I agree that there is around a 10% improvement when simply scrolling through a
large file. I found the best and most visible improvement of the patch is when a
command such as
:map or :history
is used (to force scrolling). At least on my setup, the improvement is very
visible - nearing the performance of console VIM. I'm sure on other systems the
visible improvement may not be as noticible, but on my (slow) setup waiting for
paint redraws is annoying. Unfortunately, not everyone has a fast video card.

It appears to work for Win16 too (at least doesn't
I tried scrolling through the tags file on a vanilla
and patched build - hard to be precise as my machine
is too fast ;)
I got the impression that a slight speedup (10%) was
evident, but this was using the high-precision timer
of my watch's second hand ;)
