Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

How many polys can the Hololens render?

I was wondering how many polygons the Hololens can render before the frame rate starts to drop. I'm a recently graduated as a game and art designer and decided to focus on creating interactive models for Hololens.


  • @Saul_Aguilar performance and framerate on the HoloLens ends up being a little more involved than just the number of polygons the HoloLens can render.

    There are a few posts on the topic like this one.

    Bottom line it is about minimalism and balance.

  • Thanks for guiding me to the posts you provided, I'll be checking out the HoloLens optimized shaders soon. Thank you!

  • Hi Saul Aguilar,
    Can I find you on linked in?
    I would like to ask you something.
  • You can also get a lot more polys if you use Holographic Remoting
