Using Vertex Buffer Objects
nVidia recently released a whitepaper outlining the proper usage of vertex buffer objects in OpenGL. A vertex buffer object (VBO) is a powerful extension that allows programmers to store certain data in high-performance memory (AGP memory). This allows for significant perofrmance gain in contrast with typical vertex calls (glVertex3f).
