Will the QML profiler (which requires building in debug mode) help me identify release-mode bottlenecks if debug mode slows my app 6x?

  • When built and ran in release mode, my app runs at 30FPS.
    When built and ran in debug mode it runs at 5FPS and takes about 20sec to start up.

    Will the huge slowdown of debug mode (which is required by the QML profiler) hide/mask any actual bottlenecks that I see in release mode? Note that I almost exclusively run my app in release mode, because otherwise it's too slow.
