The framebuffer is a part of RAM in a computer allocated to hold the graphics information for one frame or picture. This information typically consists of color values for every pixel (point that can be displayed) on the screen. A framebuffer is either: This article needs to be cleaned up to conform to a higher standard of quality. ...

A pixel (pix, 1932 abbreviation of pictures, coined by Variety headline writers + element) is one of the many tiny dots that make up the representation of a picture in a computers memory. ...
Off-screen, meaning that writes to the framebuffer don't appear on the visible screen
On-screen, meaning that the framebuffer is directly coupled to the visible display
The frame buffer organization may be chunky or planar. In chunky or packed pixel frame buffer organization, the bits defining each pixel are grouped together. ... Something is called planar if it is made up of flat planes, or pertaining to planes. ...

http://sourceforge.net/projects/linux-fbdev/ The linux framebuffer device (fbdev) driver was added to Linux to support the Macintosh display, which does not have a text mode. It was ported to x86 and is used to display a logo (often Tux) above a screen of text. (Note: Many pages link to linux-fbdev.org - which no longer exists)

With the Framebuffer Object extension, OpenGL gives the developer the ability to create offscreen framebuffers that can be used to render to textures of any specified format.
The Framebuffer class is used in conjunction with the RenderDevice to set a render target.
If you create a Framebuffer with a single, depth Renderbuffer attached (e.g., for shadow map rendering) it is complete in the OpenGL sense, however you will receive a completeness error because the glDrawBuffer and glReadBuffer attached to that Framebuffer have incorrect defaults.
