Hi,

As most of you probably know, I have been writing an OpenGL driver for a 3D engine that we have been working on for a while now and I have managed to get the majority of it working so far.

We also have a DirectX7 driver that works too. I have just tried this driver in place of my OpenGL one and have bench marked them both.

## Driver | FullScreen | Window

DX | 75 FPS | 260 FPS

OpenGL | 14 FPS | 9 FPS

Now, is there any reason why the OpenGL driver is sooooooooo slow?

Here is the mesh data that we have been using:

We have the mesh loaded in and then it is optimised for speed.

We have a hierachy of meshes in a a whole mesh.

Each part of a frame is then broken down into segments. Each of these are then broken down into faces - currently triangles.

The triangles are being rendered as triangles lists.
