Triple buffering is a computer graphics technique used for reducing flicker and improving the quality of an image rendered in 3D applications. Compared to double buffering, triple buffering comes with a significant speed improvement. However, since the improved image quality requires more rendering cycles for the graphics card, triple buffering will slow down the frame rate when running an application. Therefore, in certain situations, disabling it can be beneficial to performance.
