Opaque overdraw

I theorise that opaque pixels drawn over existing ones aren't classed as overdraw because they only have to overwrite what's already in memory, as opposed to having to read, add/multiply (in the case of simple translucency), then overwrite. Can anyone confirm that? --TomEdwards 13:57, 16 Sep 2008 (PDT)
