I am writing a Windows based OpenGL viewer application.
I am using VBO + triangle strip + glDrawArrays method to render my meshes. Every thing is perfectly working on all machines.
In case of Windows Desktop with nVidia Quadro cards the working/peak working memory shoots when i first call glDrawArray.
While in case of laptops having nvidia mobile graphic cards the working memory or peak working memory does not shoot. Since last few days i am checking almost all forums/post/tuts about VBO memory issue. Tried all combinations of VBO like GL_STATIC_DRAW/DYNAMIC/STREAM, glMapbuffer/glunmapbuffer. But nothing stops shooting memory on my desktops.
I suspect that for VBO with ogl 1.5 i am missing some flags.
PS: I have almost 500 to 600 VBO’s in my application. I am using array of structures ( i.e. v,n,c,t together in a structure). And I am not aligning my VBOs to 16k memory.
Can any one suggest me how I should go ahead to solve this issue. Any hints/pointers would be helpful.
