PyOpenGL uses ctypes for a 145% performance improvement

Jun 04, 2007

Following last month’s POGL vs PyOpenGL benchmark, Graphcomp received numerous suggestions from the Python community on ways to improve PyOpenGL’s numbers. Most made no measurable difference - however, the suggestion to use ctypes (a Python Foreign Function Interface module) resulted in a 145% improvement in PyOpenGL performance.
