  • A framebuffer (frame buffer, or sometimes framestore) is a portion of RAM containing a bitmap that is driven to a video display from a memory buffer containing a complete frame of data.
  • The information in the memory buffer typically consists of color values for every pixel (point that can be displayed) on the screen.
  • Framebuffers differ significantly from the vector displays that were common prior to the advent of faster graphics (and consequently the concept of a framebuffer). With a vector display, only the vertices of the graphics primitives are stored.
