the arrays being visible alone should't cause excessive cpu consumption, but
if you built a mechanism that refreshes the content of those (visible)
arrays, then it could happen..

i haven't seen your patch, so i can not tell you more, but, generally, using
many GUI objects at a high refreshing rate, may cause tremendous cpu
consumption, since pd lacks the option for hardware acceleration for
graphics, as i recently learned from this list.
