It depends. The internal code is almost the same, it is just the setup
routine that reads the vertex data from different format structures. On
a 486 the fixed point version will be a lot faster, on a Pentium they
are probably about equal. Use whichever format your own code works best
with...

BTW. it is a good idea to give your posts a subject line, so everyone
can tell what they are about...
