VNC has a reputation for being very slow and choppy in drawing it's graphics.

Why is that so?
How and why is RDP better at doing this?


VNC is dumb, it is basically a video stream with pointer/keyboard emulation.
RDP is smart, it sends on-screen text as text, windows and their elements not as pixels but as information on their position/color/orientation/content/etc and only sends relatively huge images/video when other, more efficient approaches, fail.
