Apart from the amazing work that Adafruit puts into releasing drivers for pretty much all their devices and modules for a vast number of micro controller boards, I always thought, the display drivers are way too slow.

Luckily for us, someone with lots of optimization experience took the challenge and made some of them blazingly fast!

This is by far my favorite lib when it comes to these small 128x160 tft displays (and apparently many others as well). Drawing speed increases by about an order of magnitude which allows a lot more time for the actual processing.
