Is this statement correct?

"Turning on orthoscopic rendering improves the rendering speed by a factor of 2x-4x"

It sounds counterintuitive and appears to contradict the statement following it. Should this read "Turning OFF orthoscopic ..."?

Orthoscopic

Actually, orthoscopic ON means field of view off. Field of view is "perspective" and rendering in a perspective field used to slow rendering down by about 4x. That statement was written a while ago. Maybe things have changed.

Ironically, I read that last night and did a double-take, myself.
