I wouldn't be doing that.  I cited the cg6 by way of contrast.  How the
points get into the display hardware is still open, but a framebuffer
seems unlikely to be involved.  (I suppose a framebuffer with something
like DVI-D could be used as a way to continuously replay sequences very
fast, but it has its limitations.  I'd rather build a hardware ring
buffer, but I tend towards hardware hackery.)
