A small thing caught my eye when I was comparing OpenGL and Metal pipelines running J2Demo.jar

It looks to me like OpenGL rendering pipeline uses brighter colors. I prefer the more subdued colors that Metal is rendering, but not sure if this is something you want to investigate further.

I tried to capture what I see below:

Metal (the green color has a yellowish tint):

Performance wise I did not see much difference either way.
