difference between opengl3.1 and official/stable driver?
 
Hello together!

Sorry for asking that again, iam sure that iam not the first one :) but i can not find this type of question in the forum...

Could somebody tell or explain me whats the difference between the opengl3.1 and the offcial/stable 180.51 driver? Or tell where i can read about the difference?

Is opengl3.1 not included in the new offical stable driver 180.51?

What would you install or wahts the best driver on a linux machine for playing ex. eve-online in combination with wine?

my machine:
ubuntu jaunty x64
Nvidia GT8600

thanking you in anticipation,
Lightmans

No thats the reason why there is a seperate beta driver for it.

aha, okay...

so which driver would be better or the best, for playing a game like eve-online in combination with wine?

iam not sure, but eve uses shademodell 2 or 3 and can use directx10 on a windows machine..
i think its uses also opengl?! or not? :)

so which driver should i install?

thanking you in anticipation,
lightmans

If you don't plan on doing OpenGL 3.1 development or using OpenGL 3.1 applications, then I would recommend using the current official driver.
