The best way to broke everything  your game/program can call native dll but generaly wine main program doesn't use it and use inclue dll

So this means one of two things: 1) Spin locks (or polling with a loop, or something similar), 2) CPU intensive. Again, this is all subjective, but if the program is CPU intensive in linux and not in windows, I think some duties that are normally handled by the GPU are being handled by the CPU and I lack the information and experience to know implementation details of directx, I'm hoping someone else on the forums does... 

interesting but it's a limitation of directx implementation, wine, or xserver ?
