Primitive vs. Output Vertex Stream

The term "output vertex stream" carries with it the connotation that the sequence of vertices is being output from the vertex processing stage. Primitive assembly can happen in the middle of vertex processing, so this is incorrect. The term "Primitive" is more correct in this regard, as it applies to any sequence of vertices carrying a particular primitive interpretation scheme. Alfonse (talk) 05:17, 31 December 2019 (UTC)
