JAVA2D

This is the default renderer, and does not need to be specified in size, unchanged since processing-1.5.1.

P2D

This is the alternative two dimensional renderer, that relies on JOGL/OPENGL under the hood, changed since processing-2.0 now uses GPU instead of CPU.

size(WIDTH, HEIGHT, P2D)

P3D

P3D is the three dimensional renderer, and relies on JOGL/OPENGL under the hood, changed since processing-2.0 now uses GPU instead of CPU (the previous P3D enabled 3D sketches to run on systems with a poxy graphics card)

size(WIDTH, HEIGHT, P3D)

PDF

The PDF renderer draws 2D graphics directly to an Acrobat PDF file. This produces excellent results when you need vector shapes for high-resolution output or printing.
