exe from windows I just get tired from spawning sprites before I can even see any slowdown...

what gives?

VS has two ways to launch an EXE -- the default is "Start Debugging" (F5) and the other is "Start Without Debugging" (Ctrl+F5).

If you use the default option, then it attaches a debuggable memory management system to your EXE , which makes all mallocs/frees/news/deletes/etc slower than usual.
