Default Re: 8800GTX vs Quadro FX 4500 performance on large models

I do think you will probably get your performance back using VBOs. I know that display lists are convenient (if a bit slow to initialize, and a bit of a memory hog). I'm not sure why there would be such a big discrepency, though. BTW, you certainly can use triangle strips with VBOs. They can reduce the space/bandwidth required, but may not improve your performance compared to indexed vertex arrays that are well-ordered (to maximize vertex cache coherence).
