Caching the tiles will always be a useful resource preserving measure for
any map with enough layers.
Only tiles of small maps can be rendered in "realtime".
The large data throughput of the rendering algorithm makes efficient use of
CUDA quite hard. I expect it to be bounded mainly by memory throughput.
