I never looked into dosbox sources but I would expect, that at least VBE 2.0 linear framebuffer emulation is quite straightforward in dosbox, that simply dos app gets some allocated buffer that is shared with SDL which quickly copy it on the screen so there shouldn't be much overhead... I think that e.g. SB emulation takes more overhead.

DOS gives me freedom to unlimited HW access.
