One of the ways they do this is to output at higher flatness settings, which takes less processing time, but ALL curves, no matter what, are made by drawing tiny straight lines, and some GPUs aren't very good at finding the right balance between speed and accuracy, hence it will make some curves out of longer straight segments.
