Thread: OpenGL 2.1

  1. #1

    Default OpenGL 2.1

    I have a Video card that has OpenGL 2.0 on it. Can I still use OpenGL 2.1 or do I have to wait till cards start coming out with OpenGL 2.1 on it? Or is it all software based like how the Nvidia drivers come with OpenGL 2.0.2?

    NVIDIA's next driver (1.0-9XXX) will have OpenGL 2.1 support (as well as GLSL 1.2 support).

    But you'd still need an OpenGL 2.1 card. Just like DirectX, you can't play a DirectX 9 game on a DirectX 8 card, IIRC. At least, not with the specific v.9 stuff, you'd have to fall back on an older DirectX version if it was coded in the game.

    Looks like I'll be upgrading my video card soon then. I shall wait for the new Nvidia 8XXX series for OpenGL 2.1.
