You will certainly increase performance if you have a unique vertex array in your 3D world, but you will not necessarily increase performance if you have more than one vertex array visible simultaneously in the viewing frustum.


The problem is that I have one interleaved array, use glLockArrays function, draw array with glDrawElements, tristrips.
I use several glDrawElements and there is one shared row every time, but performance is like without locking.

that isn''t surprising. Look into optimizing for the verex cache (which is usually about 10 verticies long) this will reward you with significantly higher poly throughputs assuming that your tris/sec rate is the bottle neck (which it often isn''t).

Thanks, but I failed again. About vertex cache: does it mean that I should process less data with a single glDrawElements (10 verticies or less)? Maybe I shouldn''t use display list?
How does this vertex cache works and when?
