Plotting the screen from protected mode (mode 13h)

I'm currently working on a fixed point renderer for Dungeons of Noudar, but it seems that plotting the final image into the VGA memory takes a lot of time. I've been wondering if sending the data directly to the controller would be faster?

I'm almost certain it is not, but I could be surprised on this? Wait states and general slowness seem to but troublesome - and also referencing outside the protected mode "bubble" would be probably quite slow, right?
