    OpenGL and Speed

    when i run a program written in OpenGL(that i get from tutorials), generally the frame rate is extremely low, and the performance of the app is also low, any one know how to enlighten me on how to improve my performance and speed?

    Make sure you have hardware accelerated video drivers installed. Do you know what video card you have?
    Prove you can code in C++ or C# at TopCoder, referrer rrenaud

    what does the tutorial do?

    if im not mistaken 3D rage is a fairly old card?

    if so, its OpenGL accelleration will probably leave much to be desired.
