Is this the fastest way to clear a screen? Storing a "cleared" screen in another array and System.arraycopying it into the current pixel array?

public final class Display {

   private int[] clearedPixels;
   int[] pixels;
   int width;
   int height;
   private int size;
   
   public Display(int w, int h) {
      this.width = w;
      this.height = h;
      pixels = new int[w * h];
      clearedPixels = new int[w * h];
      size = w * h;
   }

   public void setClearColor(int color) {
      for (int i = 0; i < clearedPixels.length; i++) {
         clearedPixels[i] = color;
      }
   }
   
   public void clear() {
      System.arraycopy(clearedPixels, 0, pixels, 0, size);
   }

}

Try Arrays.fill().

Try Arrays.fill().
That method is just a for loop with some extra safety precautions that make it even slower. System.arraycopy is native code so it's lightning fast haha

Be careful with such assumptions within a highly optimizing runtime: http://psy-lob-saw.blogspot.com/2015/04/on-arraysfill-intrinsics-superword-and.html

Along the same lines, just because there's a classfile that defines method "foo", you can't assume that "foo" is ever actually executed.  Specifically intrinsic methods.  This is getting long in the tooth now...maybe I should update it sometime: http://www.java-gaming.org/topics/hotspot-intrinsics/27010/view.html
