Default OpenGL 3.0 announced

I didn't know this, and I always keep up with the news.


All the PDFs have nVidia's name on them. So when can we expect a Linux driver with 3.0 support?

Default Re: OpenGL 3.0 announced

As Nvidia is one of the partners they will sure have some drivers. Though I don't know when those will be out.

Further note that for OpenGL 3.0 support you will need a Geforce8 card because it requires DirectX10 class features like geometry shaders. Further OpenGL 3.0 is surely nice but basically you already have been able to use all 3D features using Geforce8 OpenGL extensions. (Yes I know that stuff like that is now part of the spec and that it works differently but still you could have played with it)
