if you are talking x - there is not a lot that will change it. hardware limits
write throughput to the fb. updating a whole screen takes about 85ms. thats a
hardware limit (last time i measured it it was about this).

if you want a speed test - expedite exists. it simply measures rendering
performance with many paths.
