Blit and Flip

What is Blit and Flip?

Blip is Block Image Transfer and Flip is just flip :p

This two words refers to how to show data from back buffer to front buffer . Blit let you transfer data from back buffer to front buffer but flip operation is more simple (it flips the buffer).

However Flipping more complicated to setup but obviously faster, just remember to make your buffer has same format and resolution as front buffer.
