besides, i can hardly imagine where that comes from, as videogames seems 
to be able to push hundreds of frames per second. it seems that "16 ms 
lag" here comes from "synchronise screen updates with vblank" (1000/16 ~= 
60, which is common refresh rate for LCDs). and this synchronisation is 
purely optional on most hardware.

besides, why anyone may want to update the screen faster than monitor 
redraws it?
