    Re: benefits of GL_TRIANGLE_STRIP

    Triangle strips reduce the number of vertices required because only the first triangle in a strip needs all 3 vertices. Each subsequent triangle (after the first one) is defined with only a single vertex per triangle.

    See the Red Book, chapter 2 for more detail:
